Hot Water DIY KIT

(1 customer review)

This D.I.Y. Kit is an economical way to reduce your power bill by using solar panels and a hybrid hot water controller to heat your water. Download the installation guide for more information on hooking up the panels and controller.


NOTICE: 10-14 Day Lead Time



A great solar D.I.Y. kit to Greatly reduce if not eliminate the cost to heat your water and dependence on the grid. The Solar Hybrid Hot Water Controller has a CPU specially programmed for Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and continually adjusts during the day to get the most power from the Solar Panels. MPPT is especially needed in the mornings, afternoons or cloudy days to keep the most power pumping into the heating element at all times. You can try hooking up your solar panels direct, but without MPPT you will get little heat for your investment and have other problems.

    Looks like a great product. I have all the parts and most are installed but ……my hot water heater has no hole for element in the bottom. Had a plug so after draining it (82gallons) pulled the plug and solid steel. I guess it will delay my installation but i am ready when i get the tank replaced. It was easy to set up; looking forward to getting it working.
