Apricus GL 160l gas boost 20 evacuated tubes solar hot water
The Apricus solar collector is a highly efficient thermal solar system, suitable for both domestic and commercial heating. The innovative technology of the Apricus solar evacuated tubes combined with special heat pipes and glass wool insulation is environmentally friendly, maintenance free, reliable and frost protected.
Coupled with a top quality AquaMax glass lined tank, solar hot water is now even more affordable thanks to our deeply discounted prices and solar hot water rebates (where eligible).
Apricus is reliable and maintenance free
An Apricus evacuated tube solar collector system should last as long as the roof it's on. This Apricus system meets the requirements of Australian Standards relating to freeze protection and will cope with temperatures of between -23 and -25 degrees Celsius - far colder than any region in Australia experiences!
Apricus is environmentally friendly
Apricus evacuated tube solar collectors not only stop you being so reliant on electricity and gas, they also look after the environment by being primarily constructed of recyclable materials. Even the packaging is recycled cardboard.
The savings Apricus brings
On average 40% of a Australian household's energy cost is for water heating. An Apricus evacuated tube solar collector system can more than halve that cost.
An Apricus system can be retrofitted to your existing home, or included in the plans of your new dream house. If you were to add the extra capital required to add a solar hot water system in your new house, the additional amount of interest payment would easily be covered by the savings in energy costs.
AquaMax Storage Tank

AquaMAX are made in Australia for Australian conditions. AquaMAX have been associated with design and manufacture of water heating in the Australian hot water market for over sixty years.
Rinnai gas booster
If the water requires some additional heating the included Rinnai gas booster heats the water to the required temperature. The Rinnai booster only heats water when required (or when manually switched on), therefore saving you money through reduced gas consumption.
