Off my rocker?-Solar water heater?
Does anyone use solar to keep their animals water thawed out during the winter? Any thoughts or ideas on this?
For a science fair project for my son we made a solar-cooker. The temperature inside reached something like 185 degrees on a partly cloudy day this summer. Interesting project it was. It was a simple cardboard box, lined with aluminum foil, a "window" out of saran wrap, with 4 "collectors" lined w/aluminum foil. For use with animals the materials would of course need to be made of more permanent materials.
Am I off my rocker?
