Plumbing Pontification

 I know nothing about plumbing. Here are my initial thoughts as I am drinking my morning coffee.  I rang a couple of plumbers but, no answer, so on my own.

I have spent the entire windy, cool day in my little Iceni roundhouse with the heater on tick over watching wallies show me how to use plumbing materials.  Surely it cant be that hard.  Let’s begin. My schematic shows a two coil water cylinder with the water being heated using solar

thermal power during the warmer months and a wood 
burner during the colder months.  For those times in which the weather can’t make up, it’s mind there in an immersion connected to 240 mains electricity.  
Oh, excuse me apparently according to my electric man!! 
it is now 230 volts.



Next excitement is the shopping list.  What must I buy?

I have decided to wait before purchasing the water tank, thermal panel and wood burner until later, I don’t want to 
blow 3 grand and find I can’t pay for the smaller things I need immediately but I do need to get the plumbing in before panelling…….more youtube videos.  10 hours!! 10 HOURS to work out 4 materials. Agghhhhh
OK, so here we have my full day’s work.  I still haven’t plucked up the courage to push the proceed to checkout button.
What do you think, shall I?
