This thread will cover my DIY install of craigslist Heliocol panels.
I bought 7, 4x12 panels for $300 on CL. It came with the majority of the mounting hardware.
These mounting pieces seem to be the old style sled system that requires the "z bar" for installation.
The owner did not have the z bar. I assume the roofers tore it off when they installed the new roof.
I can't seem to find the z bar anywhere so I will either have to order the new clamp system, which will run $80 a panel or figure out another way to mount them.
They also came with this
The previous owner said it was used under the panels to prevent damage?
The original installers also used silicone on all of the connection O rings. Is this standard practice?
I need to clean off all of the old silicone and order CPVC pipe connectors and a VRV as well.
I will be sharing the planned layout and plumbing after I get back in a few days from a trip.
