System is not working.

System developed leak in collector about two years ago. Owner could not afford to have service done on the system. Owner isolated the system (collector loop isolation valves).

Inspection revealed leak at header/riser location. Also noted leak at air vent during inspection.

Owner liked her system, but claims she cannot afford the service call. Installer wanted $50 per hour.
