Solar connections

    When the plumber was connecting my dual coil tank to the gas boiler he connected it to the solar connection on the tank and left the solar connections blanked off. The solar are on the bottom and boiler are on the top. I am getting in solar shortly, do I need to change them around?

    Solar loop must be on the bottom.

    Reason one is to obtain max efficency from the solar, and also some coils are not suitable for solar, so if the tank is solar compatible, the bottom coil will be it.

    Hello Snyper, on the basis of some coils not been compatible, could you elaborate please?

    Reason being that I am working on a bit of a DIY personal system (in my head) at present.
