    I bought three 2' x 12' Fafco panels on eBay, didn't see any 4' ones though.

    Re: Fafco sunsaver solar panels

    Thanks for the link. That is a really great price, however, one of the reasons I am looking for the Fafco sunsavers is the 2" connectors or pipe. My pool plumbing is 2". So far I found a company that sell me the panels for $596 a panel with mounting hardware, but I think is a bit high, not sure.

    Have you checked out Techno-Solis panels or Vortex panels (same panel) from Solar Direct? They support DIY install and have 4x12 with 2" headers.

    Sorry, my bad. I just realized you wrote "sunsavers", but I read "sungrabber" & those are the panels I have.

    Re: Fafco sunsaver solar panels

    I was told by a dealer that I need to install the Sunsavers ST panels because I have barrel roof tile. Does anybody knows if this is correct? They says the Sunsavers panel will mo;d to the roof tile.

    Being in Miami (Dade county?) you are likely going to have a lot of hurricane related regulations to deal with. See this thread from a couple of years ago Solar Panel Questions - Page 2 My understanding of the situation is some types of panels, divided tube?, meet the regulations easier than connected tube, or flat panel.

    Solar Direct has installation hardware for barrel and concrete tile roofs. They are located in Florida and I'm sure they are familiar with hurricane code compliance.
