I have been using the 25mm black irrigation hose during the summer and it gets real hot , but i only get about a few gallons as i have no storage tank for gravity feed or thermo syphon . I,m now set on an idea of a small frame or wooden tower or a roof for the hot storage tank with the shower underneath however i lack some basic knowledge on how to get started.
If i use coils in a black box will it still thermo syphon ?? or should i use vertical tubes array in the black box . I,m thinking of a 100lt black plastic garbage bin for the hot water storage above the shower and feeding the cold to mix from our house cold feed pipe ?. At the moment the system albeit very crude makes steam during high summer so any improvement will be even better. I do have more questions but one step at a time . Maybe someone could give me a few pointers or diagrams / photos please.
