Solar hot water - Blow torch and glue

Blow torches set fire to stuff.

It's raining a lot today. My new solar collector was still wet from yesterday's leaks and with the weather the way it is, doesn't look like drying any time soon. What I needed was a way to dry it and also a way to melt the glue to repair the leaks. So I did what anyone in my position would do. I pointed a blow torch at it. Just a tiny one. And just for a tiny time. And I melted just a tiny bit of my collector. But it was enough to make it look like a shower head when I put water in it to test it.

I wish I had some kind of drawing board to go back to.
