Sola60 - four years old

If you have an example of a good or bad solar water heating setup, then write to me here. Please include digital photos and contact details to verify the details.

This Sola60 panel is a little over four years old and is covered by what looks like white talcum powder.

Here is another view of the panel above: This has no lagging at all. It faces west, so it is only getting full sun later in the day and very little at all during winter months. It should be facing north.

The panel temperature sensor was hanging loose. It is possible that this panel has never worked due to this loose sensor, the absence of lagging and because it is facing the wrong way to the sun.
