DIY Solar Water Heater For About $30 In PVC Supplies And Paint

Hot water can be a big part of your energy bill.

"This project has become popular on the web and has been adapted to homes and even schools.  The State of Panama in Brazil created a Do It Yourself downloadable PDF manual (in Portuguese) that many consumers have followed and built.  It looks simple enough... notice the metal pipes run through the bottles creating a "greenhouse effect" so to speak to heat the pipes via the suns energy.  The more hot water you need, the more piping you add."

If anyone on the site wants to translate the video into English, that would be awesome.
