If you're keen on utilising solar energy then this hot water cylinder is for you. The coil design is created for use with closed loop solar systems. This is where the heat transfer fluid is circulated through the solar collector on the roof where it is heated by the sun. The heated transfer fluid then passes through the cylinder coil, which acts like a very large element to heat the water.
The unique coil spirals down and then wraps back up around itself creating a coil within a coil. It is located at the very bottom of the cylinder to allow for maximum heat to be transferred to the water in the cylinder.
The duplex stainless steel inner cylinder means it can be used is solar systems with high incoming water temperatures.
- indoor installations only
- mains and low pressure systems
- connection to closed loop solar systems
- residential and light commercial water heating applications
No suitable as a pool or spa heater, or for underfloor heating.
Rinnai cylinders are manufactured to suit most NZ council water supplies. However some supplies can have a detrimental effect on the cylinder, its operation and life expectancy. Stainless steel cylinders are not suitable for bore or tank water.
Single coil lower element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a closed loop solar system, where the homeowner wants constant hot water, whether there is solar gain or not.
Single coil dual element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a closed loop solar system, where the homeowner wants faster recovery times, and to reduce the risk of running out of hot water regardless of solar gain. Cylinder will have higher running costs.
Single coil upper element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a closed loop solar system, where the homeowner relies heavily on solar gain. Upper element is only used to quickly heat water in the top of the cylinder.
Inner, high grade duplex stainless steel
Outer, galvanised steel
CFC free polyurethane foam, compliant with NZ MEPS
Hold and cold connections ¾ " (20 mm)

No cylinder wrap required. All Rinnai cylinders meet the NZ Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS).
Four sizes to choose from. ABS plastic, an ideal rust resistant safe tray solution.
Two sizes to choose from. Galvanised safe trays are the traditional hard-wearing drip tray for New Zealand hot water cylinders.
