Here’s An 11 minute detailed overview.
The round tube design of the Apricus collectors passively tracks the sun to provide more solar collection for more hours of the day.
Our mounting frames are designed in Australia and are rated to withstand cyclonic winds.
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.
All Apricus solar hot water systems have built-in frost profection (-15 0 C) without glycol so there is less maintenance.
Our tubes have been independently tested and shown to withstand impact from a 25mm ice ball at 90km/hr.
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.
Apricus is an Australian owned and operated company. All systems are designed to meet even the toughest Australian conditions and built to last.
We provide a 15 year collector warranty and 10 year warranty on solar hot water tanks. *See Warranty for details.
Plumbers that install solar hot water systems trust and prefer Apricus. Our systems are easy to install and the known high performance from superior components means their customers are happy too.
Our products are available through 1,200 resellers across Australia so you will enjoy local, dedicated support.
Keeps up with me and the family: I installed our Apricus 40 tube 400L system in the middle of winter last year… the shortest day of the year here on the mid north coast NSW – we had a really nice clear day so I flicked off the booster to “test it out” and we had plenty of hot water for the four of us. We do use the booster after periods of extended rain / cloudy weather – but our hot water bills remain minimal.
