Starting to attach the collector inlet pipes to the pumps. The ability to use leftover Pex-AL-Pex for a lot of these runs made everything much easier due to make all kinds of turns and hold the shape

A nice shot of all the piping going into and out of the tank.

Right collector finished and starting on the left. I used some of the flashing material leftover from the absorber fins to make a little "roof" over the right collector. The slope should keep rain and snow off.

Absorber run on the left collector. Spacing the runs got a little tricky towards the bottom but turned out fine. Cheap $1 spray paint was used on everything, I figured even under stagnation conditions it would never see temps high enough to make it worth considering high-temp paint.
