  1. Hi nico1 Good to hear from you and that you have learned a valuable lesson. Just to clarify the output from your previous system. I believe you can draw the high current if you have a combined generator or a another constant power source (pv panels are not constant eg: clouds etc.) that is combined with the mains input, however as I said you cannot draw the full power from the mains input as you are limited to the specified value of the inverter. This is only true if the specific inverter allows for this function.
  2. Hi Gourish I have a look at the specs and they look good. For my personal use my ph has always been a problem as my ph is always below 6.5 and I add calcite after 1st stage initial filtering. As far as cost effective goes I cannot see it. At the Filtershop it goes for R3375.00 a 25kg bag. A 1054 FRP vessel will require 2 bags. R6750.00 to fill a 1x FRP vessel is out of my league. I only use a venturi aerated Clinobrite in all my stages and is not ph reliant at R320.00 a 25kg bag that makes it more than 10x less expensive to do the same job however you might need a extra stage of filtering.
  3. Hi The Asute switch works with the Smart life and CBI Home app and not with the eWeLink app.
  4. Hi I guess this a battery cable. In the case you cannot get anyone with a large crimper to help you. This not the best method however it works as an alternative. Strip the wire and fit the lug. Put the lug with the wire in a vice and close vice tightly. This will flatten the lug which is not the best. Pull on the wire to check and if a little loose, repeat. You can also put a screw on the side of lug and tighten after the first attempt to put an indentation in the lug to stop the wire from coming loose Something to keep in mind. Loose or bad connections with large amounts of current is bad news.
  5. Hi I now have a good understanding of passthrough however I do believe there are many members who do not and I do not see it explained well anywhere. The posts give a good insight of how passthrough works. The bottom line that the inverter without a generator or pv will only generate the rated KW and will trip out if used incorrectly to supply a load exceeding the rated KW. I would think most users including myself use the inverter (Sunsynk 8KW) for load shedding and to minimize grid use. The passthrough function would have to monitored well for smooth changeover when no grid is available.
  6. Hi I understand that however a inverter is also for load shedding and cannot sustain 90A loads as suggested.
  7. Hi I agree that that is from three sources however should there be no power from mains or pv the battery or inverter cannot sustain that power and therefor this setup would not be normal and the current is just on about 41amps which is about the about the max limit of the inverter not 90amps.Some members think that would be able to pass through the 90A from mains as I have had this discussion in other posts. A member had bought a 2KW inverter to handle 60A amps because of the passthrough spec.
  8. Hi Achmat Your picture shows exactly what I said max of about 10Kw which is 5Kw battery+ 5Kw Load 220v x (24A +24A). The ups to me only supports excess power and will be limited. The explanation you have given defies the limitation of the inverter and would be in alarm mode if you draw that amount of current.
  9. Hi Achmed Please explain what you mean by 35A or 90A on a 5KW or 8Kw Sunsynk inverter . Is this all to load utilities? To me If you pass through 90A on a 8kw inverter to the load and the mains fail it would mean about 450A draw from the battery if it is all to the utilities or am I confused. To me passthrough for the 8KW would mean battery max charge of about 38A and max load of about 38A not a output load to utilities and not 90A to utilities. To me passthrough for the 5KW would mean battery max charge of about 24A and max load of about 24A not a output load to utilities and not 35A to utilities.
  10. Hi You have tested everything as best you can. Personally I would not purchase the parallel kits until I was sure that those boards had the problem as that would be +R2000 waist if it is not the problem. I would wait to see if anyone on the forum can help you to target the faulty board.
  11. Hi What size are you referring to physical or Kw ? You can find all you need to know from the Hubble website. Just download or just look at the specifications of each battery. https://www.hubblelithium.co.za/
  12. Hi I use some wifi cameras on my property. You say you want the camera on the corner of the plot. I am not sure if it is the 150m spot. That distance seems pretty far for a wifi camera and the first thing I would suggest that you find out or test the camera if it will be in range for your wifi. As far as I know 150m would be out of range for most cameras even at line of sight.
  13. Hi The phone number for the Solaredge Storedge inverter enquiries in South Africa is +27 0800 982 659 according to their documentation.
  14. Hi PJZ790 I am attaching values given by Full Circle Solar which you can use for all Hubble batteries.Hubble-Lithium-charge-settings.pdf Charging current is not given. I personally would no charge less than 50amps. I hope this will help you.
  15. Hi I suppose If you let all the water go through the black pipe the flow will be such that there will be very little heat transfer because the water flow will be too much and the water will not have time to heat up and only the hot water initially in the pipe will have any effect. In some some solar geysers the water only flows when the is a a few degrees difference and the pumps are very small.
