Suppliers and installers of the best quality high and low pressure solar hot water systems in Cape Town and surrounds.
We are one of only twelve solar hot water installation companies accredited by the City of Cape Town. We have met the rigorous criteria so you can be assured of an excellent installation and service.
All our solar hot water installations are PIRB Compliant (Plumbing Industry Registration Board). This means that they are in accordance with SANS 1307, SANS 10254 and all other relevant national standards.
We can issue a PIRB COC. This is a requirement for all new builds and renovations where a Certificate of Occupancy must be issued by the City of Cape Town.
The high-pressure solar geysers are sourced from South African manufactures and are specifically designed to operate in high radiation environments.
Each system consists of a geyser and a panel. The geyser capacity is determined by the number of people in the household, and the size or combination of panels is determined by the surface area to water volume ratio. Xstream Geysers are available in 150lt, 200lt and 300lt capacity. High pressure, 400kPa horizontal cylinders. The Xstream Geyser has a solid, high strength, corrosion resistant Derakane® Epoxy Vinyl Ester inner tank. Durakane® is used globally in the storage of high temperature (above 100ºC) liquids. The product also has a proven track record under high pressure and carries a 7-year warranty. Durakane® is Food and Drug approved for use in the storage of potable water. The advantage of using geysers made of this material are:
- Tank is corrosion free and electrolysis free
- No need for an anode, and thus saving on the resulting maintenance costs
- The resin is a poor conductor of heat, minimizing heat loss at night
- High density polyurethane foam injected between the inner tank and outer glass reinforced UV stable gelcoat casing, forms a chemical bond that results in a solid, rigid insulation barrier around the inner tank
- The product is light and easy to install
We also work with Kwikot geysers.
SunScan Flat Plate Panel Specs Supplied in 1.7m², 2m², 2.4m² and 3m² formats. Housing is aluminium, bent and shaped to create a sturdy enclosure for the absorbing grid. Absorber grid is manufactured from copper, riser bars are inserted into a special extruded sleeve in the header. This allows for a strong weld, which is less prone to cracking and eventual leaking. Flat plate fins are spring clamped onto each individual riser pipe to enhance heat transfer from the fin to the riser pipe. Absorber grid and manifold are sprayed with highly absorptive finish to maximize heat absorption. The insulation is made of high density styrene bonded to coroplast for structural strength and then covered with aluminium sisalation on the inside to help deflect radiation to other parts of the manifold. Glazing consists of a 4mm thick armour plated glass. All panels carry a 10 year warranty.
Costing varies depending on installation specifics, including:
- System type – external or split system
- Existing reticulation and fittings
- Location of solar water system in relation to existing piping

“The installation went 100% according to plan, the system works 100% and the rebate went through. In the 3 years that I have been back in South Africa, there has not been a person / company / service provider that has come remotely close to the professional service that you provide. If all companies were like yours, I would live a long and peaceful life with no grey hair.”
