Getting Started:

How to get started? Step 1 Calculate your daily hot water load/usage. Step 2: Select your kit based on the required hot water consumption. Step 3: Select the collectors you are interested in using (flat plate or evacuated tubes). Step 4: Give us a call to review any special requirements for your project.

We guarantee to save you 15% on your next commercial solar thermal project .

What do the systems include? The base pre-package kits include our proprietary UniMaxx commercial solar pump station, StorMaxx commercial solar storage tank, SmartMaxx solar control system (for remote monitoring).

How to install?

1) Install your StorMaxx solar storage tank (standard system uses non-pressure solar buffer tank. Tank size varies based on size of load).
2) Install your UniMaxx solar pump station (standard system design treats the solar tank as a buffer tank with load side and solar side external heat exchangers)
3) Connect your solar pump station to your solar tank
4) Connect your load to your solar pump station (pump station varies based on hot water requirements)
5) Install mounting system on roof for solar collector (mounting system selected based on collector choice)
6) Install solar collectors on mounting system (Choose from SunMaxx evacuated tube or flat plate collectors)
7) Connect solar piping between solar pump station and solar collectors (SunMaxx provides pre-insulated piping)
8) Charge your solar system (Both drainback and glycol based systems available)
9) Start saving energy!
