Solar systems are all the rage. For maximum efficiency, of course, they must be perfectly clean. With the help of water fed pole systems combined with pure water you not only ensure perfect cleanliness, but also a considerable increase in efficiency and optimum results in the production of energy.

The cleaning of photovoltaic systems is not so easy. First of all, they are difficult to reach on the rooftops. Secondly, they are regularly heavily soiled due to daily traffic, and the dust from industrial plants and farmland. Since the dirty surface inevitably leads to a loss of yield, regular cleaning is required. Important: the use of normal tap water is not indicated here, since the performance of solar systems is also reduced by limescale spots.

The right equipment does the job

For the efficient cleaning of solar systems, the use of pure water in combination with water fed pole systems is well worthwhile.
Pure water is produced from "normal" tap water, when all minerals such as magnesium, iron or limescale are removed. Although these substances are invisible to the naked eye, they appear as unsightly marks when the cleaned surface dries. With the HiFlo RO solar filter you have a hard working and compact machine that filters the unwanted substances from the water. With a water tank of 750 litres, the HydroPower RO XXL provides maximum flexibility in the transport and production of pure water, while it is also completely self-sufficient. The practical trailer is ideal for cleaning large photovoltaic systems, or for work on remote solar fields where there is no water connection nearby. Two people can use it at the same time - therefore the sometimes difficult to access photovoltaic systems can be cleaned even faster.

With water fed pole systems, solar systems can be easily cleaned from the ground without climbing or lifting. They are adjustable to the required length and feed water to the very top. The brush at the end of the pole removes coarse dirt, which is simply washed away by the water from the integrated nozzles. The gentle bristles clean with maximum efficiency, without scratching the sensitive solar systems. Practical: With the swaying movement, you do not even have to use much energy in solar cleaning.

The most common sources of error when working with pure water

It is a fact: the use of pure water has revolutionized window cleaning and brings about significant time and cost savings – at least when used correctly.
