As you learn about solar panel systems, it’s helpful to know some of the key efficiency and performance terms. These will help you when you comparison shop.
If you’re pondering a solar panel system, learn about the basics before you contact a professional to assess your home's suitability for solar power.
Leasing solar panels may sound like a nice way to get green energy into your home, but count the cost before you sign that lease instead of buying outright.
Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).
The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home.
Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.
OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !
You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.
Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.
It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.
Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

We would (and have) recommend
He came to my home to do a free estimate. I felt the free estimate meeting was a slick sales pitch wherein he used "formulas" with no explanation for what the numbers represented - I had to be assertive and repeat myselt to get real information on what the numbers in his formulas represented (kw hours, hours of sunlight, etc).
He gave my contact information to other companies after I'd instructed him not to. I received phone calls at home saying the salesman asked them to call me when I clearly instructed him via email not to do this.
He has asked repeatedly to get in touch with my income tax preparer to discuss tax credits after I'd told him repeatedly I had no interest in him speaking to my tax preparer. This is pushy.
If solar makes sense, and if the deal this company offers is a good one, then the facts should be enough alone.
The information presented should make sense without the salesman-games.
I would assume that most folks that choose solar are intelligent enough to deal with real facts and make choices without the sales games. I will seek other companies with which to discuss solar options and costs or just do without.
The installers came out and measured before installation to make sure they would be ready to go on installation date. They were very friendly and polite and on time.
Our panels have been in for about 3 months now and are working great. I'm confident that if I did have any questions, I'd get the same responsiveness I did prior to purchasing. I'm glad we chose to go with a local small business over the "larger" company as I'm sure we wouldn't have gotten the same customer service.
