DIY Solar Thermal Water Heater. Homemade "COPPER PIPE" Solar Water Heater! Easy DIY. video includes full instructions on how to build it (w/materials list). super hot water fast. reaches temps at or above 150F with air temps from high 40's to low 50's. a few features of the panel: full 1/2" hard copper pipe (type L). hooks to a standard water tap/garden hose. slim portable design (at only 2" thick) and is very rugged and durable (built with 2x2's and 1/2" plywood). multiple panels can be hooked together for additional capacity and extras can be easily added; water flow valves, temp sensors, timers etc... couple of final thoughts. make sure to use type L copper (rated 0-400F 986psi). other choice is type M (only rated 100-150F) and will not hold up to temperature extremes. the smaller "internal board" is very important to the design - for a few reasons. 1.) it allows for the pipe to lay essentially flat inside of collector (because all the connection points are up in the air). 2.) it holds the pipe at the right height so it enters and exits thru the 3/4" hole in the 2x2. 3.) it allows for the pipe to easily be removed from the collector (if extra work needs to be done on any of the solder joints - re-solder etc.) btw if you've never soldered pipe before - it's very easy to learn. just watch a couple of youtube vids on it and practice a few connections on a small or scrap piece before starting project. lastly, to secure the glass into the frame, just use a bead of silicone caulk around the edge and drop the glass in. songs are from youtubes "copyright free" library. song titles...hemispheres and mumbai effect

DIY Solar Water Heater. A Homemade "flat panel" COPPER COIL Solar Water Heater. Easy DIY. Full Instructions. super hot temps (sustained at 165F+). fast hot water. no electricity needed. easily hooks up to standard water tap/garden hose. reaches temps well over 150F (water pasteurization temp) so it works to clear/kill any pathogens (if a non-municipal source is used). it's super portable so it's good for camping/off-grid/emergency as well as everyday use. couple of notes: water flow rate verified with a measuring cup and a stopwatch. (roughly 1 oz. of hot water every 1 to 1.5 seconds and scaled up - one gallon every 2-3 minutes or 20-30 gallons per hour). about the copper tubing: a 50 foot roll of tubing is much cheaper than smaller rolls connected. *only $24.95 for 50 ft (but $17 for a 20 ft roll and $10 for a 10 ft roll). the glass is just standard window glass and the paint is flat black. it's thin flat design allows it to be easily stored in a closet, under the bed etc... *"seal it" according to your climate conditions and whether you plan to leave it outside. UPDATE: (06/01/2018)… if interested, here’s a youtube video link to my other (most current) copper coil water heater. It’s of a similar design but is lined with aluminum sheeting and uses larger diameter coil. https://youtu.be/btQtPQpUf90

The quest for hot water does not come easy for off grid living. With summer just around the corner, decided to take a stab at making a hot water heater. For this project, scavenged 3/4" pipe, a few 3/4" Elbows and a single pane window for the basic frame. The overall plan was to make like a manifold for the cold water to come in the bottom and the naturally flow out the top into a makeshift hot water tank. Just in case, I will use a small DC pump that can help move the water. The single pane window with a frame was perfect. Originally came from last years DIY solar panel project. The manifold was sized to fit within the edges of the window. In another video, a cedar box will be made with 1"x 8" lumber and painted black. Note: PVC pipe is rated up to 140 degrees F. (Water boils at 212 degrees) Depending on you location of the Solar Water Heater, might want to use CPVC instead of PVC. Copper pipe would be idea, but often it's difficult to obtain. (High sought after by scrappers)

This is how I made a water heater from an old gas hot water service and converted it to run on waste oil instead of gas. Please see my other vids for Burner construction and running waste oil burners. I have used this setup as shown on other vids when my electric hot water heater failed. This heater setup has fast heat up and can be set to keep pace with the demands of a normal shower hot water requirement. The system could easily be set up in an off grid or prepper type location as it only needs a small amount of 12V power to supply the car blower I used here. The burner runs on any waste oil and is gravity fed without the need for Nozzles, pumps or compressors. As well as providing Domestic hot water, the output can also be used in a home heating system which is what I plan to set up for my home this winter. It could also be used for an outdoor shower, to heat water for animal troughs, to heat a spa or small swimming pool or other uses to replace gas or electric how water heating. Please see my channel for other heating, burner and metal Melting Vids.

Solar water heater - Passive breadbox - build and install. Preheats water before the water goes to the regular water heater. Plans/design by Jeff Tiller. No pumps or moving parts other than valves and shutters. In the event of leaks or freezes in the solar water heater, the solar system can be bypassed and just use the regular system to heat water. There was no eligible tax refund for this system in the state of Georgia in 2012. Only federal refund of 30% as shown in the video which was nice. No claim on the temp of the water as I only have a thermometer that reads air temp in the box and the tanks were painted with 'solar' paint to help keep the heat in the tanks. Air temp in the box routinely (April - October) goes to 140 degrees on sunny days, especially when sunny between 10 - 2 o'clock. Since two tanks in the box, there is more hot water than a single 40 gallon tank, but just not as high a temperature. This works well with a 50 gallon Jacuzzi. There is a goodly amount of hot water available on sunny days. This can be seen in that the box starting out at 140 degrees or more before the bath is still above 100 degrees after a 50 gallon plus jacuzzi bath.

READ IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW: I built a solar water heating system. In this video I show you how I built the water heating solar panels. My current system of twenty panels have the capability to collect 500,000 BTU per sunny day. typically I collect about 300,000 BTU, Still that is enough to easily heat our house for a day The panels cost about $450 to $500 each to build. Still that is much cheeper than buying them off the open market. UPDATE: The second set of solar panels has been plagued with leaks. The joints between the header and the 1/4 I/D tubing keeps springing leaks. I do not know why this set keeps leaking, and the first set (after three years of use), has not. For a DESIGN IMPROVEMENT I now wrap rings of 8 or 10 guage copper house wire around the joints before soldering. This holds a fillet of solder at each of the joints and dramatically decreases the leakage opportunity. I plan to make a video of this improvment when I get time.

Homemade Solar Air Heater! - The "Screen Absorber" Solar Air Heater!. Easy DIY. Produces temps near 140F (with outdoor air in the mid 40's). design of collector is similar to the steel can/aluminum can solar air heater but uses a "screen absorber plate" instead of the cans. video is a full tutorial with step by step instructions. how it works: outside air enters the collector at the bottom through several entrance vents. it then raises up through the collector (passing over, under and through the screen absorber plate along the way. when it reaches the top it's pulled out by a small fan through an exit vent. bottom piece of internal frame acts as a baffle which helps to spread out the airflow. short list of item sizes/dimensions: outer frame: One (1x4) cut down into Two 33 3/4" pieces and Two 20 1/4" pieces. inner frame: One (2x2) cut down into Two 26" pieces and Two 15" pieces. glass (plexi-Glas) used is 20" by 32" (always build your collector around the glass you have available). dimension of backing 33 3/4" by 21 3/4". hardware used: Twelve #8 3/4" wood screws for the backing. Eight #8 1 3/4" wood screws for the outer frame. Four #12 2 1/2" wood screws for the internal frame. vent tube is a 3" dryer hose (expands up to 8 feet). collector is painted with flat black paint. seal up the collector appropriately to match your local climate conditions (using weather stripping, caulk etc.). final thoughts... experiments suggest that a "dual layer" screen absorber plate works the best (single layer and triple layers of screen tend to produce slightly lower temps). *i recommend keeping the entrance vent "cutouts". those can be reinserted to adjust airflow (which could potentially raise/lower output temps - will do additional experiments). i experimented with putting the screen absorber at an angle inside collector but angling it did not produce higher temps. (*note that using no screen at all (just a black box) will significantly reduce output temps - they dropped down an average of 20-30F (couldn't get above 109.5F without the screen assembly)

Our climate is changing so it is ever more important to manage heating and cooling in your home. This passive heater will save you money, too! Build this window heater that uses the suns energy to heat your home or garage in the winter. No more drilling holes through the wall or rigging power hungry fans to blow air through your solar heater. This heater uses a thermosiphon effect to pull in room temperature (cold) air as it expels hot air into the room.

solar air heater. solar air heat collector. simple to make. solar panel runs blower fan. no 'grid power' or batteries needed! hi temps. 150F (65.55C) and higher. great for space heating. cost effective way to heat home, garage, shed, greenhouse etc... solar heated air can reduce the heating load during the daytime, thereby reducing your power bill (and carbon footprint). works great in cool and sunny conditions. simply face it towards the sun (south in northern hemisphere) and duct it into desired building space. this 'space heater' will heat a room and assist in heating house. expand it to size. DIMENSIONS: glass/plexi-glass - 18" by 24". external diameter of cardboard - 18" by 24". cardboard rails are made with 3 to 6 pieces (glued and pressed). they are 3" wide and about 3/4" thick. wood frame is made from one 8ft long "one by four'. true dimension is 3/4" thick by 3 1/2" wide. side rails are 29" long and top/bottom rails are 18 1/8" long. solar panel is 6V 250ma (1.5 Watt) from Radio Shack ($15.00). most computer cooling fans can be run on either 6V or 12V solar panel. I have seen similar solar panels on EBAY for as little as $5.00. harbor freight sells a 12V 1.5 Watt panel ($12.00) that would work well with this too. computer cooling fan is from Frys electronics ($5.00). those can just be salvaged from an old computer. i will be sealing /weather-proofing this heater.

You know, in one hour Earth receives more energy from Sun than the world use in one year. Very very less amount of solar energy is converted to renewable energy. One of the best use is water heating. In some country / city it is mandatory to use a solar water heater. Here we will do a simple study to understand and make a simple solar water heater.

How to make a water heater with big plastic (PET) bottles. Inside each bottle there is a 3.5 meteres piece of 4 mm drip watering tubing. This heater takes advantage of the greenhouse effect inside the bottles. It is like the heat inside a car in the sun in summer. Since when the circuit is stopped the water heats more inside the tubing it woul be a good idea to use a timer with i. e. 1 minute ON and 1 minute OFF. This also would protect the pump motor from excessive heating. With a small water pump the water is cycled and the temperature rises. It would be better to use a 12 volt DC motor water pump connected to several solar cells. You can also try to paste a sheet of aluminum foil in order to concentrate more heat inside the bottles. The solar water heater is scalable, so you can connect more bottles and groups of bottles in order to heat a swimming pool.

Off Grid Solar Power - DIY Solar Hot Water Another little project to get my teeth into. In January 2015 I took the electric hot water system out of the house and got a tankless propane water heater installed. That's great, but the less water I have to heat, the less gas I use, so I've decided to build myself a thermal collector. This is just to show some of the initial testing and planning. At this stage I'm using about 48 metres of 1/2" poly tubing. Yes, copper would be much, much better at conducting the heat, but the poly tubing cost me $20 whereas an equivalent amount of copper tubing would cost more than $350. $350 buys a LOT of propane.

Watch this video to see our solar pool heater design and learn some tips and tricks when building your own. We are in the second season of using this solar pool heater to heat our pool and have been very happy with the results thus far. The heater is made of 2X4 construction and 3/4" particle board for the box. The tubing is 500 feet of 1/2" irrigation tubing which was purchased for less than $20. Once I get the tubing back into place I plan to cover the entire box with a piece of glass, plastic, or some other transparent material that can hold some additional heat in around the tubing. The diverter that I made here diverts some of the flow of pool water from the pool pump for both my solar heater and the wood burning heater. I let this run continuously through the solar heater when it is sunny. I will post a separate video on the exact temperatures once I get some figures put together but the heater helps keep the pool temperature around 80 degrees with less than 8 hours of sun light on the solar heater or pool. I also use a wood burning pool heater if we have a few days of rain or clouds to boost the temp back up. The overall cost of this project with the irrigation tubing, fittings, pvc pipe for diverter, valves, and wood for the stand was about $80. I also used some stain that I already had to seal up the untreated wood a little bit as well. Compared to the cost of the solar heaters that you can purchase this project is a fraction of the cost with more surface area of tubing that can capture more heat energy.

In my mission to be more self sufficient on our urban homestead, I am always in search of ways to take advantage of what God has provided us with, free of charge. Today, that form of hand-out is solar heat. In consideration of heat for my new gun shop, I toyed with several ideas… wood, kerosene, and propane were my first choices, and then I thought maybe I should experiment with solar thermal. I did some research on solar thermal heat and then added my own common sense thinking to come up with this new solar thermal heat collector. My total cost was about $120 bucks and a day and a half worth of work. Hope you enjoy! Please show your support of Heritage Pride Custom Firearms by rating and subscribing! Thanks!

Here's a 3'x6' solar hot water panel I plan to fix up and use. I can get some more of these for free. Looks like they mostly need some cleanup and TLC. 2 of these would be good for a home hot water system. 10 of them could be used for home heating.

How to make a simple solar water still to make your own fresh water from soda PET bottles quickly and at almost no cost. The design is not perfect, I am still working on it, but the advantage of this design is the bottle water still can be hung up off the ground to keep away from animals or being blown over in the wind and the collection bottle allows you to not have to tend to it for days as it slowly fills up with fresh distilled water. The cost is almost nothing as it is basically recycled water or soda bottles, string,cardboard, hot glue and tape. Some people are going to freak over using plastic soda bottles. Glass bottles can be used instead if you are competent in cutting them in half. Dan Rojas at green power science has the best method on youtube on how to cut glass bottles if you are interested. However,the plastic soda and drinking water bottles should not emit harmful chemicals at low temperatures and the pvc collection tube can be replaced with hollow bamboo or elderberry or other local material. The cardboard wick component can also be replaced with untreated cotton or other wicking material. Wooden shims or spacers can be used in the interior instead of hot glue to keep the interior container centered. How much water can you get from one bottle? The second day I used the still I got 46 ml in 8 hours on a mild partly cloudy day. If you don't have access to 3 liter bottles you can use more common 2 liter bottles and add the cardboard wick to your interior container like I did with the 3 liter bottle. The collecting bottle should be covered to protect the water from being evaporated again. The design can be assembled very quickly after you make the first one. I know 46 mls is not a lot of water, but if you need clean water and have more time than money and access to recyclable bottles why not make a lot of bottle stills?Tthis design would allow you to make a lot of water in unused space along walls and fences or even the south side of trees as the design is vertical. It is also mobile and can be taken with you. It would be ideal for a boat too . If you have negative comments about my design and have improvements, please let me know. If you only have negative comments and no helpful input that will make the design better please save your time. I have been without water before. To me, clean water is civilization. without clean water life is terrible. Millions of people all over the world suffer from unclean water. I am hoping in some small way this design will help somebody, or at least be a start. Thanks for watching and check out my playlist on over 100 videos on things to make with recycled bottles.

Watch this video to learn how to heat your pool using an inexpensive wood burner! I have converted a Vogelzang wood burner into a simple pool heater and so far it has been working great! In this video I show the conversion process and how I am diverting the water using the existing pool pump. This is an excellent way to heat your pool for free! I have been using recycled paper logs as well as pallet wood for fuel and a few seasoned logs to extend the burn time. I will post actual temperatures as soon as I get a thermometer installed into the diverter. My goal for our family is to find ways to save money, reduce our waste, and use the things that are normally thrown away or recycled. I plan to do a future video on the process for using 100% of our family's paper waste to save us money and provide fuel for the pool heater. You do not have to own a large homestead in order to produce your own food, live sustainably, and save money in the process!

In this video we meet Casey & Natasha, a conscious couple who built a passive solar home near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to orienting their house to face south, they installed overhangs that block the sun to keep it cool during summer months and allow the sun to enter and heat the house during winter months. They also installed a 10 kW solar system that sells clean electricity back to the grid through Ontario's MicroFIT Program and the revenue helps cover their own utility bills. The house was built to Passive House standards and is currently pending certification. You can learn more about Passive House here: http://www.passivehouse.ca/fundamentals/ The exterior walls of this house are 20" thick and are insulated using Roxul insulation which is made locally, better for the environment, can get wet, and has less flame retardants than traditional fiberglass insulation, which means cleaner air quality in the home. To maximize the energy efficiency of their home, they installed triple glazed windows, a drain water heat recovery system, an air source heat pump water heater, and a bioethanol fireplace. They also chose sustainable alternatives like concrete countertops instead of granite, and reclaimed pine flooring instead of using new wood. Last but not least, they designed their house to be completely fossil fuel-free which means that they don't use any fossil fuels to power or heat their home. Casey & Natasha are building a conscious group of companies to align their work life with their personal values. Their companies include The Conscious Builder, the Conscious Living podcast and the Conscious Store (coming soon!). http://cgreyconstruction.com http://caseyplusnatasha.com Thanks for watching!
