If you are going to have them installed, then the installers will know what size pipe to use.

I'm moving your question to an appropriate forum. "Boilers" is not it.

[edit: on the other hand, I can't seem to find a 'solar' category ! So here it will stay until I do...]

3/4" pipe is fine for most solar applications, unless you have a ton of panels.
Often 1/2" is more than enough

What are they for? Space heating or domestic hot water?

Yeah, I agree, but I see next to ZERO activity in that forum...
