Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion low pressure, no electricity hot water Re: low pressure, no electricity hot water


Hey caverdude.

I use this method and as we have plenty of sun … it is great in the day.

There is a downside though. The water goes cold at night and of course that means no hot water in the morning. I run an Eco resort in the Caribbean and we are completely off-grid. My guests say the same thing …. no hot water at night/morning is the only thing we are not doing right.

So anyone? Can you help me add a tank or whatever to store the hot water?

I know … buy a solar water heater with tank …. but nothing on this island … and import duty make it all VERY expensive.

Any way to add a hot water storage tank?

To recap. I use a 1 1/2 inch black irrigation hose on the roof and that feeds the hot water input to a normal shower set up. I have about 15-20 psi water pressure gravity fed. I need hot water storage added. Any help would improve Eco resorts 500%.
