  13. Freeze Protection-Draindown The Sunspool draindown valve was popularly installed in the 1980's, but is no longer manufactured. Draindown systems have proven to be the most problematic of all freeze protection systems. They are vulnerable to frozen vacuum breakers and air vents, damaged sensors or wiring, lack of proper pipe drainage, and malfunctions with the draindown valve. This type of system is rarely installed new any more, and is not recommended.

  27. Sizing Solar Hot Water Conservation: Turn down Thermostat to 120-125deg Wrap the water heater with insulating blanket Fix drips in faucets Efficient showerhead and faucet aerators Insulate hot water pipes in unheated space

  28. Sizing Solar Hot Water US Usage: 15-30 gallons per day/person Family of 4 = 80 gallons One square foot/.75 gallon of collector in NE= 107 sq ft 100% in summer, and 40% in winter

  29. Instantaneous backup
