How much, installation and permits included, should a high quality 4X10
solar thermal panel with a photovoltaic panel running the circulating pump
with a 80 gallon storage tank cost in total? Install is in South Florida so
only need minimal freeze protection.
How much for a pool solar system installed with eight 4X10 panels with an
I'm talking installed by the same company. I don't want to buy a system then
hire a plumber.

Typical installation around Ft. Myers is about $700 for pool system.
I installed my own for MUCH less.

I just had several estimates in the Tamp bay area ranging in price from
$900 to $900 for a solar pool heater. Materials alone to match the high
priced '''best''' system was about $400 which puts the labor cost and
markup in the $500 range. Anyone capable of reading and understanding high
school level English/instructions should be able to do a DIY install.
I personally would advise against a 'store bought' solar hot water heater
system in the Tampa area. I have yet to find anyone that will give an
'excellent' recommendation to any of the contractors around here but have
heard a plethora of horror stories.
Hope this was helpful!
