Step 2. The heat pipe transfers the heat up to the copper header pipe location in the insulated manifold box.
Step 3. A circulator moves water from the storage tank to the copper header pipe warming the water. The solar heated water is then pushed down into the storage tank for use.Anti-frost is built in to the Apricus system to ensure solar hot water can be provided even in cold regions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″]
