Currently I have 8 of those sheets on my roof. I have two questions regarding these:
6 of those sheets face north, 2 south. Would it be more efficient to simply disconnect the 2 facing south? I’d imagine that the 2 south facing sheets would drag down the system, rather than help it a little (due to it radiating the heat out of the water)
Is there an optimal way of configuring these sheets, i.e. should you put them all in series (lowest flow rate), all in parallel (highest flow rate) or somewhere in between?
My thinking is that with a low flow rate, your automatic pool cleaner will have a though time moving nicely. However, putting them all in series would force the water optimally through each set of pipes, therefore increasing efficiency. My thinking is that this benefit would be immaterial if all these pipes are at more of less the same level above the ground.
