Have been charting the temps on my 2 hot water setups, to explain, my cold water goes into the bottom of my 400L PV powered hot water tank, then the outlet of the 400L PV tanks goes into the inlet of my 300L evacuated tube solar storage tank then the outlet of the evacuated  tube HWS 300L tank then feeds my house with hot water, I am showing that my PV powered hot water tank is slowly over the last week increasing in temp more the the evacuated tube.
The evacuated tubes are 1800mm long  by 30 tubes, and the PV has 2.4kw of solar panels and runs at 1kw of heating, can produce more as panels are not facing towards the sun
