SDO: CSA: CSA Standards
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This Standard specifies requirements for the installation of packaged solar domestic hot water (SDHW) systems that meet the requirements of the CSA F379 Series.
Note: SDHW systems include those designed to
(a) provide hot water in the absence of an auxiliary water heater;
(b) preheat water for a stand-alone gas, propane, electric, or oil water heater;
(c) use gas, propane, electricity, solid fuels, or oil for auxiliary water heating in an integrated fashion; and
(d) use liquid/liquid or boiling/condensing heat transfer between the solar collectors and potable water.
This Standard does not apply to space heating equipment or to collectors designed to form part of a building's load bearing structure.
The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. Any values given in parentheses are for information only.
In CSA Standards, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and "can" is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
