Solar Heated Stock Tank Does Well In Really Cold Climate

Its the time of year to think about doing a solar heated stock tank that will save a lot of ice breaking and electricity for tank heaters over the window.

Karolyn has worked  out a nice design for a solar heated stock than that performed well over the very cold winter last year in Minnesota.



South wall of tank is solar collector that heats tank.


Drinking opening with flaps provides improved freeze protection.


This design is rugged and provides good freeze protection.
