Thanks guys.

The tank is well insulated, so it wont need to heat up from cold every day, which will reduce the time to reheat the used hot water. Of the 300 litres I'm probably using 50 or so litres daily, washing dishes and a shower or two.

I do have a gas on demand heater, so when its overcast and the tank is cold, I switch over to the gas heater. There have been cold mornings when I have been very very thankful for my gas water heater  

Yeah been very interested in using solar directly with a low voltage element. Project for next year.

People say 2020 is a terrible year, with the bush fires, COVID 19, and riots. But I see it as the year we woke up to ourselves.
