Rob,
Is that a small child in amongst that steel-work?.
If it is, please remove it before you install the panel(s). [Linked Image]

Is that tobacco growing in the foreground?
Suspect you are actually constructing a cigar-rolling shed!

Alan, no its Corn Lily.

The panels are up now, and water is flowing very well. Its made completely of old PG&E Cross Arms.

NOTE: It also doubles as hunting blind.

What are you going to use the hot water for, Rob, that looks to be some way from a dwelling?

It hold the 4 PV Panels that power the pump, wich inturn fills a 2500 gal. storage tank and gravity does the rest. This array is about a 1/2 mi. from the cabin. The water system serves 13 cabins and 1 store. This is all seasonal and I take it apart every fall. Not the structure just the panels.
