BRAND NEW UNUSED NAVITRON  SOLAR HOT WATER HEATER WITH STAINLESS STEEL INTEGRATED WATER TANK.

ECO FRIENDLY HEATING FROM THE SUN. NO RUNNING COSTS.


I bought this solar system to take to Spain to supply enough hot water for the whole family. However, since the kids have now left home, we no longer need such a big system. 


This Navitron Solar water heater is in its original packaging and has never been opened. This is a GENUINE NAVITRON SYSTEM, not a cheap chinese copy of it. It is made by the leading manufacturer/supplier in the UK. Please note the picture shows a 20 tube model. The model I am selling is a 30 tube model.


THIS SOLAR HEATER IS STILL UNDER THE MANUFACTURERS 2 YEAR WARRANTY.

It Might be possible to extend this to a 10 year warranty according to the manufacturers website (see link in the questions and answers section).


When bought, it cost me well OVER £600. Similar systems  can cost a LOT more than this - Some on ebay well over £900. 

Whoever buys it will be getting an absolute bargain. 


Due to the weight of this item I am not offering postal delivery. The winning bidder will need to collect or arrange their own transport. Item location is York


Technical stuff .....

30 tube integral tank solar panel 47mm tubes

Overall dims: 2220 x 1307 x 1346mm 

Panel Area: n/a 

Active Tube Area: 2.49m2

Tube Lenth: 1.5m

Width of absorber (internal glass tube): 37mm

Tank's Capacity: 166ltrs 

Total Capacity: 206.3ltrs

The design of this type uses the Thermosyphon principle.

The SFA evacuated tube solar water heating panel is the simplest vacuum tube system available. The stainless steel cylinder at the top of the panel is the well-insulated hot water cylinder - it is double skinned and has two inches of polyurethane foam between the two skins. 

The stainless steel construction means that it will not corrode, and its simplicity requires no ancilliary components. The vacuum tubes are double-skinned, with a vacuuum between the two layers of glass. The water in the cylinder is able to enter the central section of each vacuum tube, where it is heated by the sun. The tubes themselves are 93% efficient - so they are able to heat water even in low sunshine or when ambient air temperatures are low. The warmer, less dense water rises into the storage cylinder, displacing cooler water which descends into the tube for heating. 

The SFA design's low cost, simplicity and independence from electricity makes it an ideal choice for off-grid living. A stainless steel header tank with float valve is available from Navitron if the system requires automatic filling.

Dear j_o_h_n.h,

 Hi

I don't know anything about these so can you tell me, as you are using the hot water does it re-top itself up with cold water or do I have to manually turn a tap to re-fill it when it is empty ?

Thanks

Karen

 Dear cheapncheerful7158,

 Hi Karen, 

 You can do either - it's your choice. You can fit a small water tank separately which has a ballcock inside (like in the cold water tank in your loft or inside the toilet cistern. The cost is £25.78 so and with this, you wouldn't need to mess around checking levels and manually refilling all the time.

 

 The other option is you check the water level and turn the tap on when the water level is low.  I would recommend the former simply for ease of use.  The water tank with the ballcock to control refilling is available from the manufacturer separately here......

I hope this answers your query as much as you need.

Many thanks,

John.

 

UPDATE: The question and answer facility IS working - I was  doing something wrong!

Another Question........

Dear j_o_h_n.h,

Hi will this work with a Gas combi boiler? many thanks Andy

Dear topsparky65,

Hello
Andy,
Yes
solar heaters CAN be used with combi boilers. You will need a Hot water divert valve for use with combination boilers or instantaneous water heaters. This
means that a solar system can now be linked with a combi boiler as back up.
Cross-flow contamination is eliminated by the deployment of solar check valves integrated within the valve
.

Thanks
for the enquiry.
