Maintaining your solar system

While minimal maintenance will be required, regular checks of your solar system will ensure reliable performance (every 6 to 8 weeks).

Here are some pointers to maximise the life and performance of your solar system:

  • Clean the solar panel with a soft, damp cloth to remove any residue or dust film.
  • Check the mounting bracket is secure and the tilt angle is correct (if necessary, change the angle to accommodate the change in seasons).
  • Check all leads and connections are secure and undamaged by animals or vegetation.
  • Check electrolyte level in batteries.
  • Check the fence line for any faults using a Stafix Fault Finder. Clear any debris or vegetation that may be causing a short on the fence.
  • Check all exposed terminals and wires for evidence of corrosion from environmental conditions such as salt or chemicals. Tend to any connections that show early signs of corrosion.
