We had to have a hot water system that was powered by the sun because we are living off-grid. I investigated several flat panel and evacuated tube systems and liked the idea of hot bulb in the manifold rather than water flowing through small tubes. We knew that evacuated tubes were more efficient than flat panels so went for the Apricus system.

We haven’t been disappointed by the system and particularly like the level of support from a reputable NZ company. We are thoroughly chuffed with the system. If the system was to break down and you have no hot water you want to have somebody to turn to who will fix what you’ve bought and not try to sell you a replacement system.

We would recommend an Apricus system to other people, the controller is easy to understand and does what it is meant to do. It is a great system and has never let us down. We always have hot water, any season, regardless of much sun there is or not.
