Hi Ex..

They're not completed yet but I plan on installing a T tubing pipe into the TOP pipe on my collectors, then attaching a spin type louvered vent similar to the ones used to vent attics right thru the roof.

When heat rises they spin allowing any heat to escape during the summer.
The spin type louvered vent will be easily removable and replaced with a 'cap' for winter use.

so I'll stick one of those on the top pipe and a vent on the bottom tube to allow air into the collector while it's venting.

Again.. this is only for summer use and easily sealed off with caps for winter use.
