Build your solar water heater with simple, affordable materials!

To build a solar water heater, you need simple materials you can buy in any supermarket, or materials you’ve recycled. This video shows you step-by-step how to install a solar water heater at an unbeatable price. This installation is multi-purpose: aquaponics, outdoor solar shower or pool water heating.

Tips for improving the efficiency of your solar water heater

  • Use dark surfaces for your base. You’ll capture maximum solar energy.
  • Cover the pipes with a glass or plastic sheet to insulate the water pipe. This will create a greenhouse effect and retain solar energy.
  • Apply plastic gaskets or glue to the joints to make your water heater completely airtight.
  • Position the flat glass surface so that it faces the sun, and you’ll capture a large surface area of the sun’s rays.
