    Tapcon Hex Head Screw
    1-1/4" Tapcon Hex Head Screws are used with solar pool heaters to fasten mounting hardware to Barrel or Flat Concrete Tile, or Concrete Roofs.

    Solar Pool Heater Top Heater Side ViewThe mounting hardware is attached to the tile using Tapcon Screws. This requires drilling a pilot hole in the tile before inserting the screw. 

    Use a 3/16” masonry drill bit.  DO NOT drill into the substrate below the tile; doing so will cause a roof leak.  The mounting screws should be positioned 1” to 2” above the bottom edge of the tile.  This will allow a space between the tile and the substrate due to the overlap in the tiles. 

    On barrel tile roofs, try to lay out the panels so that the mounting holes fall on the tops of the barrel tile.  This can be accomplished by using  6” rubber couplings where additional spacing is required; cut the coupling to the correct length.

    Refer to the Vortex Install Manual for details on using Tapcon Hex Screws.
