Solar Thermal Loop

The Solar Thermal Loop is completed. Now I will air pressure check, fix one leak at a disconnect on the roof then let it set with pressure on it for 48 hours. See if pressure drops.

Pressure check with air: Adding air to the solar loop to see if pressure will hold. If pressure will hold then we have no leaks.Pressure check with air: Adding air to the solar loop to see if pressure will hold. If pressure will hold then we have no leaks.

This coming week we will get the controller on manual mode and test all its controls.
Also will add coolant and purge the lines. Get the pump going and all.
