|Encino Pool Heater Repair Tips
Since ambient air and ground temperature make our water cool to swim in, most Valley area poolowners have heating systems to warm their pools and spas when needed. However, without the proper periodic cleaning pool heaters can fail to ignite, and a repair call will be necessary. Before you do that though, we recommend that you insure that your filter is clean as it may be the reason why the system isn't firing. If the grids are too impacted with dirt, water flow slows and the safety pressure switch will prevent the furnace from igniting. Your filter gauge should reflect no more than 10psi over clean readings. For a baseline, mark the gauge with an indelible marker as a point of reference upon initial cleaning. As dirt accumulates, the needle will rise. If too dirty - sometimes 15psi over clean reading, backwash or disassemble and recharge with diatomaceous earth. Viola, you may find your furnace fires right up, and you've just saved yourself the cost of a service call. We do not advise that you try to service the heater yourself though, as this should be handled only by a professional. No matter if you live in Van Nuys, Studio City, North Hollywood or Encino, pool heater repair should be easy, and with us it is - just give us a call and we'll be happy to come out to your home, diagnose your system and propose a repair.
