Some things to keep in mind:

- Weight. I think a gallon of water weighs right at eight pounds. That's 80 pounds for a 10' length of the piping. Be sure it is properly supported.

- Variable temperature may make keeping a water supply at a certain temperature difficult, such as taking a shower.

- You will need a way to completely drain the system during winter.

- Fungus may grow on the inside of the pipes.

- Pipes may grow fragile/brittle due to ultraviolet exposure.

See if you can find a site on solar hot water heating and run your question by there.
