Site 695

System type: ICS
Installed: 1997
Inspected: 2003

System working fine. Inner Teflon glazing has come off the frame and is lying on bottom tube of unit. New owner understand the system. System manual came with house. Uses residence in winter months.

Owner goes away for the summer and leaves the system as is. Does not drain or isolate the collector loop. This undoubtedly creates extreme temperatures in the unit.
