DIY Solar Water Heater

Our Homemade Solar Water Heater we built to heat the water for our Homemade Ofuro (Japanese Soaking Tub). You can learn how to build your own from this great website: Solar Water Heating. The Solar Water Heater we built can be found here: An Experimental Copper/Aluminum Solar Water Heating Collector. The only difference in ours is the dimensions. Ours was made on a 4′ x 4′ plywood base… because we built it in our apartment before we moved out to the mountains.

  1. Hi, You have a great blog. Thank you for sharing your information with the world! It needs it. Secondly, I work with a non-profit farming organization and we intend to build a solar water heater and are fond of your design. Do you know how much cubic volume of water you are heating and what are the dimensions of your panel? If you have time, a list of supplies needed would be very helpful. Your video shows parts well but a list would be phenomenal. Thank you very much. Liz

  2. Hi Liz. Thanks for visiting our blog. We added the link to where we got the instructions and inspiration for our solar water heater above the video on our blog… it’s the link called: An Experimental Copper/Aluminum Solar Water Heating Collector. It’s from a website called: Build It Solar. They also have a list of all the components needed to build one. Let us know how yours turns out. God Bless.
