    Sungrabber solar panel plumbing

    All,

    I am planning on installing 2 sungrabber panels, hard piped w/ 1-1/2 sch 40. i know the header ends are not 1-1/2. What has everyone used to connect the panels to your PVC? Can it be bought at HD or Big Blue?

    Thanks for all replies as I am 2000 miles away from my pool.

    1-1/2 x 1-1/4? And are you talking about the same ones used to join either lead or cast iron pipe? I noticed most have DWV use only on them. I guess the pump pressure is low enough it shouldn't matter.

    The rubber couplings that came with my SunGrabber kit are reinforced hose, not just rubber couplings. They look
    like radiator hose to me. The PVC pipe is connected to the hose couplings with a 1-1/4" X 1-1/2" PVC barbed adapter.
