FAQS

Here are the most common questions we get asked about hot water.

Q. WHERE CAN I BUY A THERMANN UNIT FROM?

Thermann hot water units are all available from Reece Plumbing stores. Find your nearest store here.

Q. HOW MUCH DOES INSTALLATION COST?

Installation costs vary depending on your current home situation, and if any plumbing elements require upgrading or changing. It is best to consult with a licensed plumber to get a detailed quote for installation.

Q. CAN I ADD EVACUATED TUBES TO MY CURRENT ELECTRIC STORAGE TANK?

In most cases yes, however they will not be applicable for any State or Federal rebates. Consult with your plumber for further assistance if you're looking to add solar to your existing hot water unit.

Q. WILL I STILL GET HOT WATER EVEN IF IT'S NOT A SUNNY DAY?

Yes. Your Thermann unit has a built in booster to allow for days when there isn't enough sunlight captured. So you'll never be left without hot water!

Q. DOES MY ROOF NEED STRENGTHENING TO HANDLE THERMANN EVACUATED TUBES?

As Thermann systems are a split-system (tubes on the roof and tank on the ground) set up, a standard 30 tube installation weighs less than 120kgs on your roof. Systems with a tank on the roof can weight up to or over 500kgs when full of water.

Q. HOW DO THE TUBES HANDLE HAIL AND HARSH WEATHER?

Thermann evacuated tubes are manufactured to Australian Standards and have been designed and tested to withstand impact from a 25mm (1") ball of ice at 90km/hr.
