Mild steel solar hot water tanks have a sacrificial anode in them to reduce the water corrosion on the vitreous glass lining within. Before that anode is spent, it needs to be replaced or the lining and tank begins to corrode. Replacement is required about every five years depending on the water quality and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

What causes degradation to solar water heaters? Mild steel solar hot water tanks have a sacrificial anode in them to reduce the water corrosion on the vitreous glass lining within. Before that anode is spent, it needs to be replaced or the lining and tank begins to corrode. Replacement is required about every five years depending on the water quality and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Degradation and damage to panels can happen as a result of severe weather, as well as the usual wear-and-tear of life in our varied climate. The fierce assault of the summer sun, the heavy rainfall we experience in winter, and the strong winds that blow in from the coast all take their toll on the functionality of your solar hot water system. The investment you made to reduce your energy bill, as well as your carbon footprint, can quickly eat into your savings if a faulty panel or corroded tank is left too long unchecked.
