Someone mentioned that temp regulation for showers and such would be a problem but I've seen articles on rigging the solar portion as a sort of "pre-heater" that then goes into the regular water heater so that if it's not hot enough at that point for your use, the water heater doesn't have to use as much energy to get it where you want it as it would if the water was coming directly from the well. That way all you'd have to do was drain the solar part in winter if you lived in a cold climate and you'd still have hot water conventionally.
