Step 3: Make Your Own Genius Portable Solar Heater Module
Solar Bag 1-2-3 = 1,04 m² = 1,04 k Watt or
Two Intex Solar Heater Mat = 2 m2 = 2,017 kWatt or 2017 Watt or
50 meter black garden tube 25 mm = 1,25 m² = 1,25 k Watt
look for more pictures on www.warm-water.be
Step 4: How to Make the Reducer/adaptor - Tube:
To make the reducer/adaptor - tube:
Go to a DIY shop and buy small pieces of tube from different diameter from 13 mm up to 32 mm. Slide one into the other. Make sure they slide tight ! That's all.
Step 5: Manual's
Step 6: How to Connect 12 Volt Pump to 12 Volt Solar Photovoltaic Panel !
Before you connect the 12 Volt pump to 12 Volt Solar photovoltaic panel,
make sure the photovoltaic panel is covered.
When the photovoltaic panel is covered, no current will flow ! And the pump is standby.
Submerge the pump in the Pool.
Once the photovoltaic panel is exposed to the sun, the pump starts pumping.
Step 7: Connecting 32 Mm Blue Tube to Adaptor, Pump and Intex Solar Heater Mat
Connect 32 mm blue tube to pump and adaptor 32 mm / 13 mm and Intex Solar Heater Mat
See image, photo
Connect other 32 mm blue tube to output of INTEX Solar Heater Mat.
( black 32 mm tube in the photo )
See image, photo, picture.
Step 8: Swimming
My swim coach instructed me to swim every day on holiday.
I went on holiday to Cyprus and the water in the Pool of the Hotel was cold. That's when the idea started in my mind, to invent a portable heater ! To warm Pool water !
Step 9: WATER HEATING TIME CALCULATOR
Step 10: Testresult of Test in South of France 2016
Test with a Blue Ocean Solar bag 1-2-3, a Intel Solar Heater Mat, a esotec Solar Pumpensystem " Milano", and blue 32 mm tubes
( After the first day, a wire from the ceramic pump broke, that why I used the fountain pump )
I was lucky that I had my first fountain pump 0,6 m3/h max and my first Solar panel 12 Volt with me. ( Milano - esotec Solar Pumpensystem )
The mat and the bag heated the water 4°C, from 23,3°C to 27,3°C ( Ocean Blue Solar bag 1-2-3 and Solar Heater mat intex )
Next demonstration februari 2017, Tenerife Spain !
Step 11: Improvements : Insulation ! and Using the Green House Effect !
When you lay the collectors on the ground.
You might put some insulation first.
Covering the collector with a plastic or glass plate,
will improve the results.
Step 12: Conversions
