Should you replace or fix your pool heater?

As a pool owner, you surely have experienced or will encounter at least once that your pool heater will suddenly stop working. We know how expensive it is to replace the pool equipment; it's definitely not a fun experience for anyone and especially if you just bought a home with a pool. But we here are bringing great news: Most of the time, our team of professional pool technicians can repair pool equipment.

So let's break down what are the symptoms of pool heater malfunction, and when should you call for professionals to check out your pool heater?

Like any mechanical system that is constantly exposed to water, it can corrode and will eventually fail over time. Our fantastic repair team has extensive experience and will evaluate your pool heater and find the best solution. But how do you recognize heater malfunctions before you call us or any other licensed professional? Here are some of the symptoms that pool heater is malfunctioning:

1) Your heater doesn't turn on

2)Your heater will start and stop and work intermittently

3)Your pool heater stops before warming the water to your desired temperature

4) The pool heater makes weird noises

5) The pool heater is leaking

6) You smell gas

These are common symptoms that your pool heater needs to be looked up to by a licensed professional.

What can cause pool equipment to malfunction?

The most common reason is FLOW issues. Flow issues can be from a dirty filter, a clogged skimmer, or valves in the wrong position. Often, if the flow is not working, it will also prevent the heater from working.

It might seem like no problem, but blocked dirty pool filters and malfunctioning pool equipment can be dangerous to you and your family.

That's why we recommend always calling your pool maintenance company to look at your pool and determine what and how related to your pool equipment.

The second thing that causes malfunctioning is that the older it gets, the less efficient it is and the greater likelihood there will be problems apparent to you very soon. Our recommendation is to request a pool inspection before buying a house with a pool.
