Signs Your Heated Pool Pump Needs Repair

Your pool’s heater might require troubleshooting if it:

  • Refuses to start.
  • Fails to provide sufficient heating.
  • Produces excess noise.


These issues can arise from a couple of different sources. Overuse could be the culprit, but so could dirty filters, defective pressure switches, faulty valves, or improper wiring.

 There are also instances where the heater cycles on and off as it monitors your pool’s chemistry to maintain balance. Proper maintenance can help extend your pool heater’s lifespan to 10 or 12 years. However, heaters from less reputable brands may only last for 3 or 4 years. As a rule of thumb, it’s recommended to schedule an annual maintenance inspection for your pool heater, regardless of age or brand.

Proactive Measures to Prevent Heated Pool Pump Problems

Monitoring your pool’s temperature with a reliable thermostat can help prevent overheating. The frequency of heating your pool depends on its usage, energy consumption, and personal comfort preference. But a malfunctioning pool heater can disrupt this routine, and more importantly, it can pose a safety risk if you attempt a DIY repair.

Tinkering with your pool heater might seem quick and easy, but it’s not the safest route. Dealing with electrical components near water is inherently risky, with safety being most important!

Therefore, instead of trying to fix it on your own, trust the expertise of the professionals at Living Water Pool Company. Our trained team will address your pool heater’s issues promptly and safely, ensuring you can continue enjoying your pool in comfort all year round.

Choosing the Right Heated Pool Pump for Your Pool

Deciding on the optimal pool heater can be tricky. The market predominantly offers two types: gas heaters and heat pumps. Both systems aim to warm your pool, albeit using slightly different mechanisms.

Let’s delve deeper into this:

  • Gas Heaters- These devices pull water from your pool, heat it in a heat exchanger, and then circulate the warm water back into the pool. Gas heaters employ fuel. Generally, propane or natural gas generates heat.
  • Heat Pumps- These devices harness ambient air temperature to heat the pool water. They predominantly operate on electricity or solar power. Due to their reliance on atmospheric temperature, they’re not ideal for regions with temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Hybrid Heating- A hybrid solution, blending a heat pump with a gas-fired system, offers the advantages of both heating techniques. It improves efficiency and reduces operational expenses. 

Choosing the best pool heater for your needs is not straightforward since there’s no one-size-fits-all. Contact us today; our pool professionals can help you make the right decision.

What Factors Should Be Considered When Choosing a Pool Heater?

When discussing your pool heating needs with a professional, consider the following factors:
  • Energy Efficiency: Opt for energy-efficient models like the ETi 400 pool heater with a 96% efficiency rate. They’re eco-friendly and can save you money.
  • Location: Your geographic location, as well as the physical placement of the pool heater, plays a role in deciding the type of pool heater. Heat pumps work best in warmer regions as they draw heat from the air. Also, a heat pump placed in a shaded area might not perform optimally. The availability of a natural gas line could influence your choice too. Propane-run units are ideal if you don’t have access to underground gas lines.
  • Pool Size: The size of your pool can determine the required system. The pool size determines the BTU (British Thermal Unit) needed to heat the water effectively and efficiently.
  • Type of Fuel: Pool heater options include electric, gas, and solar heaters, each with its advantages and disadvantages. It’s essential to consider the availability and cost of fuel in your area.
  • Budget: A pool heater is a long-term investment, so it is important to choose one that fits your budget and provides the desired performance and efficiency.

Common Issues of Heated Pool Pumps

Like any mechanical device, it may encounter occasional problems that need an immediate resolution to maintain your heated pool’s enjoyment.

The following are several issues that you should call a professional pool heat pump repair specialist: 

  • Persistent Lukewarm Pool Water If your pool water fails to warm up adequately, various factors might be causing this. A blocked filter, for instance, can decrease water flow, affecting the heating. In other instances, the pool’s size might be too large for the existing heater. Refer to your heater’s manual to see if a larger model is required.
  • The Heat Pump Continuously Operates If your pool heat pump refuses to switch off, the likely suspect is a malfunctioning heater switch. Alternatively, an improper thermostat setting could be the issue. For a gas heat pump, you should inspect the pilot and gas supply valves. For an electric pump, check for weak electrical connections, corrosion, and the status of the fuse, high limit switch, and pressure switch.
  • Unusual Sounds from the Heat Pump When your pool heat pump begins to emit unusual sounds – such as grinding, clanging, or squealing noises – it’s a strong indicator that something’s amiss. Often, this can be attributed to foreign objects lodged in the system, necessitating back-flushing for removal.
  • Solar Collectors Leakage Many homeowners have embraced solar energy for their pool heating needs, a decision inspired by cost savings and environmental considerations. However, you might encounter leakages from solar collectors, which can be resolved by isolating the leaky tubes. Given the relatively nascent application of solar technology in this context, it’s advisable to engage a professional rather than attempting a DIY fix.
  • Gas Heater Leakage Post Burner Ignition Gas pool heaters are prevalent due to their cost-effectiveness and user-friendly operation. Yet, you may notice a leakage each time you ignite the burner. This could be attributed to a defective internal bypass or an excess water flow. The latter issue can be rectified by installing an additional external heater to regulate the flow.
