How to install a solar panel without having to remove your toilet flange

You probably don’t need a solar-powered toilet flapper to install solar panels on your bathroom, but if you want to get a bit creative with the installation, this article is for you.

Weighing in at about 12 pounds, the toilet flanged installation uses a two-foot diameter aluminum rod, attached to a steel frame, to securely attach the solar panel to the wall.

You can then hook up the solar system to the toilet.

A DIY version of this toilet flanger installation could be a good idea if you have a big outdoor shower with lots of exposed shower heads, for example, or if you plan to use the toilet to cool a large water heater.

You’ll also want to make sure your plumbing is properly installed, like a system of faucets and faucet fittings.

In this video, you can see how the installation is done.

The toilet flanges will need to be removed and installed in the new bathroom before the solar panels are installed.
