Okay Hurricane Matthew came and left and it exposed leaks in the solar array roofing.

outside view of array's exhaust vent



heavy rain and wind got water in.


solution for now is build a tent. 

Use this item from amazon

I got a four by 18 piece for 92 bucks.  I doubled it  to help the sound.
I used a heavy duty staple gun I used the box it was shipped in to peak the roof .

yeah I also used this shelf from target.


http://www.target.com/p/adjustable-3-tier-wide-wire-shelving-chrome-room-essentials/-/A-17136152?lnk=abtest_searchpdp_2


it was 32 bucks.  and I got 2 sets of it along with the 92 for the silver foam.

so 92 + 32+ 32 = 166  allows 2 shelf sets  which can fit a lot of gear.

The silver tunnel moves all air in the right direction  It also cuts sound quite a bit..  but in my case it stops rain fall.

I lost an eth rig to hurricane Matthew but I was lucky  the atx pus got wet and killed the mobo at the 8 pin plug in.

the four gpus are good
the cpu is good
the m2 ssd is good
the ram is good.


one shelf rack and the better foam in a double thickness
















I then did a second tier of water proof   with this



http://www.lowes.com/pd/Reflectix-100-sq-ft-Reflective-Roll-Insulation-48-in-W-x-25-ft-L/3011906

it is 40 bucks for 25 feet and it cut sound down some what but it really work well to prevent leaks.







Job has room for 2 or 3 eth rigs  on second shelf

So  if you want  to make these cheaper..

you can buy this


http://www.lowes.com/pd/Reflectix-100-sq-ft-Reflective-Roll-Insulation-48-in-W-x-25-ft-L/3011906   40 bucks  for 25 ft by 4 feet

http://www.target.com/p/adjustable-3-tier-wide-wire-shelving-chrome-room-essentials/-/A-17136152?lnk=abtest_searchpdp_3   31.50  for 1 set.   63.00 for 2 sets

that is about 100 dollars 

you could fit 10 s9's on first rack
you could fit psu's on second rack

and  you could lay a mover blanket over the silver foil

Yeah 100 bucks and a mover blanket like this http://www.harborfreight.com/72-in-x-80-in-moving-blanket-69505.html


would be safe from fire  since the silver bubble wrap  and the shelf keep the blanket from fire danger.


but if you were look for just sound proof

the two sets of shelf from target are 31.50+31.50 = 63  + 64 +  9 for the moving blanket = 136 for 10 s9's



https://www.amazon.com/Car-Insulation-Deadener-Automotive-Lightweight/dp/B016QUS3MO/ref=sr_1_17?--   64 usd

http://www.target.com/p/adjustable-3-tier-wide-wire-shelving-chrome-room-essentials/-/A-17136152? -----     63 usd


http://www.harborfreight.com/72-in-x-80-in-moving-blanket-69505.html -------------------------------------        9 usd


136 usd  for 10 s9's  no fire issues  and good sound reduction
