Solar Hot Water Piping Line Set FAQs

What Is FlowMaxx Solar Piping Used For?
FlowMaxx flexible solar piping is a pre-insulated piping run from your solar collectors to your pump station in a typical residential solar hot water installation.

What Are The Benefits of Using FlowMaxx Pre-Insulated Solar Piping?
The biggest benefits are a reduction in installation time and cost while still using the best performing products available for your solar hot water installations.

Why Are There 2 Pipes Instead of 1?
One pipe is for the HOT side of your system (from the collectors to the pump station) and the other is for the COLD side (from the pump station back to the collectors).

How Much Solar Piping Do I Need?
A typical residential solar thermal system will use about 80ft of flexible piping. That is why our stainless steel solar piping is sold in 80ft and 160ft segments - to ensure that you have enough, but never so much that you waste your money.

Which Size Solar Piping Should I Get?
Typically, residential solar thermal systems use 3/4" piping. It is recommended that you use the 3/4" FlowMaxx solar piping to match. However, if you are using larger 1" pipe in your home, then you can also use the larger 1" FlowMaxx dual solar pipe to match this as well.

The Pipe Is In BSP, What Is That? Will It Work For Me?
This is standard British pipe threading. Our connection fittings are available in 3/4" and 1" and converts the BSP to the standard NPT we use here in the United States.

What Is The Advantage Of 19mm Insulation Over 13mm?
Most manufacturers use standard 13mm insulation on their flexible solar line set.  However, Silicon Solar uses 19mm insulation.  This gives you additional thermal protection and higher system performance / efficiency, which means the highest possible return on investment.
