Several years ago, we installed a wood fired boiler in our home. Our plumber suggested using a larger storage tank, and recommended the Buderus Logalux SM400 tank, which I've since learned is intended to be used with, but may be used without, solar flat plate hot water collectors. Buderus made the Logasol SKS 4.0-s flat plate collectors, and an associated "solar pump station" or "solar station", and said components can be connected to the lower internal coil within the SM400 tank.
So, I kept my eye out for some solar collectors, hoping to add this functionality to our system. This past winter, I found a pair of collectors, and associated pump station, in nearly new, never used condition, and purchased them for next to nothing from a plumber who had intended to mount them for a customer but who abandoned the project.
Now, I'm eager to install, but am finding that Buderus discontinued this line of products, and they have NOTHING available, at least here in the USA. Stunning to me though it may be, I haven't given up hope. Perhaps someone on this forum can point me in the direction of parts for this system? Are parts still available in Europe?
Of most interest to me is obtaining the mounting kit for attaching to a roof. My research indicates that Buderus made two different mounting kits for these collectors, one intended for sloped roof installation, and the other for flat, or nearly flat, roof installation. As I'm still in the process of selecting where to mount the collectors, I'm not yet sure which style of mounting kit will be best.
Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
