System type: Pumped - differential controller
Installed: 1996
Inspected: 2003

System is not operating.
Solar system removed (control, pump, etc.)

New tank installed several months ago. Installer did not reconnect the solar system. Controller and pump missing. Interestingly, the tank installer reconnected the collector loop piping from the tank drain area.
Does not include valves, etc.
Collector is in good shape. Air vent had lot of sediment buildup.
Has collector feed and return lines at top of unit. Will not drain. Installer added a drain valve to compensate for this. Note location of freeze valve.
