SOL-Perpetua™ Solar Water Heating System Installation Instructions and Operating Manual For Series "A" Pumps
Components of a SOL Perpetua™ System - Collector Panels
Although we refer to the collector panel(s) as part of the SOL Perpetua™ system, BAPL does not make collector panels. Any manufacturer's well made panel can be incorporated into a SOL Perpetua™ system so long as the fluid passage ways are copper and 100% airtight.
Panels with parallel vertical tubing and horizontal headers top and bottom are the more common. Panels with serpentine tubing also work well as do evacuated tube collectors.
There must be a drain plug at the bottom of the panel or group of panels to allow proper flushing before filling the system with working fluid.
