Dux Hot Water: A Proud Tradition Since 1915
Dux water heaters have been heating water for Australians since 1915, when the Middleton family decided on the name Dux, meaning best, for its new range of electric water heaters for showers and baths.
By 1940, their company, Dux Heaters Pty Limited, had developed its first instantaneous water heater, a ceramic unit. In 1960 it added copper roof tanks to its range, which then covered bath and shower heaters, instantaneous bath and shower heaters and instantaneous water heaters.

In 1964, Dux introduced its first mains pressure units to meet the needs of the high rise housing which was becoming increasingly popular.
The original Dux mains pressure units were galvanised. These were followed by the Dux Cusilmatic, made from a bronze and copper alloy. These units were replaced by steel tanks with copper lining, and then by ones with a glazed, vitreous enamel finish, some of which still operate today.
While the company has grown substantially since these early days, the words of that original motto still apply. Today as part of the GWA International Limited group of household brand names including Caroma, Sebel, Dorf Clark and Rover, Dux is marketed throughout Australia and overseas.
Dux is committed to producing high quality products and to the on-going development of new products. Since 1989, all its product research and manufacture has been carried out at modern facilities in the New South Wales town of Moss Vale.
Today, Dux are leading the field with breakthrough products such as the Airoheat Subzero heat pump solar hot water system, and Enviro Friendly are proud to offer them to or customers.

The Dux Solar Hot Water Range
Sunpro Split system, electric boost.
This Dux model is ideal when you want the lowest-profile, lowest weight on your roof.
The electric booster keeps the price of the system down, and backs up the system when the sun can’t do all of the job.
Some of the features are…
- High performance black chrome selective surface collectors as standard
- Multi-temperature sensor vitreous enamel tank configuration
- Patented Hotlogic® processor that constantly searches for and switches to the cheapest available energy source
- Mid height element boosting for hot water in times of low solar gain
Sunpro Split system, gas boost.
This Dux model has the same stylish, low profile as the electric split model, but adds the efficiency of gas boosting.
As always, while a gas-boosted solar system costs more to buy and install, it costs less to run for those on town gas.
The larger your family, the larger your use of hot water, the more money you’ll save with the gas-boosted model.
- Gas boosted solar is one of the most environmentally friendly domestic hot water solutions available.
- High performance black chrome selective surface collectors as standard
- Flexible continuous flow mounting options – on a wall or a tank allowing for greater installation flexibility (comes with mounting bracket)
- Reduced footprint for better side access, particularly for smaller blocks
