Posted By: richardelliotI have read (on the Owl website) that the diverters used for water heating can affect the accuracy of the monitors as well. No real point getting one if they aren't going to be accurate.
Posted By: SteamyTeaThe SMA has a relay built in that can be set to divert power I think.
Posted By: SteamyTeaI am not too sure of all the details, seem to remember someone saying that it can be activated once the modules are delivering an amp, so that would be somewhere around 100W. Most houses have close to that as a baseload, so not really loosing anything if that is the case.
Posted By: richardelliotAre any other forum members using power diverters to help heat their hot water? Is there a way to tell if the solar PV diversion is enough? Is there a recommended setting to have your boiler on as a 'top up'?
Posted By: richardelliotI'm a bit too scared to turn of the boiler in case I get in trouble with the family for cold showers.
Posted By: richardelliotOne thing I'm not sure how to measure is whether the power diverter is sufficient to meet our hot water needs.

In any event it will only be a couple of days of flak, soon forgotten, and justify it as teething issues understanding the system.http:///newforum/extensions/Vanillacons/smilies/standard/devil.gif" alt="" title="" >
