Our days are still warm enough to keep the water in your pool comfortable, but the evenings are just cool enough to warrant a little extra help. However, if you are just starting your pool heater again after a summer hiatus, then you may find that the heater needs repair. It is not advisable that you start digging around your pool heater on your own. Instead, call the experts who can resolve your repair issue: the pros from DB Heating & Cooling, Inc.
Common Pool Heater Repairs
Here are some of the more common pool heater repairs we see in Palm Coast, FL:
- Problems with the pressure switch – the pressure switch is a safety and control switch that makes sure water is flowing into the pool heater before allowing the heater to turn on. If the switch is malfunctioning, it may not sense the water and as a result, won’t allow the heater to turn on.
- Problems with the bypass valve – sometimes excess water can get inside your pool heater, and this water needs to be expelled. The bypass valve is responsible for expelling the excess water, and if it isn’t working properly, your heater may flood and shut down.
- Overheating – every pool heater is equipped with not just one but two high limit switches. These switches are located on the outlet manifold. These switches shut down your pool heater once they sense that the heater has gotten too hot. If they malfunction, they may not be able to do this, and your pool heater may overheat and shutdown involuntarily.
- Problems with the thermostat – if you get into your pool and find that it is much chillier than it should be, there could be an issue with the thermostat. Your pool heater’s thermostat is the control center for your pool heater, and if it is malfunctioning, the pool heater will, too.
