    How to secure a solar heater to your roof..

    Can anyone provide a link, or a suggestion that has worked for them as to how to correctly secure the roll out type solar pool heaters to a roof? I had mine laying on the ground last year and it just isn't cutting it! Thanks in advance!~

    At the bottom left of every page is a google search bar. Just enter "how to install solar panels" and it should pull up a few threads for you to read.

    I wouldn't put them on a shingle roof, they eat through the shingles and the shingles will wear holes in them too. I built a lean to on my barn with a metal roof and not too much of a pitch. If you have a steep pitch they will settle downward too. I use the roof straps and I also used ratchet straps on the ends too. I get a lot of wind where I live.
