Here's a setup that Common Ground has here in New Orleans. They use garden hose and (painted?) black food grade barrels as a collector:

As far as tankless goes, I'm assuming you're using that as a backup and the collectors as a preheat. The problem that I've heard tankless heaters have is that parts and people who can do repairs are both hard to find and expensive.

Good luck with the project

My bike runs on dihydrogen monoxide.
I like to use these acronyms
