Do I Need To Mix The Glycol I Purchased From SunMaxx With Water?

Do I Need To Mix The Glycol I Purchased From SunMaxx With Water? No. You can commission your system with glycol strait out of the container. Our XMaxx Glycol Solution is not only premixed with distilled water but also made with bio-based raw materials and uses 20% less energy to produce than standard propylene glycol!

I Just Got Finished Installing My Solar Thermal System, Its About 3pm and The Sun Has Been Shining All Day.  Should I Begin Commissioning The System With Heat Transfer Fluid? NO!!!  This is dangerous.  If your collectors have been sitting in the sun all day they have been heating up.  As soon as you introduce the Heat Transfer Fluid in the system it will immediately steam and could cause personal harm.  Wait till early the next morning when the collectors are cool to commission the system.

This can cause you system to overheat when the sun comes out in the morning. To prevent this you can activate the antifreeze function in your SmartMaxx controller. This function will turn the pump on as soon as your sensor 1 reaches a pre determined temperature, say -5 degrees. This will run only for a few minutes and then turn off, thus keeping your glycol above […]

Do I need to use glycol if I live in an area where I only have a few days of freezing per year?

Question: Do I need to use glycol if I live in an area where I only have a few days of freezing per year? Answer: If you live in an area that doesn’t get below freezing often (less than 5 days per year) it is possible to get away with using water instead of glycol. In order to make sure that the water doesn’t freeze you need to have your controller (ie. SmartMaxx DHW-Plus) run with freeze protection. The freeze protection setting monitors the collector temp and when it goes below a specified temp (40 F) the pump will kick […]
