Morning,
Does anybody know what happens to a solar thermal flat panels (a pair on south facing slate roof) that have been unused for at least 12 months possibly year before also. System has been switched of due to loss of pressure. How will last years heat wave conditions have effected the panel components. Is it simply a case of flushing and refilling the system or is further damage likely. Kingspan no longer doing solar thermal
Many thanks

Good question, I would be interested in find out what our expert members say
 
Depends if it was drained you should be ok but old gycol is corrosive and you could end up replacing the panels and piping tbh I would opt for a new system if you went down the route of re commissioning there would be a heavy t and c page

Looking for some help here - not my boiler, so consider me a proxy. I'm also by no means a heating engineer: I'm just looking for pointers, as the owner of this boiler is now caught firmly between "not us", "not us" and "not us" - nobody will take responsibility, and just calls into question...
