I have started looking into the addition of solar heating to our 14,000 gallon in-ground pool. I am leaning on a simple manual system with panels like a Favco. I am sure from the reading I have done and some experimenting this season that I will be happy with it. My concern with a system like the Favco that mounts on the roof of your house is holding up to the intense summer sun and temps here in Texas.
Is anyone running solar panels up on your roof in Texas or in an equally hot climate? Do you just put them in by-pass and just let them sit there all summer? This summer I needed to go up on the roof and I could not believe hot hot the roof shingles were and they were not black. I am concerned about this and I have been thinking that maybe a system like for above ground pools might be better where you can take the panels down during the hot of summer and only put them up late winter and late summer.
