Need to have hot water in the morning!!? Also, does it have to be portable?
Then this handy DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project is for you to make a Solar Water Heater. This is very similar to using sunlight to distill water (Deer, 2013, February 5) or make a solar foundry (Deer, 2013, April 16) using a Fresnel lens.
However the gear required is a lot different as this video explains
- 50″ Copper tubing
- Black paint
- Tower clips
- 20″ by 20″ board
- 27″ by 27″ plyboard
- 2 23 1/8″ lengths of lumber
- Two 20 1/8″ lengths of lumber
- Pipe to hose garden adapter
- 10 Countersunk screw
You basically will follow the instructions as show in the video and build the Water Heater. It produces a sustained temperature of 73.8889 C (165 F) at a flow rate of 0.5 gallon per minute.
This is more than sufficient to produce hot water using the sun for any application on a given sunny day.
Sharing is caring so share this with your friends who need a portable water heater!
