Solar panel frame

Postby droogie » Sun 19 Jul, 2009 19:56

Has anyone built a frame to hold the 20 x 2 solar panels used for heating pools? I just bought a panel and I hooked everything up, trouble it is it laying on the ground which isn't terrible but I know I will have a 20 x 2 patch of dead grass. So I was thinking of building some kind of frame to hold the panel at a similar angle to those seen in all the ads. Maybe out of PVC to reduce weight, but I am not confident I can come up with my own design, I was hoping to find something online...

Wonderful replies jackasses.

Depending on the weight of the panels when full and what you want to do, a 2x4 wood frame with 2x2 cross beams should generally be strong enough and light enough to move about.
