When Is It Time for a New Heater or Heat Pump?
Many pool owners overuse their heater or heat pump for extended periods of time. Similar to your pool pump, a heater has many different elements that must work in sync to function properly. When your heater is overexerted, problems arise and repairs and replacements are essential.
Common issues include:
- Malfunctioning pilot light
- Broken ignition switches
- Not reaching optimal water temperatures
- Cycling on and off before reaching the desired temperature
- Leaking water
- Accumulation of dark exhaust
- Excessive heat damage
- General wear and tear
- Unusual sounds
How Does Your Gas Heater Work?
The pump draws water out of your pool and into the filter, which then passes to the heater. Inside the heater, the water is heated, then transferred back into the pool.
How Does Your Heat Pump Work?
Like a heater, water flows from the pool through a filter to the heat pump. A fan draws in outside air and directs it over the evaporator coil where the heat in the air is used to heat the water. Then the now heated water is returned to the pool.
