    After three years chasing mice on the farm, and stuck on dialup, I am in a hotel with fast internet. So here is one of the projects I have worked on in the last three years.

    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

    A very easy to build, inexpensive, CPVC liquid (hydronic) solar hot water collector that you can use to heat your home or for domestic hot water. This collector is significantly outperforming my pex collector in testing so far. Enjoy free heat, courtesy of the sun!

    A FORTUNE! And then some idiots will just trash the thing and steal your copper. I'll pass. It'll be PVC for me.

    Here is one made from PEX tubing. With a comparison between copper and PEX.
