The development status of flat panel solar water heater and the composition of water heater are described. The solar radiation in three typical weather conditions of sunny, cloudy and rainy days is studied. The hot water temperature, heat and heat collector efficiency are studied. The results show that the influence of the weather on the solar irradiance is large, and the irradiance has a great influence on the water temperature.
