    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I have a 12 x 24 in-ground salt water pool that I would like to use this panel to warm the water. If I hang on a fence or use a rack, how do I attach it? Are there slots in the panel so I can screw into the frame/fence? Also, what are the hoses? How would I attach to my pump and pvc piping? Can you attach a close-up of the panel? Thanks, Tom in Florida"
