GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PLACEMENT

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PLACEMENT

  • Before the installation of the solar water heater, read carefully all the installation instructions listed in this website.
  • Before the installation of the solar water heater it is necessary that all the details on the correct and safe installation of the device such as the position selection, pipelines and cables route, static resistance and control of the surface on which will be placed the machine... etc are agreed between the customer and the installer.
  • The position on which you will choose to install the solar water heater shall not be shadowed, throughout the year, by trees or other obstacles.
  • Installation must be in accordance with applicable local electrical and plumbing regulations.
  • For best performance, the heater must face the South in the North Hemisphere and the North in the Southern Hemisphere. If it is not entirely possible to place the device oriented toward the equator, you can orient it to 30 ° east, if your greatest needs for hot water are before 14:00 p.m., and if they are after 14: 00 p.m. you can orient it to 30° west. In both cases the loss of the overall gain of the solar energy is not more than 6% per year.
  • If the heater must be installed in a roof where the inclination angle is less than 15 ° or greater than 32 °, a different apparatus must necessarily be used from the standard base of the device, similar to the one used in areas prone to cyclones , storms and strong winds.
  • For the safer installation of the solar water heater on sloping roofs it is necessary that the support base is placed in such a way that the water tank is up just one girder and in no case between two girders.
  • If the surface on which the device will be placed (sloping or flat) is not compatible with the standard equipment supplied with each device, a different equipment must be used which will be proposed, selected and placed by the installer, always in consultation with the customer.
  • When it comes to placing on a sloping roof, the base should be screwed with suitable screws and nuts onto the girders of the roof to ensure the correct and safe installation of the solar water heater.
  • In areas with heavy snowfall, particular attention should be paid so as not to accumulate snow behind the tank and check if the mountings of the standard equipment are capable of handling the weight of the expected snow.
  • The same applies to areas with heavy winds, hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes and severe storms. In these cases, the tank should be placed firmly on the roof and tied with additional metal straps.Both the solar water heater tubes and pipes of hot and cold water should be well insulated.
  • Particular attention must be paid in the filling and connection of closed-circuit. Only specialized technicians are able to connect and fill the closed-circuit. - Before filling the closed-circuit with the antifreeze liquid, the water tank must be filled entirely.
  • Before starting the installation of the solar water heater you should carefully read and observe all instructions described and illustrated in this site. After finished the installation of the device, clean the area where the task took place. Complete the warranty and mail the relevant coupons to LATO Industrial and Commercial SA and to the dealer respectively, in accordance with the security guidelines.
  • The constructor is not responsible for any damage caused to the product or to third parties due to incorrect installation.
