A homeowner from Rancho Bernardo in North San Diego called our office because their pool heater was no longer working. When we showed up at the property we inspected the Hayward H-Series heater. The pool heater had multiple problems including a heat exchanger bundle covered with soot and warped from excessive heat. Rather than replace the heat exchanger, the hi limit switches and attempting to clean the heater burner tray we felt replacing the heater was the better option. Our team removed the old Hayward heater and cleaned the equipment pad. The new Raypak 406A pool heater came with the plumbing connections on the right side of the heater.
The existing pool plumbing was on the left side of the old heater so we flipped the heat exchanger. After moving the heat exchanger we finished the new heater installation. Electrical connections, new gas line and new plumbing were attached to the new pool heater. The gas pressure was then adjusted. Removing the old heater and installing the new pool heater was completed in about three to four hours. We began weekly pool service on their swimming pool the following week.
