Tubes provide a greater surface area than flat solar panels, they take up less roof space and perform better in shady or cloudy conditions.

Suited for Coast Conditions

The anodised frame treatment combined with marine grade 316SS attachment plates, tube clips, nuts, bolts and washers make the collector extremely durable in coastal installations.

This high level of certification and standards testing’s exceeds what most solar suppliers in New Zealand are selling, so check the certification before you buy.

Purchased a solar hot water system from apricus in 2016.
This system is installed in Samoa.
Had some of the internal copper tubing fail.
Marcus replaced all the failed units even though it was out of warranty.
Excellent after sales service
Totally recommend Apricus systems.

A solar tube hot water heater was installed 18 months ago and is performing perfectly. There was some initial teething problems with the system due to the location of the collector. These were eliminated over the next 5 months and the whole system is working correctly. I highly recommend the system and installers for anybody who requires a solar water heater

We installed an Apricus solar pool heating system and just love it. Easy to use and already the pool temp is up by 8 degrees after one weekend. Looking forward to some great time in our solar heated swimming pool this summer.Gerard SchumacherMount Maunganui
