|Collectors solar preheat water for apartment building.|
The solar heated water storage tank located inside the building's utility room right behind the collectors, which makes for nice direct plumbing.
The tank is a non-pressurized combination drain back and solar heat storage tank that is constructed with OSB and lined with EPDM rubber membrane.

Nice simple plumbing using PEX and SharkBite fittings. These are the valves that allow the solar water preheat to be bypassed if desired.
Micah's day job is in Nepal, and he has some interesting comments on solar in Nepal.
