Maintenance

Maintenance of the installation of the panel

It is desirable to perform a cleaning of the tubes every two weeks to prevent dust from accumulating and possibly blocking the sunrays, especially in the dry season. If regular cleaning is not performed the collector’s efficiency will diminish over time

Depending on the hardness of the water every few years the complete system needs to be thoroughly cleaned, removing the remaining limescale inside the tubes. This is very important because when the local water is hard and interior cleaning is not performed the collector may lose its effectiveness and gradually become unusable.

It is very important that when the collector is not in use (i.e. holiday periods) the system is emptied and covered, not exposing it to sunlight. Because if the water inside the collector is not used the temperature continues to increase eventually reaching a boiling point and dangerous pressure levels that can ruin the installation.
