    Default Sona Tubes for heating your water

    Anyone have them and are they worth it? I have radiant infloor heat and it is heated by a natural gas hot water heater. What kind of pay back would I be looking at with a system like this to help heat my water?

    Nuskovich, no, these are vacuum sealed tube the water flows around being heated by the sun then circulates through a water storage to heat high volume of water. May also be sealed with glycol (sp) and a closed loop. Just wondering if anyone on here has history with them.

    I saw those and they look perfect for remote SUNNY locale. I too might use a smaller version to supplement my RV's 12 gal hot water heater.

    My guess is that since you have natural gas available, solar won't save you any money.
