The collector is placed in contact with the water. There are different types of sheets that can be used for the collector. Corrugated metal work very well. Sheets of corrugated cardboard are often used as roofs of housing.Once the water is heated, it is kept warm with insulating material. This allows water to remain hot for a long time.
