As part of many solar water heating systems, a solar water storage tank functions much like a traditional hot water tank. By monitoring the water temperature in the tank and keeping it consistent, the solar storage tank ensures you have a steady, safe flow of hot water. Usually insulated, these solar water heater storage tanks also prevent heat loss.
Solar storage tanks often work in tandem with your circulator pump (in active systems) and temperature controller. Once the tank is fully charged, the temperature controller sends a signal to your pump to shut off.
SolarTown offers storage tanks for active and passive as well as direct and indirect solar thermal water systems. Our tanks come in a variety of sizes and are often packaged with temperature controllers and pumps as required. Some storage tanks are also equipped with back-up heating elements to provide warm water during peak demand or when solar energy cannot maintain desired temperatures.
