SOLAR HOT WATER SOLUTIONS | Ground Systems
RHEEM. SINCE 1937.
SAVE UP TO 80% OF HOT WATER ENERGY USE*
Rheem has been manufacturing in Australia since 1937.
Over seventy-five years later, Rheem is a household
name and is as much a part of the fabric of Australian
life as backyard cricket, the great Aussie barbecue
and lamingtons. Today we are the largest appliance
manufacturer in Australia, manufacturing over 70%
of all Australian made water heaters.
A Rheem solar hot water system is an excellent
environmental and financial investment. It can
significantly reduce fossil fuel energy use and
consequent pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
The nation’s - and world’s - focus on renewable solutions
has also seen Rheem develop its next generation water
heaters. We have played a major role in facilitating
the transition in Australia to more energy efficient and
environmentally friendly water heating solutions.
Rheem | You’ll be right with Rheem.
Not only are you helping the environment by installing
a Rheem solar hot water system, you could also enjoy
substantial savings on your household hot water energy
*
use of up to 80%.
SAVE MORE WITH GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES
The Federal Government has a small scale Renewable
Energy scheme whereby eligible solar water heaters
are entitled to a number of Small Scale Technology
Certificates (STCs).
These incentives can reduce your initial investment
making a Rheem hot water system not only a good
choice for the environment but also for your pocket.
Ask your local Rheem Solar Specialist how much you
will save.
INTEREST FREE OPTIONS
Rheem offers you interest free options
so you can enjoy all the benefits of owning
a Rheem solar water heater TODAY
whilst paying for your system over time –

Energy and greenhouse gas emissions reduction of up to 80% based on Australian Government Approved TRNSYS simulation modelling and apply when replacing an
electric water heater in Zone 3. Any financial savings will vary depending on type of Rheem Solar system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type
of water heater being replaced, hot water consumption and fuel tariff. Maximum financial savings off your hot water bill are achievable when replacing an electric water
heater on continuous tariff.

DIRECT SOLAR
Rheem Loline solar water heaters are direct
systems suitable for warmer climates and areas
with good water quality.
HOW DIRECT SOLAR WORKS
Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy
from the sun’s rays in roof mounted solar
collectors. This energy is transferred to heat
water stored in the storage tank. Ground
mounted systems rely on inbuilt pumps to push
the water through the system. Typically water
passes through channels in the solar collector
where the water is heated. As the water moves
out of the collector and into the tank, the tank
gradually gets hotter until the water reaches its
maximum stored temperature.
5. Heated water
enters the tank.
1. Water is pumped up
to the solar collector.
Rheem | We have the right Rheem for you.
Model No: 511325/2NPT
•Split design reduces the structural load on your roof.
•Multi-rise collectors efficiently absorb energy from the sun.
•Electric and Gas boosted models available.
4. Heated fluid
exits the
collectors here.
3. As the fluid rises
it heats up.
2. The fluid enters
the collector here.
INDIRECT SOLAR
Rheem Premier® Loline solar water heater is an
indirect solar water heater specifically designed for
cooler climates and areas with poor water quality.
5. The heated solar
fluid enters the
central tube in
the tank.
HOW INDIRECT SOLAR WORKS
Indirect models are designed for frost prone areas
and work in much the same way as direct models
but rather than heating water ‘directly’ in the solar
collectors, heat exchange fluid with anti-freeze
properties is heated. This in turn ‘indirectly’ heats
the water. Indirect heating prevents water freezing
and damage to collectors.
6. As the solar
fluid enters the
central tube,
it transfers
its heat to
the water in
the tank.
1. Solar fluid is pumped
up the pipes to the
solar collectors.
Model No: 591270/2T
•Complete frost protection.
•Split design reduces the structural load on your roof.
•Top mounted solar connections on the tank are
located safely out of reach of children.
•Features drain back technology to prevent freezing
of collectors in cold conditions and overheating in
hot climates.
WHY RHEEM SOLAR
NPT COLLECTOR
WHICH SYSTEM SUITS YOU
Energy efficient – uses up to 80% less energy than an
electric water heater, saving you money*.
The NPT Series is our largest selling collector. Designed
to supply you and your family abundant hot water, the
NPT collector is solidly constructed from high grade
copper and aluminium, and is housed in a durable
ZINCALUME® tray.
Which system you choose will depend on where in
Australia you live, which way your home faces and even
the pitch of your roof. So it’s important to talk to your
local Rheem Solar Specialist about the Rheem hot water
system which is ideal for you.
TBT – THE ULTIMATE COLLECTOR
There will be days during the year when your solar
system doesn’t receive sufficient energy from the sun to
provide all the hot water you need. Rheem gives you the
option to have either an in tank electric element booster
or a gas in-line continuous flow boosting unit. The choice
is yours; ask your local Rheem Solar Specialist which
option would be best suited to you.
Reduces carbon emissions – solar systems save up to
3.3 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year1.
Minimise reliance on fossil fuels and protect yourself
against future energy cost increases – take advantage
of Australia’s abundant supply of sunlight, and reduce your
reliance on expensive, non-renewable gas and electricity.
Complete range – the Rheem solar range includes both
split, ground mounted systems and complete roof mounted
models in a variety of capacities from 160 – 410 Litres.
Booster options – Rheem solar systems are available
with electric or gas boosting, providing hot water during
cloudy weather, or at night.
The TBT Series collector is designed especially for high
performance. Rheem has taken advantage of the latest
advances in heat-transfer technology to build superior
solar collectors to gather as much of the sun’s energy
as required. The TBT Series collector uses an advanced
titanium coated copper solar absorber plate combining
first grade copper with titanium, to show superior
qualities in solar performance when compared with
other solar collectors available.
