Re: Best deck seal for solar cables through-deck?

I installed two solar cables with the Anchor Through-Deck seals two years ago with butyl tape and a drip loop. So far, so good.

Well that will be the way I go too.

But what Stormalong did sound OK too

"Drill a hole slightly larger than the cable. Counter sink it a bit to remove the sharp edge. Pass the wire through and seal it with 3M 4200, Sikaflex, or the caulk of your choice. It will outlast the cable"
