Unpressurised Drain Back

At peak times, up to 80% of usable solar energy can be transformed into domestic heat. Over the year, Daikin solar thermal systems can provide up to 60% of the hot water needs for an average household.  In combination with solar collectors, Daikin heating products maximise the use of renewable free energy from the environment, therefore delivering highest energy utilisation and very low environmental impact.*Download technical specification* [938,28 Kb]

Drainback systems

Drainback systems, for use with high temperature heat pump, are available in packs of one, two, three, four or five panels, in horizontal or vertical orientation. They are also available for profiled or slate type tiles for red or anthracite roof.

The solar collectors are only filled with water when enough heat is provided by the sun.  In this case, pumps in both the control unit and the pump unit switch on and fill the collectors with water from the thermal store in less than a minute.
