In remote areas of Australia the extreme climatic conditions and the high salt content of the water has led to the development of a plastic solar water heater. This system overcomes problems experienced in commercial, metallic units which suffer from blockages, breakages and ruptures due to freezing. The plastic design is also modular and is easy to assemble on site thus reducing transport costs.
