Common Faults

Gas pool heater won’t ignite/Heater starts up then cuts out after 5 seconds

Could be multiple issues due to poor flame sense at pilot, water flow, split burners, water ingress in the heater itself, corrosion damage to temperature sensors. All issues which we can solve on the day of the service.

Gas pool heater is leaking

We see this all the time from various components from the heater. High chlorine is the number 1 killer of gas pool heaters across the state. Leaking from components such as washers, water pressure switches, manifolds and heat exchanges is a regular occurrence with most leaks being fixable.

Gas pool heater has low gas

Low gas occurs when the pipes aren’t sized correctly for the house, gas meter is too small, gas service regulator hasn’t been turned up properly or there may be a blockage in the gas line (water or dirt). If you know you have low gas it is advised to get back the plumber who issued the compliance certificate for the unit and get them to test operating gas pressures.

Gas pool heater makes a bang on start-up

Caused almost certainly by a split to the main burner. If this occurs then the heater needs attention immediately and more than likely requires a re-build or burner upgrade depending on the make and model.

Gas pool heater ignites and runs for 10 minutes then cuts out.

On the Pentair Mastertemp range of heaters this can be due to the thermal regulator having corrosion damage and therefor needing replacement.

Gas pool heater is noisy

This is usually due to water flow issues or the gas to air mixture not being correct. Check that water flow has no restrictions form the filter or skimmer box. If no success call us for one of our licensed gas plumbers to assist with setting up the heater properly with a combustion analyser.

Gas pool heater has carbon build up on the inside of the heat exchange

gas to air mixture has been incorrect on these heaters for quite some time and will need what is called a de-carb. A process where we open up the heater and remove all of the carbon from the heat exchange. Then replacing the firebox and main burner in the process to ensure the heater can no run safe. This is a major fix but required for most gas pool heaters with 5+ years of regular use.
