The Green hose goes to the house and supplies the Washer and Bathtub with hot water. The two long Black items bolted to the top are considered to be Tanks 10 ft long PVC painted flat black.

Dude. That is a Awesome Idea using PVC as a Tank like that to increase the content.  Only suggestion I have what about tilting it, using thermal dynamics? Even a Slight tilt will make sure the hot water will go thru first... I think anyway...LOVE THAT!

Ryan The White T at the top is the area that splits the cold and hot water/ The Pressure going into the 4 inch PVC is positive the 4 inch. there is a slight tilt on the roof not visible about a quarter bubble or less. After the trip tough the two tanks the water hits the 150ft of well pipe on a hot tin roof. Then splits again green to the bathroom bathtub washing machine ect. The White pipe panted brown goes to the shoe.

We have had no issues with hot water at all. I guess what I am saying is we have had more than enough hot water to do the job.

Slight tilt is there but it aint much. Did you start on one yet?.

keep us posted

I been looking for a  hot water heater, I think I like a combination of (Batch Box) and (heater hose).  Trying to see how cheap I can make it, so I can film it.  I was told tomorrow I may get one if the lady gives it to me (hot water heater) using the batch box system, Depends on what I can get my hands on, however after I find out about the tank tomorrow I will go from there.
