I'm looking at doing a DIY solar install and was trying to find some information on how people's panels are holding up over time. In particular I'm looking at sungrabbers, sunquest, and enersol systems. How are they holding up? Cracking, leaking, doing fine?
I'm not terribly interested in the performance as I am how often I'm up on the roof fixing a leak. All I'm looking to do is extend the season in California and make it a bit more comfortable for the kids. I'm happy with the temperatures that our cover achieves on its own (75-80), but the rest of the family wants 80+ and I like the idea of extending the season a couple months. Probably looking at 144 sqft of panels or thereabout for a 12x22 igp (~12,500 gal, it's shallow) on a south facing roof.
