Question about Hayward H Series Pool & Spa Heater 400k Btu Propane Gas Milivolt Ignition H400p1
I have just bought a Haywood propane heater for my hot tub. When 1st turned on, everything was good, then after a while I noticed the hot tub had to be turned on to a faster flo rate to stop the banging and vibrations in the pipe. Now on the fast flo rate its doing it all the time. I have a 2hp pump on a small 9 jet system, so plenty of flo. Can you help please
Wow! That heater that you have is meant for a very large swimming pool, quite a bit oversized, i bet i gets the job done quick though. I have seen before that somebody plumbed in a heater backwards, there are elevated arrows on the black manifold of the heater, make sure inlet and outlet are plumbed in correctly. Make sure you get your water tested. Because the water in your hot tub is no circulating as often (I assume) as a pool would be, the stagnate water sits inside the heat exchanger. What can happen, for instance, if you have high calcium, is the certain tubes inside the heat exchanged can get so clogged with calcium and they are completely shut and the banging noise is due to excessive heat build up inside the heat exchanger. This can ruin a heat exchanger very quickly and the heat exchanger is half the cost of the heater if you were to get a new one. You can check and see if tubes in the heat exchanger are clogged by taking the manifold off of the heat exchanger, and shining a flashlight down the different tubes. However you have to disassemble quite a bit to actually be able to do that.
