My father-in-law was persuaded to fit water heating solar panels, when they were fitted the immersion heater in the cistern was removed, so unless central heating is running it is unlikely to hit 60 degs C. They seem to have used the old cistern not the new type with very good heat exchangers and hot water at mains pressure.

House is up for sale, no one has picked up on shower water is from the cistern as yet, is it a problem?

I'd be more concerned about the contract with the solar panel company. Very often they own the panels on a leasehold arrangement and hold a charge over the property.

I have heard of that for electric solar panels, but this is about water heating solar panels, is it the same "rules"

What make of solar panels are these?

I have never heard of any system where the tap water goes through the panels.

Usually the panel fluid is pumped around the solar circuit and heats the hot water through a coil in the cylinder, the same as an normal indirect heating system.
