I will. Today, possibly tomorrow evening.

Also, I will include a sketch of the system, position of the sensors, ...

I improved the pages http://www.invest-tools.com/pub/solsys  today, and added
a translation table :) Does it help?

Wow. That's a lot of heat storage.
Is this to heat your entire home ?
How much solar panel will you install ?

 All still being thought out yet. I saw a polyethylene tank at 1600 US gals today
for under $00. Thinking about how I can insert heat exchange coils into it via
the small clean out hole in the top.

Possibilities include, driveway snow melting, hydronic floor heat in basement,
heat water supplement.

Possibilities include solar panels covering a 12/12 roof side, natural gas
boosting, outside firepit with copper windings around the drum and inside wall

Much to think about and calculations to avoid too much play for too little
payback yet.

If I can phase shift my heat by collecting during the day and heating during the
early morning to bring house temp up. I am not sure of how much thermal mass or
lag will be involved yet. If it all falls apart I will at least have anice warm
walkout basement floor.
