System type: ICS
Installed: 1997
Inspected: 2003

System is working fine. Owner understands what the system does and is quite appreciative of it. She recently had the roof shingles replaced and insisted that the system stay on the house. Flashing was well done. The piping insulation needed a UV protective coating. Suggested that she use latex paint. Also some sections of roof pipe run copper were exposed. She will fix this. It was a real pleasure talking to someone that understood the function of her system and was appreciative of what the system provided – savings and plenty of hot water.

The client also stated that she often turns the power to the auxiliary tank off and relies solely on what the ICS unit produces.
