We have just fitted the solar tanks below the new Spa development. This has cost over £25K in costs and should be enough accumulation tank volume wise for around 100m2 of Solar panels on the roof of either the restaurant or the main roof when we finally develop the 4th floor. These tanks have had to be specially designed due to the space they are fitting in as they will essentially be under ground when fitted and we do not want to be returning to them at a later date. I seems that the real cost has been the Solar heating control mechanism at some £6,000!
Why fit them now? Well we need to develop the Spa Treatements business and sometimes you have to buy the cart before the horse!
