How Do Solar Geysers Work?

Solar geysers heat up your water through the use of the sun instead of electricity. Located above the absorber glass tubes or flat plate panels, is a hot water tank. Hot water becomes lighter and rises into the tank the moment it heats in the absorber and there is a natural thermo-siphon. And because South Africa has plentiful sunshine, a solar geyser is a practical choice.
