Considering solar water heat but have concerns.
The typical setup appears to use exposed glass tubes.
Problem with that is pretty consistently we have had golf ball size hail storms just about every year to every other year and baseball size hail every 5 to 8 years.
Can these things take hail stones or do I need to devise a way to shield it with chicken wire or something?
Or are these things make from tempered 1/4 inch thick glass and I just don' know it?
