Since we don't have hot water here in Northern Peru (as in most of the world) I decided to try heating it with the abundant sun we have.

I looked up plans to build a reflector out of cardboard and aluminum foil and it works really good.

I put in on the porch where it gets only about 3 hours of sun in the morning, but that is enough to heat 4 gallons in a black bucket very hot!
