I wanted a tilt-able/rotatable pole mount for the solar water heater's 24 volt PV panel, so I used some scrap aluminum and the mount from an old DSS dish to fabricate this:  
... and here's the PV panel mounted. I'll buy a 10' stick of 1.1/2" EMT to get it a little higher up in the air (my wife has bumped her head on this twice so far).  
First test of the solar water heater with the new design collector. I used 40 feet of 1/2" ID black vinyl pond hose coiled inside.  
Close-up of the new solar collector. It works better than the solar pool collector used in the first experiment, but still not hot enough. I'll try copper tubing next time.
