Top 10 reasons to choose an Apricus Solar Hot Water System Top 10 reasons to choose an Apricus Solar Hot Water System

  1. Passive Sun Tracking

    The round tube design of the Apricus collectors passively tracks the sun to provide more solar collection for more hours of the day.

  2. Cyclone Rated

    Our mounting frames are designed in Australia and are rated to withstand cyclonic winds.

  3. Cold Weather High Performance

    Apricus evacuated tubes have a vacuum between two glass layers working like a thermos flask allowing up to 95% of the solar energy to be retained leading to higher performances in colder climates.

  4. Built-in Frost Protection

    All Apricus solar hot water systems have built-in frost profection (-15 0 C) without glycol so there is less maintenance.

  5. Superior Hail Resistance

    Our tubes have been independently tested and shown to withstand impact from a 25mm ice ball at 90km/hr.

  6. Light-Weight, Durable Design

    A 30 tube collector weighs approximately 110kg spread over a 2.2m x 2.0m roof space so there is no inconvenience using cranes to install. Reinforcing the roof structure is not necessary compared to other solar hot water systems than can weight up to 500kg on a roof.

  7. Designed in Australia to meet Australian conditions

    Apricus is an Australian owned and operated company. All systems are designed to meet even the toughest Australian conditions and built to last.

  8. Up to 15 Year Warranty*

What do our customers think?

What do our customers think?

Reliable and cost effective:  I have 3 Apricus Systems on 3 properties and I’m truly impressed. The water is always hot. My electricity bill is down. I would gladly recommend this system to anyone. I can’t actually remember a time where I have had to boost the system. I quite like the visual aspect of Apricus as well. I’ve had systems in the past that looked big and ugly.
