Solar water heaters have been employed by many developed countries, especially in Europe, in order to rep lace the electric water heater. In Malaysia, implementations of solar water heater still in a small amount due to lack of public understanding and awareness of the working and potential benefits of Solar water heaters. Realizing those problems, the aim of this study is to design a cylindrical solar water heater using aluminium as the solar collector. Two designs of the solar collector were developed which are coil shape and fin shape with the tube inner diameter of 8mm and outer diameter of 9mm painted black, and testing experiments have been done on both design.
