This week, our team ventured to Esk to complete an unusual install - instead of mounting the solar hot water system on the customer's roof, it was ground mounted. This type of installation is usually seen in older homes where the roof is unable to support the weight of the system.

I'm writing on behalf of my father who had a solar heater installed today by James and the boys of Bar Plumbing. He couldn't be more happy with the service and workmanship of the team. Totally professional and courteous. He would highly recommend the Bar plumbing team to anyone thinking of getting a new solar hotwater system installed.

Geckos, ants, lizards and other pests can easily get into spots where they shouldn't and cause a lot of damage! This gecko shorted out a PC board on a solar hot water system. Geckos in particular, are notorious for getting into hot water systems, air conditioning units, solar inverters and other electrical units costing you a small fortune! It's a good idea to call your local pest control expert and discuss ways to protect your valuable assets!
