For the most part the installation of a solar geyser will revolve around determining if the client wants to have a close-couple or a split solar geyser unit. Each installation type has it’s own pro-s and cons.
Close Couple system
The close couple system is the one where the solar panel or collector tubes as well as the hot water cylinder form one unit and is typically installed on top of the roof.
The split unit system is used when the solar panels or collectors cannot be installed with the hot water cylinder and the cylinder itself sits inside the roof space. This system generally works out more expensive due to the fact that the water must be piped too and from the cylinder and will require a pump to circulate the water.
