Require an electric hot water heater in an emergency or upgrading your old electric hot water heater

Rheem’s electric Solar Ready water heater is designed for your regular and emergency water replacement needs. This smart electric water heater has solar water connections which are connected when upgraded to a solar water heater.

The addition of a unique electronic solar controller and the solar collectors then upgrades the water heater from electric to solar by installing slimline collectors to the roof and unique smart connect solar controller on the tank. This future proofs your investment. Available in Stainless Steel or Vitreous enamel tank system


To ensure you have hot water all year round a Rheem Loline® Solar Ready Stainless Steel or Vitreous Enamel water heater is available with either in-tank electric boosting or 6-Star 26L/min continuous flow gas boosting. Boosting is a back-up feature that provides hot water at times of low solar energy gain, such as during very cloudy or rainy weather, or during the colder months or periods of increased hot water demand.
