Solar Hot Water – Basement Piping Detail
Image by Seattle. roamer
This picture reveals two loops of my solar hot water system. The cost enters into paying a good plumber who understands how all of it works to assemble. It takes several days including running it up to the roof. The roof run was simple in my case.
The first loop is the circulation loop from the roofing with the pump (center) and into a heat exchange coil in the tank on the right. This loop go back to the roofing system with the meter/pump and heads back to the roofing collector. This loop has (non-poisonous) anti-freeze (not Ethylene glycol which is the stuff in automobile radiator fluid).
The 2nd loop is the domestic water. It comes out of the storage tank (upper right) and goes into (black insulated pipeline) entering into the domestic hot water tank, (bottom left).
The circulation loop includes a bypass “”holiday”loop. You toss the value (center, above the pump/meter), and the water from the roofing distributes through 10′ or so of baseboard radiator (hidden through the wall and under the stairs). The system keeps working in the very best heat of the summer while your on getaway which prevents the coolant from being cooked. At the same time, the system keeps attempting to obtain the heat into the tank. Since in the spring I have actually seen the tank get above 120 numerous sunny days including when to 150 F, I make sure the system will be able to put plenty of heat in the tank even while losing lots with the radiator. When your not on getaway, the idea is that you utilize hot water which will keep the system distributing.
