Solar water heaters are not a new idea, but people who often complain about rising energy prices should be reminded to use such devices to help heat their homes and take a shower, too.
The solar water heater is not expensive at all, all you need are some pipes, joints, glue, polyurethane foam and a big container for hot water (insulated, if possible).
A reader of The Green Optimistic, Jake, sent us a video he made about the solar water heater he conceived at his home, in Brazil. It heats up water up to 55 degrees Celsius (135 °F) in hot summer days and allows him to save precious electricity used by the electric water heater installed in the shower’s head.

Thanks, Jake! Good luck in your mission!
