Flow water in one side of the panel, hot water comes out the other. Simple! This Solar Water Heater is a powerful and efficient heat battery. Whether you’re building a solar water heater system on the roof of your home or a DIY solar water heater to cut energy costs and go green, or need a plentiful supply of hot water for a remote location, this is an affordable & long lasting solution.
This is a modular system. One panel will heat 5 gallons of water from room temperature to 122 degrees in 4 hours (see below). Connect multiple panels together for more water capacity and larger projects like heating pools, hot tubs, or home use.
This panel includes only the solar heating tubes and plumbing array. A pump, piping, and energy source is required (Panel with pump & solar panel is available here).
Standard 1/4" copper pipe through-flow in/out ports for simple connections. Engineered to easily integrate into DIY or standard plumbing systems, the copper manifold pipe is comprised of 10 continuous "u-pipe" bends, maximizing your hookup options while minimizing size, weight, and cost
On Solar Tube Performance
10 Solar Tube array only.
Heats 5 gallons of water from 68°F (room temp) to 122°F (above hot tub temp) in four hours if recirculated by our Solar Water Heater Pump.
Jumps temp of any input water circulating through by 37°F at flow rate of 5 gallons per hour (pump required).
Heats water at a rate of 165 watts. 12v Solar Water Pump (one unit). Max water flow: 20liters/min. Rated voltage: 12 V DC, Rated Current: 2.8A
Unit measures 23" wide, 22" tall, 3" thick, weighs 19 lbs.
1/2-inch CPVC thread adapters for universal connection options included (two units).
Do not exceed 100 psi (Ok for most city supply pressure). Closed systems must have relief valve.
HIGHLY EFFICIENT SOLAR THERMAL COLLECTOR. Sunlight is extremely powerful. Steam & burn danger without proper handling. Remember to never connect to a closed system without pressure relief. Do not touch internal components while heated.
Boil water using only sunlight! 1 tube can raise 1 liter of water from 60'F(15'C) to 212'F(100'C) in one hour of direct sunlight. Use this box of 10 tubes for your own science or hobby projects, or for building your own powerful solar-powered home heating systems.See all the specs and buy now »
