My current question for you guys is how would you connect these solar panels? The guys that took down the panels just used a sawzall and lopped off the header pipes so they barely extend beyond the sheet aluminum case. I had planned on using PEX tubing between them. This seemed like a nice idea because it was simple, but I'm a bit worried about overheating the PEX and that causing leaks. Do you guys have any suggestions?

They sell metal connectors for gas water heaters that would work but would cost a lot for that many connections.I think to code a gas water heater connection has to be 18 inches long.Then the PEX would hook to it.What i don't know is if they would have to that long when hooking up your solar panels.
