So my goal is an awesome shower.
rainwater collection at the top of a hill
two solar water heater panels
A 200litre hot water tank
It's in a valley, sometimes four hours direct sun.
It heavily rains, water is an abundance
It's New Zealand, so quite nice in the summer, but tomatoes are hard to grow.
Mostly it's about an awesome shower.
Use a combo of califont and solar, therefore hotter water to heat up less therefore higher flow?
Or just use a califobt? (Budget may not equal awesome shower flow)
Also have.. a running stream that I always wonder about trying to harness the energy of, but seems silly in terms of water heating
What's your opinion please plumbing minded permies?
I want to achieve a decent water flow
