Most gardeners solve the problem as follows: on the roof of the shower put a huge barrel painted black.In the morning, the barrel filled with water, which is heated during the day and in the evening the whole family can take a shower.If you have not got such a "heater" - this is your first step to ensure a comfortable stay in the country.
Before installing the black barrel on the site, think carefully about where you put it.It should be well-lit place, it is desirable that it be barred from the wind as much as possible.Note that the wind blowi
ng at a speed of 10 m / s, the water cools your heater to 10 degrees.
The large surface of the barrel is illuminated by the sun, the faster the water is heated.One of the most common mistakes gardeners - when they leave the barrel either uncovered or covered it first got the cover, often silver.This cover will repel sunlight and does not help to warm the water.For better heat storage cask cover black cover.It will significantly increase the temperature of the water, because the cover will be exposed to direct sunlight, which previously reflected.
If you like to take a hot shower, and you need to raise the temperature of the water is still a few degrees, you will also be able to achieve this with the help of improvised.To do this you need to build around the barrel box.Drawer side illuminated by the sun, it is necessary to tighten a plastic film, or glaze.Unlit side of the same is necessary to insulate using insulator.For example, it can be filled with sawdust or wrap foam polyurethane foam.After creating a "greenhouse", the temperature of the water in the barrel should reach 60 - 70 degrees, and it even have to be diluted with cold water.
