DIY your own solar water heater with this high-quality flexible tubing! It's as simple as 3 steps:
1. Spray paint or coat this tubing with a black color to absorb heat from the sun.
2. Coil the tubing in an enclosed housing, like a wooden box. Make sure the box has plenty of windows so it can use the "greenhouse effect" to transfer heat from the sun's rays to the black tubing.
3. Pair with our 12V solar water heating pump and Fortress Mini Solar Generator to have a 100% sustainable solar water heater!
Polyurethane tubing has several characteristics that can make it suitable for outdoor applications:
- Durability: PU tubing is known for its resistance to abrasion, which can be helpful in outdoor environments where the tubing might come into contact with rough surfaces.
- Flexibility: Even at low temperatures, polyurethane retains its flexibility, making it useful in colder outdoor climates.
- Resistance to Water, Oils, and Some Chemicals: PU tubing can resist the detrimental effects of water and many oils and chemicals, which is essential for outdoor applications.
- Temperature Range: 32° to 180° F
