You could not run such a siphon system, using just a single tank: like Mike says, for a siphon to operate, it needs to be discharging into a tank that is lower than the feed tank.  Therefore you would need two tanks: a feed tank, that starts off cold, and a receiver tank, that starts off empty.

At the end of the day, your feed tank would be empty; and your receiver tank would be full of hot water.

The next day, your system could not run: your feed tank is empty.  etc.

Given the price of tankage, I honestly think that any economy you would make on electric power, would fade into insignificance, several times over...

You could however install a 12v pump and power it directly from a PV panel.   It's sorta self-regulating, no sun, no pump.

Thanks!Its been fun actually! I started from scratch about 10 yrs ago, trying to figure out the best way to get the heat Energy from the Sun as its Plentiful.Also i want to do what ever i can to do my part in stopping the Co2 Problem which is because we are burning Fossil fuels.Even the go called "clean" energy Natural Gas is making Co2. I can not do anything about whats going on Politically other than vote but i can do as much as i can for myself and freely share this as what not to do as i have been doing much experimenting.I think i can save do it your selfers much time and energy.The pictures are of the best heat extractors that i have found,i really like the bigger,HTP SSU-119 gallons.Its all Stainless Steel with a Beauty high performance cupronickel heat exchanger anti scaling so gunk doesn't build up,  as it seems to suck the Solar heat out and that heat rises to the top of that city water pressure side and any cold drops down to take any more heat If u don't mind my link on FaceBook is 
I have Nothing to sell! Its what i have done

You are doing something about it politically,  your voting with your pocketbook and your education.  Two types of votes the opposition fears worse than an election vote.
