A South Carolina inventor has developed what is said to be THE new choice for solar hot water technology. The Rocket Dome, uses the power of the Sun's warming rays to heat water-similar to a black garden hose laying on the ground on a hot summer's day. It is able to store 200 gallons of clean potable hot water for domestic use or capable of heating a swimming pool for extended swimming seasons. The Rocket Dome is SRCC certified and made in USA.
