Is water heated by solar water heating system edible?

Solar distillation does not remove some minerals, microbes, and metals from the water. Some solar hot water systems heat the water in your home with a closed antifreeze-added solution that runs through pipes to heat the water. Unless you are talking about drinking the glycol solution or there is a leak into your drinking water then yes, it is edible.
