    ECO SAVER Solar panel install

    Need some help guys, I have an Ultra frame 16 x 48 Intex pool with the 2650 gal sand filter and SWG. I'm going to use the Eco saver 20' solar panel mounted on my south facing block wall. Don't really have the room for a stand (don't want to kill the grass) and the roof is out of the question. The panel is 20'L x 30"H. I plan to mount it along the top of the wall with about a 12" kick out, think of a triangle on a verticle wall. It will be equally supported thru its overall length. Any body see a problem with this?

    I'd love all the expert feed back if possible

    Welcome to TFP!

    Remember that those panels are heavy when full of water. As long as the wall is solid and you have good supports for the panels it will be fine, but if the wall is at all iffy you might want to try something else.

    Thank you Jason, not sure on the volume of water it holds but the tubes are small. One vendor said about 3.5 gal/min but I find that hard to believe
