Code of Practice for Manufacture and Installation of Solar Water Heating Systems in New Zealand (2004)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 10, 2010

This Code of Practice was published by the New Zealand Solar Industries Association (SIA) to provide guidance to manufacturers, suppliers, and purchasers of solar hot water systems on manufacturing and installation standards to be observed in New Zealand, especially for household installations.

The code is organised in different chapters: introduction about solar hot water systems; main components of solar water heating system construction; procedures for installers; preliminary site checks and performance testing of collectors and systems. The document also provides a listing of relevant standards and a template application for building consent to use for the installation of solar water heating systems.
