System disconnected by owner.

System has been disconnected. New tank has been installed. Appears that the system was not providing enough hot water in winter months. Client is interested in perhaps using system again. Did not have any component problem with system. Felt they did not get enough hot water during winter months. Initial system tank may have been installed with lower element disconnected. Owner replaced the water heater and reattached solar plumbing. Will use in summer months. Provided advice regarding the setting of the elements and the trimming of trees on south side. Owner claims that all components appear to be in working order. Stopped by house as per arrangements made in Dec 02. No one home. Tried several times during day.
