The storage cylinders for all Edwards roof-mounted solar water heaters by Edwards are stainless steel. Stainless steel acts as a natural barrier to corrosion. Therefore, Edwards stainless steel solar hot water systems do not require a sacrificial anode and are virtually maintenance free. On the other hand, competitors mild steel cylinders with vitreous glass lining are prone to corrosion once the anode has been mostly consumed.
Mild steel cylinders can also corrode from the outside as well as from the inside.
Because of the superior qualities of the Edwards stainless steel solar water heaters our award winning performance has earned independent recognition, re-affirming Edwards leadership in solar hot water technology.

The outer casing of Edwards storage tanks is constructed from weatherproof COLORBOND® steel. Edwards offer a choice of seven (7) modern COLORBOND® steel colours with their roof mounted range. This colour choice allows you to choose a system that will complement your roof and blend with your homes aesthetics. All this at no additional cost!
An Edwards stainless steel solar hot water system is a good environmental and financial investment. It can significantly reduce fossil fuel energy use and consequent pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. A fact recognised by some State Governments across Australia who have banned the use of electric hot water systems in new homes. Not only are you helping the environment by installing an Edwards stainless steel solar hot water system, you will also save heaps on your household energy costs.
Which system you choose will depend on where you live, which way your home faces and even the pitch of your roof. So it's important to talk to your local Edwards dealer about the Solar Edwards Hot water system which is ideal for you.
There will be days during the year when your solar system doesn't receive sufficient energy from the sun to provide all the hot water you need. Edwards gives you the option to have either an in tank electric element booster or a gas in-line continuous flow boosting unit. The choice is yours; ask your local Solar Edwards dealer which option would be best suited to you.
