Make Your Own Solar Shower

July 29, 2012

Instructor Name: Chris Magwood
Endeavour Centre
Peterborough, ON

There is nothing better than taking an outdoor shower in your own backyard with free hot water from the sun!
In this workshop, you will learn how to build your own solar collector and install your collector in a thermosyphoning system that will generate copious amounts of free hot water for your shower without the use of pumps or electricity.

During the workshop, each participant will build his or her own collector that can be taken home to and made into a solar shower or other water heater. We will install one collector as an example, and each student will take home an installation guide for his or her own collector.

Find out about solar collector systems connected to any outdoor hose and those hooked up to rainwater collection systems, as well as portable systems. Maintenance, winter-proofing and drainage issues will also be addressed.

Building your own solar hot water shower is one of the fastest, most immediate and empowering ways to learn about solar hot water and low-impact systems.

This workshop will take place at Chickabiddy Acres, an organic farm near Hastings, Ontario. Lunch will be provided. The workshop will run from 10am – 4pm.
