Finally got around to completing my solar panel installation. Everything went smoothly, although working 30 feet high on a 12/12 roof was a bit scarier than I expected...
The panels are 4' x 12' (Technosolis brand). All the piping is PVC and was painted black on the roof and brown on the walls using Krylon Fusion PVC paint.
We were 2 guys and we had appropriate scaffolding and used ladders to "walk" on the roof. It took us about 4 hours to install the 4 panels. A nice fun project if you are a DIYer and do your homework before the installation.
I completed the installation last week and we only got 1 real nice hot and sunny day. The water went from 64 to 74 on that day. Unfortunately its been cold and cloudy since then so we lost it all.
Here are the pics:
