Now a day, plenty of hot water is used for domestic, commercial and industrial purposes. Various resources i.e. coal, diesel, gas etc, are used to heat water and sometimes for steam production. Solar energy is the main alternative to replace the conventional energy sources. There are various types of solar water heater system available in the commercial market to fulfill different customers demand, such as flat plate collector, concentrating collector, evacuated tube collector and integrated collector storage. A cost effective cum easy fabricated V-trough solar water heater system using forced circulation system is proposed. Integrating the solar absorber with the easily fabricated V-trough reflector can improve the performance of solar water heater system. In this paper, experiments on the efficiency were conducted for a week during which the atmospheric conditions were almost uniform and data was collected from the collector. The experimental result has shown very promising results in both thermal efficiency of V-trough reflector & parabolic solar water heater.
