We can service 

gas pool heaters Melbourne

Melbourne Pool Servicing specialise in everything gas pool heating. We have been exclusively servicing Hurlcon and AstralPool heaters for over 10 years. Recently we have branched out to service other gas pool heaters brands such as Raypak, Pentair and Hayward. Both Andy and Rich are licensed gas plumbers whose work is certified and insured by the Victorian Building Authority. 10 years of experience means we have literally seen it all in terms of faults and fixes for any gas pool heater. Possible faults with an ageing gas pool heater include corrosion damage, explosive ignition, banging on start-up, leaking and also the general wear and tear faults. A well-maintained gas pool heater should last between 6-10 years but with a well maintained chemically balanced pool there’s no reason why they shouldn’t go over the 10-year mark. 

 

Most pool shops and technicians don’t service the products that they sell, however we do. Having a vast range of knowledge of all the products we sell and stocking all the spare parts for the products we sell ensures a happy end user.

Previously known to our loyal client base as Leyland Plumbing, we thought with a natural expansion to modern day pool servicing as well as our continued passion to service and maintain pool/spa equipment Melbourne Pool Servicing was an appropriate step forward for us in the pool industry.

Our team currently comprises of Andy and Rich (company directors), Bianca (head of administration) and we acquire the services of Royal Power Electrical for all of our on-site electrical needs.

gas pool heater repairs

Have you attempted to open your pool pump repairs for the summer or after a long period without use, only to find that it’s not reaching your desired temperature? Even though a pool is used to keep people cool during the warmer months, its temperature still needs to be maintained. Sometimes gas lines break or leak, which will cause your gas pool heater to work inefficiently or stop working altogether.

Don’t wait for your pool temperature to spoil the fun. When you hire Melbourne Pool Servicing to conduct your gas pool heater repair, you can trust that the job will be done right. We can inspect the gas lines and your heating unit to troubleshoot issues that may be preventing your water from being heated to the right temperature.

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.
