Residence for large family in Russell, Massachusetts.  Solar hot water installed by Spartan Solar.  Spartan says, “We always aim to minimize exterior piping, but the evacuated tube drain back solar hot water system was installed on a roof that had a cathedral ceiling inside and so it was more important to maintain the aesthetics of the interior.”
