solar heater pump -DIY Solar Pool Heater with Topsflow pump

October 13, 2012 – 9:25 pm

** This is my project solar heater which is powered by a water pump Topsflow and a panel of 30 watts solar Instaspark. There is 100 meters 1 inch PCV pipe in the box together with the flashing of metal roof. Capacity is 2.5 liters per hour and the water temperature rises to 15 degrees above the temperature of the intake. Can I try another fact to the copper tube. Video Rating: 5 / 5

  2. Looks like 2.5 gallons per minute. I’d suggest anything but PVC, it’s too energy efficient.

  4. Don’t use copper, it will react with the chlorine in the water, it won’t be pretty.
