SOLAR POOL HEATER KIT
REMOVING PANELS FROM THIER SHIPPING BOXES
Vortex solar pool panels are ROLLED UNDER UP UNDER TENSION and packaged in 52" x 17" x 17" cardboard shipping boxes with a maximum of 2 panels per box. When removing solar panels from thier shipping box, be sure to place the box on it's side and always remove one panel at a time.
WARNING: Use caution when removing, the panel may attempt to spring open into an un-rolled position and could cause injury if you or any item is struck by the panel. Two people should carefully unwind the panel to release any tension.
RETURN PANELS TO A UN-ROLLED POSITION
Once the panel is removed from box, it will likely remain in a slightly rolled position. To return the panel to a flat shape, place the panel in full sunlight. Begin to unroll the panel and use a heavy weight, without any sharp edges, in several spots to hold the panel flat or mostly flat. As the sun heats up the panel, its memory will return to a flat configuration. This process typically takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on how long the panel was boxed and the intensity of the sun. Exercise the same warning as above when unrolling the panel, until it has completely returned to a flat position. Carefully remove weights.
NOTICE: VORTEX PANEL TACK WELDS
Vortex solar pool panels are assembled in four 1 foot strips which are connected together with a tack weld. This is to hold the individual panels in place during shipping and handling until they are placed on the roof. In some cases, the tack weld will break apart during rolling, shipping or un-rolling of the panel. This is normal and does not in any way affect the integrity or performance of the panel.
