      : Greg…A Thermo-Siphon is easily installed, the main thing is to always have the storage tank higher than the heat source. If your going to build this from scratch, consider grossly over sizing the piping to and from your storage tank. This will provide additional storage, but more importently will provide better circulation. Remember. this system works by gravity, the cold water is heavier than the warm water and will flow down to the heat source and displace the warm water to the storage tank. Insulate the tank and pipes fo best results. Remember : also that there is a potential for problems so be sure to incorporate a T&P (temperature and pressure) releif valve (preferably at or near the heat source) Lotsa luck and Merry Christmas : Bud : Suncoast Plumbing : Sunny Floridahello , Im a student in jordan , majorly studying mech. eng. , hope you can help me in my graduating projects about solar energy storage as latent heat
