Servicing hot water panels?

Postby jules » Sat Aug 14, 2021 12:41 pm

I've picked up a pair of fairly old hot water heating panels from a system with a pump and [tank below panels] and I'm considering using them in my low pressure thermo-syphon [tank above panels] system.

Beyond what I can see through the glass, I don't know what the construction details of these panels are but I'm wondering what faults might exist in used panels like this and whether it might be possible for example, to clean out the inside of the pipes.

Any thoughts welcome.
Primary system: .8KW Trina panels; Plasmatronics PL40; 1,000Ah VRLA 12X2V battery bank; 1.7KW Selectronic inverter. Off grid for 30 years.

Spares; 5 x 12V, 1,000 Ah batteries plus a couple of regulators
