Hi,
The most common problem would be that the hot water from the solar has tripped the reset or high limit switch in the hot water heater...
Check to make sure that the red reset button is reset....
Also check to make sure that you actually have power to the hot water heater, the circuit breaker may be tripped...
If you have power to the unit and the reset button is not kicked, then the heating element maybe bad...check for power to the element, if there is power there then the element is bad...if no power then check backwards in the wiring to see where the power stops at...

Solar hot water not hot


Solar hot water giving you cold showers? Eight tips to warm you up.
Eight tips to get the most from solar hot water
We argue that policy needs to look beyond installation and that installation practices need improving, but what can you do to get an effective installation?
First, seek out independent advice from sources such as local sustainability events and organisations. They can help you understand what suits your circumstances and what characterises an effective installation.
A good organisation is theAlternative Technology Association. They provide free advice to members, sell a solar hot water guide, and organise open house events where you can see and discuss domestic sustainability technologies.
Second, consider whether solar hot water is the best option. It may be that a hot water heat pump or an instant gas system is a suitable choice, depending on where you live, how much cloud cover you have, or what sort of building you are in.
Third, make sure all your hot water pipes are insulated, especially the pipes that go to and from the tank and solar panels. You typically need insulation to be 15 mm thick. Without proper insulation you could lose half the energy you are trying to collect.
Fourth, get a booster switch installed in a convenient place inside, so you can easily turn the booster off if there is plenty of sun, or on if it's cloudy or you need more hot water.
Fifth, if you go solar, install a system that has a sufficiently large tank matched with a sufficiently large solar array for your needs. Water is very good at storing heat. A large tank could help you store solar energy for those rainy days.
Sixth, you may need to change electricity tariffs if your booster is electric, to ensure the sun gets a chance to heat the water before the electricity does.
Seventh, you may need to change your peak hot water use habits so that the tank water is at its coldest after morning use, after which the sun can then heat it during the day. The booster can "top up" overnight, ready for morning showers.
Eighth, before you install solar hot water, examine and discuss household expectations around hot water use. Will they need to change? Are members of your household prepared to make that change?
This may be the most profound change you can make, but also perhaps the most challenging.

The heating element continues to heat even after the hot water tap is turned off thus popping the thermal switch. The red light is off on front of unit but you can hear the water heating. Any ideas?


check the pressure control that switches the element on or off
if it is faulty then it switches on when the tap is turned on dropping the pressure but it will not recognize that the increase in pressure when the tap is turned off so it keeps heating the water.

Does off peak only heat up at night??? Will it automatically heat up when it cools???


yes only when the load from the power station is low at night, the water tank has a thermostat that turns the power off when hot . it does not heat during the day. Get the biggest tank you can if you use a lot of hot water in the day. We have a lot of sun so have a sola hot water system with a gas back up.

How to design and calculate the solar heat panel for hot water system for the concentrated 100 nos. staff toilets and changing rooms of commercial building in Beijing. What is the basic and ancillary...


Usually toilets do not require hot water.
Is the plumbing divided into hot and cold water pipes?
If toilets are hooked to hot water, how many flushes and how many gallons per flush per day.
What is the expected consumption per each worker?
What is the latitude from equator, and expected solar input. Further north, and hazy atmosphere reduce input. Beijing has smog I believe.
How often is the solar panel going to cleaned of smog and dirt for maximum collection?
If the area has hard water, then the entire system is prone to sediment build-up and failure unless water is artificially softened.
Solar water heater temperatures can exceed 180 degrees at times. This temperature will damage storage tank that is not made for that temperature.
Most solar water heater systems have pressure regulating valve and expansion tank to accommodate occasional high temperature and pressure.

A good fellow to contact might be at following website:
http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/WaterHeating/water_heating.htm

Solar collectors are usually connected to a circulating pump, and then the heated water is stored in a tank.
The pump circulates water continually from solar collectors through a storage tank.
This type of system would use ordinary tank-type water heater for storage.
Most of these systems also utilize a back-up heating element inside the tank.

More complicated systems circulate special liquid through spiral tubes inside the water heater.
This type of heater would be an indirect water heater.
Indirect heaters are used for solar collectors, and used with boilers, or any outside heat source.
