Maybe you’ve ever been terrified by the destructive pictures caused by the sun’s solar flares in the movie Knowing.

Yet we know that scenes in the movie are a bit far from now.

So far, sun’s solar energy is useful rather than ruinous to our daily life. Solar water heater is a good example.

Many smart ways to using solar water heater environment-friendly and efficiently have been come up by people with eco-consciousness and thrift. Here is a scan.

 A wonderful touch to beer bottle beer-bottle-solar-panel

A Chinese farmer named Ma Yanjun took 66 empty beer bottles, some hose pipe and a board and created a solar hot water heater. The sun heats up the water as it passes through the bottles.

Ma Yanjun  invented the solar hot water heater so his mother could shower comfortably. He says three people can take hot showers each day using his innovative hot water device, which is connected to the bathroom in his home. Others in his village appreciates that and have begun to copy his design.

So next time before you throw all those empties in the recycling bin, think about this and some fanciful ideas may just pop out .

  Solar Water Heater Alternativeintermatic electric timer

James S. Boud have a good suggestion for the consumers of Solar Water Heater.

What’s behind it is an intermatic electric timer what you have to install. It is a heavy-duty timer in its own metal box, like you might use on your swimming pool pump, not one of those plastic light timers you can buy in a department store. Mr Bound has his own set to come on at 6 a.m. and go off at 9 a.m.

You can shower, do laundry, run the dishwasher during that settled period, and the water will reheat before shutting off at 9 a.m.

If the water heater is well-insulated, then it will hold the temperature for long periods so that there is still hot water in the afternoon or evening for another quick shower.

If you decide to run the dishwasher later in the day or more than one of you take a later, second shower after some activity, setting a second off control on the timer will help.

All you have to do is flip the on switch manually and, in 10 minutes to 15 minutes, plenty of hot water is available. In case you forget to shut it off again, the second off switch is set to shut it off at 6 p.m.

According to a netizen, the price is reasonable and they are available in both electric and gas versions. They work great and will save you money. They’re true bang for a buck.solar water heater
