If you are a pool owner, having a heater has many benefits. You can enjoy your pool all year and know that it is always the perfect temperature. Here are the three most common issues that Titusville, FL pool owners might have with their heaters.
The Pool Does Not Reach the Desired Temperature
This is one of the most common problems, and there can be several reasons for it. It can be that the thermostat or another switch is faulty. It might also be that your heater is too small for the pool.
The Heater Is Leaking
Over time, chemicals in your pool can damage the heat exchanger in your unit. In addition, low temperatures can also damage it. It could also be a faulty gasket, but to be sure, you should call a pool heater specialist to properly diagnose the issue.
The Water Flow Is Low
Several things can cause low water flow, including a dirty filter, dirty pump basket, or a defective pressure sensor. If you have too many water features running at once, it can also reduce the water flow. If you address the filter and overload issues and the problem persists, it might be time to call a professional.
The Pilot Will Not Light or the Electric Heater Switches Off
If you experience a pilot light that will not ignite with a gas heater or an electric one switches off before the pool reaches the set temperature, it is best to call a professional. These issues can indicate a faulty system that is tripping safety mechanisms. If this is the problem, you should not use the system until you have a professional look at it.
