This investigation was performed on the request of the Company for production of the solar systems collectors. Subject of the investigation is the segment of the solar stainless steel collector for the heating water in the swimming pool. The system was installed in the private property and was in use until August 2015 (about one month after installation) when it was disconnected for a period of about one month. After that system was restarted again and it was noticed that many cracks appeared in vertical tubes φ8 mm of collector manufactured of S304 stainless steel. In the horizontal pipes made of S316 steel cracks were not detected. This investigation should give the answer what is the reason for appearing of cracks in stainless steel pipes for pretty short period of exploitation.
