We stock and supply all the major solar hot water system brands, makes and models.
In Australia, with our temperate climate and sunny weather, it makes sense to utilise what Mother Nature provides free of charge to heat your hot water. By using solar energy, you pay less than a conventional electric or gas hot water system. Not only is that more money in your pocket, but significantly reduces your global impact and greenhouse emissions. It’s a win-win on all accounts!
At Cheapa Hot Water, we are authorised solar hot water system installers for the major brands including Rheem, Solahart and Apricus. Our solar systems are competitively priced because we purchase large quantities direct from the manufacturers – a saving we can pass on to our customers.

Cheapa Hot Water now part of the Rheem Solar Specialist Network
In 2016, Rheem Australia launched the Rheem Solar Specialist Network. The new nework is a result of the integration of the Solar Edwards business into Rheem. The merge combines the trusted Rheem brand with the products and expertise of a specialised group of trained, dedicated solar specialists like Cheapa Hot Water who offer high level solar water heater advice and service.
The creation of this specialist network, formerly known as the Edwards Dealer Network, is in response to some significant changes in the industry, particularly over the past five years. It also draws on the vast experience and expertise that Rheem Australia has developed in solar water heating.
Rheem Solar Specialist Network combines the strength of Rheem with the Edwards heritage to offer an expanded range of roof-mounted and ground systems, including a unique rooftop range of stainless steel tanks available in a range of COLORBOND® colours.;
This combined approach gives consumers the confidence of knowing that they are choosing product made by Australia’s number one brand in hot water. It’s supported by both the Rheem solar specialists and the large service network that Rheem operates around the country.
In addition, the new specialist network is well placed to address the changing market and householder needs. With the certainty of ongoing high gas and electricity prices, there will continue to be a strong solar market, and the increasing complexity of water heating products as demand for greater energy efficiency increases.
Rheem is ready to address these needs and tackle them head on. It is also committed to investing in local research and development to deliver new, Australian made higher efficiency renewable products at lower running costs for consumers.
