Homemade Solar Water Systems ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
When it come to homemade solar power systems there is nothing as simple to construct as solar hot water heating system. To understand the physics and the concept you have only to leave a black water hose out in the sun few hours and then spray it on your hand.
The requirements for materials to make a device at home to capitalize on this phenomenon are not very stringent. You can use lots of different pipes or hoses as long as it ends black in the outside, doesn’t leak and can take the pressure you expect it to handle.
