Fireball Systems for Freeze Conditions
All systems are designed to be installed with existing
or added standard water heating tanks. No tanks are included with
these system prices. In general, systems should be sized to have a minimum
of 1 gallon of storage per sq. / ft. of collector area. Systems
1, 2 and 3 are open-loop systems, meaning that they heat the water that
is used throughout the house. Systems 4 and 5 are closed-loop glycol
systems with heat exchangers, which is essential in areas that freeze.
All Kits come with:
Complete Freeze Protection
System 4: (110 Volt AC) Complete Freeze Protection using “QUAD ROD” Pre soldered Thermosyphon Heat Exchanger with Expansion Tank, charging valves, Check valve, and all Connections (in place of "Quick Connect)
Note: 4 Collector system comes with 4' Quad Rod" and requires a minimum of an 80 Gallon side TPRV tank.
This system is for total collector freeze protection (-54F) in hard freeze areas. Requires that your existing storage tank have a side mounted pressure relief valve or that a storage tank with a side mounted pressure relief valve be added. Where a side TPRV tank is not available the tank can be raised 18" and the Quad Rod dropped to the floor to facilitate adequate thermosyphon action. If the electric elements are not needed, the Quad Rod can use the top element hole. Some soldering is required to connect the Quad Rod to the Tank. A 2 collector minimum is recommended.
For Photovoltaic Power to replace 110 Volt circulator and Differential
Controller with sensors (includes special PV Panel Mounting kit and 25'
of 12 volt HD wire, ElSid circulator for 1C and 2C or March or Hartel circulator
for 3C and 4C) : 21 Watt PV Panel (PV21): $220.00
HRPV: The Exciting “HotRod” solar water heater featuring the Butler Sun Systems “Wand” heat exchanger which fits in most existing or added standard water heaters. System includes 2 collectors, Wand (Specify 46” or 36”) Laing 12 volt PV pump and 21 watt PV panel, over temp/over pressure protection collector unit (OTP-1), all fittings and valves pre-fitted and soldered for an easy installation, full instructions, food grade Propylene glycol antifreeze, modified hardware and Operations manual are included. Some filing may be required to fit Wand in some tanks. Food grade “Sierra” or equal antifreeze not supplied.
Two Collector “HotRod” system with PV Powered Pump: (200142CWPV): $2,500.00
