Should turbines be level?
Last Updated 9 years ago

For optimal operation, the turbine should be installed level to the ground.  The turbine can also fail prematurely if the wobble continues over the life of the turbine.  

The turbine head may have shifted slightly during transportation and minor adjustments may need to be made.  A slight wobble can be adjusted by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the lowest point of the turbine upward.   

If the base is not level, it may be necessary to make some adjustments.  The pitch setting may need to be changed.  The base (elbow) may be made level by adjusting the pitch to a different setting. The bottom of the elbow will turn clockwise (the elbow will move along the "seam") to align roof pitch number with the indicator line on the flashing.
