seems to me the static vertical weight of the panels and framing should be no problem, especially since eccentric loading is handled by the outboard supports you will add to the panels when in the 45° position. However, I suspect variable loading from wind will be the problem. If you add diagonal bracing to the 4x4 posts (boards tying the posts to ground running at 45° to vertical oriented perpindicular to the fence) you will have a stronger structure with less deflection.

Is the water being heated for a pool?
