    Whats the chances of the panel cracking?

    I am doing the panels around 9am in the morning when its about 20c and usually on an overcast day!

    I take it if you turned up in 32c at 4pm in the afternoon and started to clean em you could run into problems!!!!???

    What would happen if there was a shower of rain, would that crack it?
    I think it should be quite difficult to crack a solar panel. I think they are designed to with stand the weather.
    Has a customer said you have caused it to crack?

    [SIZE=medium]Best make sure your insurance covers you for solar panel cleaning actually being worked on just in case something goes badly wrong and/or you are accused of causing panels to break down which they can often do.[/SIZE]

    I visually inspect them for damage.

    Wear massive rubber gloves and just crack on. Well I hope they don't crack :)
