The Plane System
This is a simple method that circulates the water and can be added on to almost any system. “Tee” into both cold and hot inlets close to your water heater/ tank. Cold water is drawn from low in the tank by the solar powered pump. It is passed through the panels where it is heated and returned to near the top of the tank where it is stored for use.
The Glycol (engine coolant) System (1)
This method can be used when the Heliatos Solar Solar System is added to a water heater with a heat exchange system that is not connected to engine heating
The Glycol (engine coolant) System (2)
This system can be used when the Heliatos Solar Solar System is added into a water heater with an exchange unit already using engine heating
