- Jul 10, 2009Wow.
That would work.
And you would not have to completely bury the main "boiler", only about 75%. The cone would be more of a condenser and less of a boiler because the liquid would be hidden from direct sunlight.(in my humble opinion) A simple and elegant condenser. You could partially bury a 50 gallon (200 liter) barrel and have a take-off line to a holding jug. Come back in a month and see whats been produced.
