. Basically, it's just a box with a pipe or tubing inside. One face of the box is clear to allow in sunlight. The inside of the box is usually painted forest green or black (for maximum energy absorption) and the pipe/tubing is usually copper (cheap, readily available, and good heat transfer). . If you make the unit rather tall, you can use thermosiphon to move the water and not have to use a pump.
