Although there are some simple at-home maintenance checks you can do to prevent malfunctions or other issues :

  • Frequently inspect the burner intake ports of the swimming pool heater and then remove any build-up of debris.
  • Check the swimming pool heaters’ burners for fraying or corrosion. If there are any signs of wear and tear, you need to have the burners replaced.
  • Clean your filter regularly as swimming pool heaters require a steady flow of water through the filter to operate smoothly.
  • Make certain that your pool skimmer is clean and unobstructed.
  • Occasionally clean the element by safely removing from the heater and scrubbing with a wire brush.
  • If the heater doesn’t seem to be working, check your main power supply and see if the breaker dedicated to your pool heater has tripped.
  • Get a maintenance check-up at least once every season. The cost of maintaining your pool heater will be minimal compared to the costs of having to replace it before its time!
