There is a another good Forum run by Navitron

http://www.navitron.org.uk/forum/

who import Chinese vacuum tubes and flat plate solar collectors. They supply diy parts too. You may be able to buy the complete kit 20 or 30 tubes, control unit, cylinder, pump etc etc for less than £1500.

You may see some of my posts (OmidKnight) on there under Solar Data - I quite often used to post temperature readings from my system that also heated a radiator in the house as early in the year as late January.

I stopped work about 3 years ago now so not really up to date with the latest technology. There are however many on the Forum there willing to advise both pro and DIYer`s.

Having recently moved from a det. 3/4 bed bungalow with 1/4 acre plot, 2 double garages etc etc Now in a cosy new build fishermans cottage replica mid terrace with a combi boiler - so no plans for solar heating here.

Thanks Ria

Solartwin is a very good system. If they still use plastic pipes in a drain-down direct system there used to be various guidelines as legionella may be a risk.

Navitron DIY prices may be found here

Had a look at the site and find it full of good information.

I think I would prefer to have this equipment supplied and fitted rather than DIY because while I believe I could manage it I can see several problems coming up that I wouldnt want to do, it would take me too long to complete the job

Great site and thanks for that
