    I have designed and been using a water heater off grid for over 4 years. The original worked great for the past 4 years but the new and improved model is even better. I will post some pictures and try and answer all questions for any and all who want to build one. I can’t seem to upload pictures so ask me a question and send an e mail that i can send you pictures and instructions on the building of it.

    Hello,

    I recommend a tankless LPG water heater !

    I use one with a DC fresh water pump. The ignition is also DC powered from the battery bank. Some are using 2 D size batteries. Very simple !

    This is how they work.
