Hello Bob
Would you please share with me your ideas for the design of a simple, DIY, thermosiphon system that could be used for seasonal solar hot water for an outdoor shower.
Preferably using recycled materials and something that a non-plumbing-knowledgable person like me could build.
Thanks
Kate

The simplest seasonal solar shower is a barrel mounted on a stand. preferably at least 6' high to the bottom of the barrel. The barrel is painted black. There is a shower faucet attached to the barrel. You can even have a shower curtain attached to the stand for privacy.

Bob,thanks
Sometimes I overlook the simplest solutions...that set up makes sense. I think I can put it together. Now to scrounge for parts...
