  2. hi i have a log boiler which in the summer just does hot water its paid for itself now so getting lazy and sometimes just flick on the oil boiler for a bath any one boost their tank in summer with solar ? if so is it solar electric then an imersion type heater or directly heating with solar hot water tubes ? any tips or expereinces welcome its a 2000 litre tank not wanting to spend too much as i would be spending to loose RHI money for an easy life less firewood gathering etc also rather boost the buffer as that would not involve any work in the house thanks david
