Commencement of a HYBRID Solar Heating for Swimming Pool, UFH and Hot Water with ASHP
Our client dug the trenches for us, pool plant in background.
Paul helping Jamie insulate the pipes. We were not happy with the solution provided to us by a supplier so we devised an innovative new solar piping run for long distances.
We had to create a 100m run of solar/heat pump pipe, across an underneath greenhouse land. This is a major engineering job!
We like these valves with MI and FI ends, 1", able to directly fit solar 1"
couplings to go to stainless steel pipe. This type of pipe will withstand high temperatures should there be a failure of the system.

|Evening sets in. Time to go home.|
Certain bits of equipment such as the duct from France had not been delivered by Easter - the deadline for heated water - so we piped up over land temporarily.
Solar energy, snaking its way through the grass, like a subversive oil line.
Fionn, Renewable Energy Engineer, suffering in the high heat of Thursday 21st April, half way through the day and just a few hours to the switch on deadline.
Completed, Dave, Tech Manager and Fionn, commission the system electrically.
