Swimming in warm water when it’s cold outside is nothing less than a comforting dream, and for that, your pool heating system should be working correctly. However, like other machines, your pool heating pump can run into problems giving you chilly goosebumps. If your pool heat pump is not heating the water the way it should, you can look for several possible issues and even fix them yourself.
Let’s dig a little deeper and look at some of the most common problems that are preventing your pool heating pump from working correctly.
1. Low Temperatures
There are limitations to the working capacity of a heat pump. If the outside temperature is too cold, the refrigerant inside the unit might already be close to a freezing temperature. In this case, ice can form and clog your heat pump and prevent it from running.
2. Low water flow
It is one of the most common issues you might face with the heating system. If the water is not being heated up like it should check to see if you have an adequate water supply, check if all the valves are open and also take a look at the water filter. A dirty or clogged filter can be the reason behind heating issues.
3. Power Supply
Is your heating system getting power? If not, then check if you have a tripped breaker, a wiring issue or a bad connection. However, when dealing with electricity, do not run yourself into any trouble. If you are clueless about what you are doing, call a professional electrician to figure out the problem.
Check the settings of your thermostat. As a rule of thumb, always set the temperature higher than the actual temperature of your water. To do this, use a thermometer to check the temperature of your water and then set the thermostat correctly. However, sometimes you can have a bad thermostat and need to replace it to get the heating system working. If you are done with all these troubleshooting steps, but your heating system is still not working, it’s time to get in touch with professionals.
