So I'm sure everyone here is much more in formed on this subject than me. Friend gave me these panels we are going to hook them up on our roof at a very slight angle. And I have a couple of questions.

1. They were hooked together with rubber hose previously what type is the best ?

2. Was going to place two ball valves in the system is there anything else that should be placed / reccomended. Pressure valve? Thermostat?

3. Are these types of solar heaters common see much more of the plastic ones not welded aluminum like these?

Thanks Justin

Welcome to TFP!

Here is a nice install guide that I used to install my panels. There are also pics of my solar install in my pool thread, link in sig.
