SolarArk Systems Supply Hotter, Faster, Turbo Efficient Hot Water With An Extra Long Warranty

SolarArk Solar Hot Water Systems are a premium solar hot water system supplied and installed by Whywait Plumbing.

 SolarArk is an Australian manufacturer and recognised leader in high-performance solar evacuated tube hot water technology.

 This technology can be utilised in every possible application. For example, Whywait Plumbing can install SolarArk systems on residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

 Very simply SolarArk evacuated tubes consist of the following:

  • Two glass tubes that are fused at the top and bottom. This space between the two tubes is evacuated to form a vacuum that locks in the heat as the suns heat passes through the outer layer of glass, allowing light to pass through the vacuum but no heat.
  • A copper heat pipe running through the evacuated tube’s centre connects with a common manifold connecting up to 30 evacuated tubes together.
  • That is then connected to an energy-efficient circulation pump that pumps the heated water to a storage tank on the ground.

SolarArk Sizing Guide

A domestic SolarArk system is available in the following sizes providing plentiful hot water for families ranging in size from 2 – 9 people.

  • 250-litre storage tank with 20 tube manifold: 2 – 4 people
  • 315-litre storage tank with 20 tube manifold: 2 – 5 people
  • 315-litre storage tank with 30 tube manifold: 2 – 5 people
  • 400-litre storage tank with 30 tube manifold: 2 – 9 people

“After 7 phone calls to other “24 hour 7 day services”, finally found Whywait Sunday morning. They answered the phone, diagnosed the problem and had my hot water system fixed promptly.”

SolarArk Evacuated Tube Solar Hot Water Systems Design Features

  • Can significantly reduce your energy costs for heating hot water which can be as high as 38% of an electricity bill in winter.
  • STC federal government rebates that can reduce your installation costs by an average of $1500 depending on your system’s size.
  • The constant profile of the round tube means that the evacuated tube solar collector is always perpendicular to the sun’s rays which means solar energy is constantly absorbed over the course of a day.
  • Greater absorption of the sun’s rays even on overcast days and in winter, which means a lesser dependency on your back-up hot water heating systems such as electricity or gas.
  • SolarArk evacuated tubes are resilient to all our weather conditions ranging from hail storms, strong winds and frosts.
  • SolarArk evacuated tubes also reduce heat loss, which means they can reach higher temperatures as high as 280ºC compared to 180ºC for most flat-panel collectors.
  • SolarArk collectors, heating your water faster and more efficiently with a minimal loss of heat.
  • SolarArk evacuated tubes are modular in design and parallel in formation.  As a result, the number of tubes manifolded together can be increased or decreased at will from 20-30 tubes depending on your energy needs.
  • SolarArk tubes require less roof space than solar panels for greater home aesthetics plus are not restricted to north-facing roofs.
  • SolarArk tubes are strong and resilient, but should one break, they’re easy and inexpensive to replace.
  • SolarArk currently provides the longest manufacturers warranty in the Australian market of 15 years.  That’s your assurance of high quality and continuous performance for your family’s enhanced hot water comfort.
