  1. Thank you for your feedback. I purchased my inverter from a solar supplier in Germiston. Unfortunately he wont say who the supplier is. I am giving him until this afternoon for feedback. Where are the guys whos email address you posted located? thanks again
  2. Hi few months ago i installed a Growatt inverter for my 12 335watt panels. 4 strings of 3. I have also connected via dc surge protection as well as earth leakages on the AC side. Last week fault code (9) comes up with no AC output. Supplier says that the inverter is burnt but it starts up as normal and the only issue is the fault code. i have done a reset, disconnected the batteries etc. Any reason why this could happen, the supplier is not giving me any feedback. Usually they push the blame to the owner. unfortunately i do not have a COC as i have done the installation by myself. Any advise would be appreciated.
  3. contact city power The call centre operates 24/7 365 days a year on 0860 56 28 74 or 0860-JOBURG. Best of luck
  4. Question- does have two geysers Does having two geysers in series reduce the water pressure in by any chance?
  5. Thank you for the feedback. Much appreciated. i have changed to 3 panels in series thereafter parallel x 4 strings and the inverter seems to be fine. please refer to the label on the side of the inverter. The supplier advised that this is a low voltage inverter but the amp and input rating is different to the image you shared.
  6. Hi Someone advised me to connect 3 strings of 4 panels each in series then parallel. my inverter fault (13) comes on. Is this the incorrect way to wire up. Fault is there even when i unplug two strings? what is recommended to wire up the panels on this inverter? Current set up 12 x 335watt panels 48 volt battery set up.
  7. Hi Will i be able to add my swimming pool pump during the day onto my solar set up below. Note that i have a 5kva Growatt inverter. only the refrigerator and tv runs most of the day. will the load be comfortable to run on my inverter or must i add more panels?
  8. Hi All some changes to the setup. I have added another 2 panels. I have found out that the batteries are not deep cycle but high cycle. I want to add another two but sceptical now. Also taking into consideration that a friend has the same batteries without any issues. 4 X 325W Poly solar panels from Vital Sat solar Klopperpark Barbara road Isando. 063 133 4022 (R1800 each) 4 x Enertec 105AH 12 volts high cycle batteries from a guy called Barry 083 267 4585 (R1850 each) Battery world in Wynberg just outside Alexandra. 1 x 5kva inverter and charge controller from a friend. . any advice will be appreciated.
