Fochville Gym gets two 300-litre solar water heater systems
Fochville - Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp Solahart dealers Lourens de Jongh and Ryno Jansen recently installed two 300-litre solar water heater systems at the Fochville Gym. The construction of the gym was based on green building principles. The roof was constructed in order to catch and divert rainwater to a tank for use in the swimming pool. The building also relies on natural ventilation and a sliding roof to keep it cool.
The addition of the two 300-litre solar water heater systems not only increased the green status of this building, but also adds to the convenience of having a constant supply of hot water for its users, with remarkable savings on water heating costs. The gym opened for business in January 2011.
