Re: Solar heating element for water heater

Here's something for the OP to by and test. Let us know how it works. If your still having that crap wx that I experienced on the 16th on Novemeber at SFO, then it's going to be a long winter...

Once you get further south, hot water and all that will be a distant memory...we had to put t shirts over the solar showers in Mexico..way to hot..

PS-I found that a far better use for the excess power in my system is to make ICE! All afternoon making cold drinks cold beer, huge ice cubes for gin and tonics..I think this will become more apparent as you move to warmer climes..Nobody ever asked me for a cup of hot water..
