joints. I've never seen copper tubing spring a leak, but I've seen every
other bit of plumbing leak.

This was advice from a plumber...
 

Sounds good to me.

You could make your own for a lot less than a commercial tank.

  Hello All,
  I am looking for a storage tank and have found several on-line in the
  60 - 90 gallon range. Problem is they have built in electric heating
  element that I don't need and they cost anywhere from $00 to $000 =
US.
  Does anyone have any idea for a plain jane insulated heat exchanger
  tank ?  Thanks, Kevin

I am going to use four 1000 liter tanks found surplus on eBay in many =
places across N. America. An insulated wall enclosing them should do the =
trick. Thes tanks are heavy polyethylene plastic and have a steel pipe =
grid around them so they can be stacked and hold hot water without =
sagging.

Cleaning out the silicone grease residue still presents a problem as yet =
though.

Call up local plumbing supply stores or big retailers like Sears
to see if they have any "defective" water heaters.  You might
be able to get some for a very low price that would still be
just fine for holding water.
