I need some Scientific Help on this one.

Convective circulating water by solar collector.


See my Solar Collector up top right. It catches Rays from the sun. to heat that loop of Water.
I'm hoping the difference between the Cool water down in the barn by the chick's sippy cups, will be driven up the loop to the Hot part by the heated water wanting to go to the Cooler part of the loop.

Is that what's going to happen?:praying: Will it circulate on cold days?:praying:

Hot water will rise, the only way convection would work is to have the waterers above the solar collector. You will have to put a circulating pump on the piping if the solar collector is above the chick waterers.

Way back in Grade school the science teacher showed us you could heat a hose full of water in one place, cool it in another and the water would circulate.

I'll have to do some more looking.
