  1. Our multi-year web and graphic design firm. Very professional, fast, and most reasonable / competitive. PM or email me for added info. https://www.iridizen.com/
  2. Highly recommend TuboPlus (the green, not blue, not red) double walled, co-polymer thermo-fused pipe. Strong and very durable, yet a bit flexible. No glue, bonds permanently when heated ends go together. Hit it with a hammer. No problem. Sunlight - no problem. Rated up to close to boiling point of water (90 C) Sizes and fittings for all needs and applications, residential to commercial. Made in MX by RotoPlas under license from the German originators. http://www.tuboplussmx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/especificaciones-tecnicas-tuboplus.pdf
  3. You could hire this guy, but I wouldn't hang around while he does it....
  4. We won't hold our breath waiting for that response.....but maybe he can give 100 (or 1000) pesos to the Shriners for the nasty troll post and each "SAD" reaction to it. 😉
  5. Just the water based one for now; for smallest size, the KED heat pipe dry vacuum tube systems of 100 liters and up are quite compact and a great proven technology; the tank is rated for high pressure and insulated to have good hot water even after sitting overnight.
  6. Yes, great concept with sizing down utility scale thermal mass storage, however there were some manufacturing issues. All were taken care of n/c.
  7. Sorry to hear that on top of the loss.....they say on "certain" streets in Guad, one can buy back likely their same part, a couple of hours later.... 😉 mind you that only tends to encourage the thieves.....
  8. Totally different technology; that one stored the heat in a special mass; and was more like a "solar on demand" unit, while this one actually stores the heated water.
  9. IMHO those warnings come from the vendors of the portable power packs...... Done correctly with compatible 12 V battery, should be no issue. Positive to positive, then negative, to GROUND (not to negative battery terminal, for safety in not sparking near the battery) works every time. Then wait a moment while slightly revving the "donor" car engine a bit to a higher idle level, then crank the dead one up. Disconnect in reverse order and keep all cable tips apart until all are disconnected.
  10. Done. Full PDF spec sheet is avail; just email or PM me.
  11. MC, as usual, ask and you shall receive....STI now has a tankless compact solar water heating panel that both heats, AND stores, the water; 150 liters per panel. While we still reco the tube and tank systems as the default due to the high efficiencies of the vacuum tube and insulated tank technology, this is a great option / alternative for what you mention, and also for all the tiered housing communities who like to keep the rooftops as clear and uncluttered as possible. (exceptions include the critically important satellite TV dishes.....) 😉 Coupled with an auto on-demand backup, this can be a great solution. Image here, Spanish and English versions up on the website in the near future.
  12. Anyone with a car and cables.....where R U located?
  13. Agree on the "park and pick" option. Long term lot if waiting for the Paris travelers! 😉
  14. Overall, a great setup is a solar hot water heater, with an auto on-demand unit tied in as backup. Bosch and Kruger are good on-demand brands, generally speaking. This way, no matter the use, time of day, or sun conditions, there is 24/7 hot water, as fast as possible, with the minimum of gas use.
  15. MC, take into account the size of the jetted tub, plus the other regular intended use. Or, and better IMHO, plan to provide for the whole house, vs just the bathroom. Email or PM - YOU know how to reach me! 😉
