BlazingTubes installations take just one day to complete
The number of BlazingTubes units needed depends on the number of persons in a household. Two BlazingTubes units are ordinarily installed for a family of 3-4 and will provide up to 90% of the hot water consumed. These BlazingTubes units are simply fastened to the roof (using stainless steel bolts) and plumbed in series with the existing electric or gas water heater, which still act as backup heaters on rainy days. Depending on the home, the BlazingTubes units can be installed “flush” with the appropriate pitched roof, or mounted on aluminum angle frame when the roof is flat. Copper piping is used exclusively with the hot lines insulated entirely. A thermometer is provided to view the solar heated water temperature and a mixing valve ensures protection from scalding temperatures BlazingTubes installations take just one day to complete, so hot water is available from the first night.
