    This German

    company had a display at the RPA RadFest testing the solar "waters" in the US of A.

    They had some very nice panels and a first class brochure with great installation photos. I like the idea of panels mounted on a vertical wall surface to ease some homeowners concerns about a "spaceship" on the roof :)

    Solar panels work on the old delta t principle and their efficiency is highest with the coolest water going in. Allowing, or encouraging, the tank to stratify with the hottest water at the top allows cool water to be drawn from the bottom, taking advantage of the wider delta t.

    This tank has a "layering shaft" built inside. A clever approch to this concept.
