Thanks for your input...

so far so good where I have it set right now.

The 2 - 20 evac tube collectors are heating the storage tank water up above ground water temp which is my main goal.

Pump isn't running constantly.. shuts down and cycles now and then.

12 degrees here today and it's coming on then off to accomplish the mission.

I love it.
