I seen elsewhere on the web this site had a kind of vacuum solar kettle for sale, but I can't see anywhere I can purchase?

Yes, you can buy them - they're 15. The only problem is that they can't be easily shipped, so you'll need to check whether there is a delivery to your area in the near future, or collect it from Monmouth or Oakham

Does anybody know if it is possible to order a Solar Kettle like this and just get it delivered as and when there is a delivery is going near my address, as I've heard that is what other people have been doing on other threads? So in theory I could order one and it may only be guaranteed delivery before next year.
Cheers, andy

Put where you are in your profile & people might be able to help you when they have an order coming in your area. Or if they are doing a collection.

Monmouth isn't that far from Swindon - might be worth checking if you're heading in this direction in the near future.

I've been advised, if I want a solar kettle, to look at the following links:

http://www.navitron.org.uk/product_detail.php?proID=127&catID=115

http://www.navitron.org.uk/product_detail.php?proID=128&catID=115

Essentially these are the replacement tubes, for the Navitron solar hot water panels.

Thanks for all your help.

Cheers, andy

I've noticed they have recently been quoting the capacity but, at 1 Cup (220ml), it doesn't seem like much!

Hope that helps,

We've got some mini tubes at around 0.4litres - in case they are of any interest?

Probably not - as they're intended to be part of a mini demonstration panel for installers to use for marketing. But we get spares in, in case of breakage, and we can get more in to sell as individual items, if required.
