It's been almost a year since I installed this Solar Hot Water Heater to generate hot water for my summer shower. This video is an update covering how the unit is performing and holding-up. I also discuss some of the science behind how the unit actually works.
A few months ago, we had a (weak) hurricane come through the area. Some small limbs blew off a nearby tree and fell on the unit. They caused no damage.
If you are interested in installing one of these units, and have any questions, feel free to contact me via Skype. My user name is: john_by_the_creek. When you send a contact request, please reference "solar water heater".
