How to fix Solar Heater Leak?


Apr 28, 2017
I have a big leak in one of the panels in my solar heater. Does anyone know how to fix it?
I have seen the fix videos if the leak in somewhere in the middle of the panel. But my leak is at the top whit the panel is linked to the pipe.

Here is the picture:

I don't think you are fixing that. Hard to tell where the leak is. Did the header pipe split? I think you will have to replace that panel or remove it and make the array smaller.

Agreed, probably time for a new one there. The only chance I see is to cut the tubes back and plug them and then see if you can plug the holes in the header.
