  How does that work. How do you get it to stick and how thick is it.



  Or I'll find a steel tank from a scrap

No luck with painting these either with high zinc or epoxy paint?

ok if you use antifreeze [glycol] solution.

The Robert Shurcliff book (my all time favorite source of ideas) has
some stratification schemes in the "Storage Systems ..." section.  Its
a free download thanks to Robert:

Just click on each section to download it.

Sounds a lot like William Shurcliff's New Inventions book :-)

   We've had a bit of a drought here and what I see in EPDM liners is
limited now. Nobody is selling pool liners if you aren't allowed to fill
them! One garden chain had a pool and landscaping store and that store
went out of business, followed by the chain.

   I may have to order online. Last time I looked here I only found poly.

   I've read the tank article before and liked it. I'll look again now...

   Lots of dead air. The insulation could be in the walls, not in
contact with the barrels.

   I mentioned that because I had been reading a still active thread on
stratification. I think with a fairly small tank I won't have to worry
much about it. On the other hand, I'd like to have plenty of hot water
for, hot water... I think I'll have plenty of collector to not have to
worry much. I suppose I'll need a heat exchanger or a lot of copper tubing.
