Digital pool heaters have certainly advanced over the years and with that advancement have simplified the tasks of many a pool repair technician. Self-diagnostics and digital readouts, to name just a couple of innovative features, certainly take the guess work out of pool repair. Do you have low flow in your pool, a digital pool heater will tell you. Is your heater too hot or the pool too hot, the digital heater tells you. Is your pool filter dirty or clogged, you guessed it, your digital heater will tell you. Though the functionality of your digital pool heater is top notch, there are some things that your digital pool heater simply cannot alert you to nor provide solutions to.
To begin with, if your heater is leaking water, the source of the leak can be from a specific location or even be condensation itself. If you have a good amount of water leaking from the heat exchanger on your digital heater, then, more often than not, the internal components of your heater are failing in one way or another and should be repaired immediately before causing more serious damage.
Since most heat exchangers are made up of copper, which is quite soft, low pH balances in your pool and excessive salt can cause damage to the exchanger and even reduce its life expectancy. If a technician determines that your heat exchanger is not the source of the leak, then perhaps the headers, or header gaskets are the culprits. Whatever the source of the leak may be, rest assured pool owners need to call in the professionals immediately to disassemble the heater and properly identify and diagnose the problem at hand. That’s where the experts at Metroplex H20 Solutions come in. Our highly skilled and trained technicians are equipped to perform all necessary inspections and diagnoses to get to the root of the problem and provide an effective and efficient solution as quickly as possible.
Further, your digital pool heater hasn’t the capability to identify why the heater has no power at all. Should you notice that your heater has no power we highly recommend you contact our technicians who can check the voltage and specifically the line voltage going into your transformer with a voltage meter to determine whether or not the voltage being used is accurate. They will also diagnose your transformer to determine whether or not it may need replacing and further inspect all the breakers, the pump switch and/or the power supply to the heater, and the control module as well. Whatever the problem may be, you can be certain that our qualified technicians will find it and resolve it in no time at all.
Finally, your digital pool heater cannot define or identify what is causing your pool heater to make noises. Heater noises can be the result of many things, but more often than not is attributed to the flow of water. If the heater is not getting enough water, the water can become quite hot and begin to boil resulting in an annoying banging sound. In addition, if there is a calcium or a lime build up in your heat exchanger the result will be loud banging noises as well.
Though your digital pool heater can monitor and provide alerts for a multitude of issues, as you can see from our data above, they do not provide sources of solutions to all heater problems. With that said, if you are experiencing problems with your pool heater, then surely you have come to the right place.
