Need replacement absorber plate

Need replacement absorber plate


My freeze protection for my 4'x10' solar hot water panel failed during a cold night and water froze in the absorber risers.  All the risers split in multiple spots.

Can someone here advise if there is a company in FL that sells just replacement absorber plates?  I found a company in CA that sells them, but the freight charges are a killer.

these ship from florida.

i think they go by truck, so a sales rep would have to get a truck quote if you were interested.

Brian, if the panels are copper, any good plumber should be able to remove the cover and fix the leaks. Plastic ones can be cut and insert couplings can be used.
