    Default Best way to mount Solar Hot water heater panels

    I picked up three Colt Inc C-141C 3' by 8' solar collectors.. They are in good shape, but the brackets used to mount them to the roof were removed and not provided. What is the best way to attach these to the roof? Is there a way it can be done for material cost around 100 bucks or less?

    I have a sloping roof, so I just screwed a 2x4 at the bottom and it has rested there for over 10 years.
    My connections are flexible so there is never a problem shifting around. This allows for easy removable for roof repair
    and I didn't have to drills too many holes.
