Good for you! I surely wish my Sweetie would consider rigging up some hot water collectors!

Hi Demi, We have the solar water heating now, hey what a blast, hot water for free lol. We have decided to splash out on a 120 ltr bioler to relpace the electric 80 ltr one. Accoring to the chap it will work with the wood burner and the solar water array, lets see!!!

How is going in Macedonia? I will be back on the forum now for the winter, pretty much done verything that I need to here, although there is still the animals, wood to chop, wine to fiddle with, etc lol

You cannot beat the good feeling of having a shower which is not only free but carbon free

Way to go! We got our solar hot water hooked up last spring. I can't believe how little sunlight it takes to run it. It will run even on an overcast day, as long as it's not a heavy, dark overcast.
