Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our great FAQs and Answers for our Solar Water Storage Tanks below:

What Is The Difference Between Pressurized Storage Tanks and Non-Pressurized Storage Tanks?

Pressurized Tanks include heat exchange coils inside (2-3 depending on size) that will be connected to a closed solar loop and an open Domestic Hot Water System.  Pressurized tanks exceeding 200 gallons need larger doors to fit through.

Non-Pressurized Tanks are custom-built, insulated, collapsible tubs that have submersible heat exchange coils that are designed to meet the requirements of each application.  Non-Pressurized Tanks can fit through the smallest of doors and are more portable than Pressurized Tanks.

How Do I Choose Which KIND Of Storage Tank I Need?

Pressurized Tanks are typically used in conjunction with private wells, and they help elongate the lifespan of the pumps.  Non-Pressurized Tanks come in larger capacities, and are generally used for home space heating systems or large domestic hot water systems as a pre-buffer tank.

How Do I Choose Which SIZE Of Storage Tank I Need?

There are many factors that you have to consider when choosing the size of a storage tank:

  • Square footage of the collector
  • The available space you have to put the tank
  • The water usage pattern of the building
  • The required temperature of water

Keeping these points in mind, here are some general guidelines for tank sizing:

  • For high temperature loads or in northern climates with flat plates: 1 gallon per ft2
  • For  medium temperature loads and typical with most Flat Plate Collectors: 1.5 gallon per ft2
  • For high temperature loads for Evacuated tubes or Low temp for flat plates: 2 gallons per ft2
  • For medium temperature loads for EVT: 2.5 gallons per ft2
  • For low temperature loads: 3 gallons per ft2In some cases, it is necessary to have 4+ gallons per ft2, but it should be analyzed based on payback
