Gordon's "$1K" Solar Water Heating -- From New Zealand

Gordon has provided details on how he built his version of the "$1K" Solar Water Heating system.  These systems are high quality, high solar fraction, all climate solar water heating systems that you can build for about $1000 in material costs.

Gordon's system adapts the design to his situation, his changes include:
- A well made, high tilt angle roof mount for the collectors.
- An all copper, single pass heat exchanger that pre-heats water before it gets to his existing hot water heater
