Solution For Your Heater Repair Needs!

When shopping around for the best pool or spa heater, consider that each major manufacturer has weathered decades of technological development that leads to their current offerings. In the 1970's when I was a kid, I used to love swimming in my backyard pool, and watch my dad test the chems for proper pH and Chlorine levels; not to mention an occasional test for Total Alkalinity. And playing around the pool equipment pad was not left out of my places to explore - what a fascination I had with that generally off-limits area. Who would have known that I would feel comfortable enough one day to venture to the neighborhood pool store and apply of a job that could supplement my future vision as a pool heater repair technician. Even though I had grown up with lots of parties and friends in that pool, jumping off the diving board and filled with great memories, I didn't realize that I had- by simple exposure as a kid - incorporated a love for all things swimming, family, backyard, barbeques, fun. And when I had built forts or simply ran off to hide near the pool equipment - not something I would recommend to kids! - it was my first exposure to the timeclock, the copper plumbing (at that time, all either copper or galvanized), the electrical conduit, the gasline, all working to create heat when we had a party, and suction in the skimmer, for our toys to get lost in. Well, it was simply a part of the wonder for me.

Hayward Pool Heater Hayward Pool Heater Natural Gas

Since then, at a young age, I bought a truck and started out in my very beginnings as a pool professional. And now after 31 years, much has been accomplished, many pools serviced, many heaters repaired or replaced, and many happy kids later, we are still going strong and ready to give our years of earned experience to our new clients.

Pool Heater Repair Pentair Master Temp Pool Heater

So after this long seque into some personal history, I can say that the company's above - Hayward, Jandy, Pentair, and Raypak, all hold a strong position as providing quality pool heaters to our industry. Hayward is a stout company from the East Coast who laid low for a while and learned how to bring their unique strengths with stability to their systems, and produce a fine heater. The same goes for Zodiac - parent to Jandy, who's cutting edge ingenuity and commitment to service company installers and repair, has produced an amalgamation of success. Pentair is a strong contender as well, producing very advanced variable speed pumps, led lighting, filters and automation that have kept them an industry leader. And Raypak is an old mainstay who's millivolt heaters of the 70's and 80's I was very much happy to repair, as well as their stepping up with intermittent ignition, and finally coming on board (California Air Quality requirments) to the No Lox heater design. Recently they have made some company changes which has subsidiary names being put on their furnaces - RUUD and Rheem.


All in all, each provide a unique history and offer benefits that have allowed them to remain chosen for whatever pool or spa application seems a good fit. A consideration that should not go underestimated, is compatibility with the current equipment set. Some clients like to stay uniform, with the same gear throughout - pump, filter, heater, automation, saline system. But it can be equally said that with enough knowledge, one company's product may be better has a hybrid mix.

Agoura Pool Heater Repair - Agoura CA
If the heat exchanger gets coated with soot, the furnace cannot exhaust properly and will cause the flame to be deprived of oxygen, which will in turn create more soot in a downward cycle.

The newer pool heaters no longer utilize a standing gas pilot that is always burning and awaiting for the homeowner to turn on the gas valve with the throw of a switch.

Indoor installation does have unique considerations that outdoor otherwise can avoid.

Santa Monica Pool Heater Repair - Santa Monica CA
Swimming pool heaters are sometimes fickle, and one reason is the outdoor environment which brings little creatures who nest in the cabin of the heater to keep themselves safe and warm.

Porter Ranch Pool Heater Repair - Porter Ranch CA
Having the appropriate water pressure is a part of normal heater operation as it allows for the water to rise in temperature per manufacturer specifications. If flow is too slow, a safety switch will notify the control board to shut down operation until proper flow is established. This is one of the many safety and control switches that can fail and require a service call to confirm failure.

Valley Village Pool Heater Repair - Valley Village CA
Another thing we'd be happy to discuss with you is periodic pool heater maintenance. In dense shrubbery or hillside ivy, those pesky little animals are very intent on finding a habitat, and pool heaters seem to be a great place. The twigs and debris that bring into the heater body, however, will cause improper ignition of the gas. We recommend an annual heater tune up in this type of situation. Also, a metallic netting helps too.

The efficiency rating on pool heaters are rated by BTU's, British Thermal Units, and is a standard way to see how much of the heat created by the burners are transferred into warm water versus how much escapes into the atmosphere.

Though it does get hot in the summer, swimming pools and spas are still generally outfitted with a pool heater for those cooler days and to reach that ideal temperature in the water. You will need the heater to operate at peak efficiency and so we offer an annual service to insure clean burners and gas system. This also reduces the carbon that is released into the atmosphere as a byproduct of a poor ignition. Always seek a blue flame as that represents clean burn.
