The solar heaters for the pool keep the pool warm year-round without expensive gas heating. Electric tankless water heaters minimize the time and water wasted to get hot water to showers and sinks. Fifteen thousand liters of water storage in two cisterns includes automatic pumping between them to minimize water stagnation. An electric depth gauge makes it easy to determine water depth without pulling up concrete cistern covers.
