    We are told that solar hot water (storage), systems need a second coil in the hot water tank.
    I have a project that needs a large tank for 8 people and 3 showers. (I have persuaded then not to have a bath).

    For most of the year the climate is hot/sunny enough to run on solar thermal (with a big tank). But for 2 or 3 months it gets a bit chilly and I plan to install 2 small wood stoves with water heaters. The 2 wood burners and the Solar will all be feeding a single indirect heating coil in the tank.

    I have worked how to do this in theory but has anyone experience of feeding one coil from more than one heat sources?

    Check out the Dual Thermostore...among others, I am sure.
