Rheem’s roof-mounted solar hot water systems have storage cylinders made of either quality stainless steel or vitreous enamel coated mild steel. Stainless steel is prominent in most kitchens for its purity, aesthetics, ease of maintenance and corrosion resistance. Stainless steel acts as a natural barrier to corrosion, whereas vitreous enamel coated water heaters require a sacrificial anode. The outer casing of Rheem’s stainless steel solar range is constructed from weatherproof COLORBOND® steel. Rheem offer a choice of four contemporary COLORBOND® steel colours with their modern design roof mounted range.

Our roof-mounted storage systems come with either 5, 7, or 10 year cylinder and collector warranty depending on the model you choose. As further support Rheem has in place easily accessed service providers. These experienced technical personnel are authorised to provide you with whatever service your Rheem hot water system may require.

Which system you choose will depend on where in Australia you live, which way your home faces and even the pitch of your roof. So it’s important to talk to your local Rheem Solar Specialist about the Rheem solar water heater that is ideal for you. And, your local Rheem Solar Specialist has all the latest information on the currently available Solar Incentives – ask them how much you can claim.

If your home is in a temperate or tropical location, which is not subject to frost and you have good quality potable water, then the Rheem 52L Series system is ideal. This system operates on the natural thermosiphon principle, i.e. when water is heated it rises.

The 52L Series system directly heats the water as it passes through the collectors and then automatically circulates it back into the storage tank. This process continues whilst the sun is shining, giving you and your family ample hot water.

52H Series

Designed for areas which experience frost or snow. It uses the highly efficient heat transferring properties of a special anti-freeze fluid to transfer the absorbed energy to heat the water indirectly. With an ‘indirect system’ water does not pass through the collector panels, instead the anti-freeze mixture is circulated from the collectors through a stainless steel heat exchanger, transferring the heat into the water.

The benefit of this ‘indirect’ heat exchange process is that the system can be used confidently in frost areas, without risking damage to the system; it offers protection against damage in freezing conditions.

The Rheem Hiline® solar hot water heater is ideal for warmer climates and areas with good water quality. It's a great option when ground access is limited as the storage tank and solar collectors are mounted together on the roof.

The 52S Series system directly heats the water as it passes through the collectors and then automatically circulates it back into the storage tank. This process continues whilst the sun is shining, giving you and your family ample hot water.

Rheem Premier Hiline® is an indirect solar water heater specifically designed for environments prone to frost. Premier Hiline® models feature heat exchange technology, maximising solar gain whilst providing frost protection. Rather than directly heating water, special heat exchange fluid flows through the solar collectors to capture the sun’s energy. With its anti-freeze properties, this fluid will prevent freezing in the solar collectors down to -7°C.
