How does heater work to keep freeze off pool in winter

Since temps are dropping at night, pool often turns on and water circulates. Last night, pump running, no water circulation. Is this the heater? does it run on electricity or gas? I have inherited this home and pool. Propane tank is empty. do I need it filled to keep pool from freezing in winter?

What state do you live in, what is the brand name and model number of the heater. If you live in a state that gets cold during the winter, call you local pool store and schedule a closing. If the pump is running and water is not circulating, most likely the pump lost prime or your filter needs to be backwashed, or there is some debris in the impeller.

It has been in the 20's here we normally shut down pool heater but keep pump running. I tried to start the heater and get the SMS error. When temps get back into to 60's it should be fine again right?


Actually it should be working again when the water temperature gets above about 36*F. Keep that pump running and pay attention to it. Running water can freeze if it stays in the 20's for a few days.

Pool spa heater when freezing temp


It normally will heat up with pump moving water, once the threshold is achieved - system will come out of its Freeze protection mode and will begin to work as programmed. If there is a heat call, heater will come on.
You can also locate the sensors, both the Water & Air (they need to be very close in temperature for this to work) then place them in water warmer than the actual ambient temp, & above the temp that triggers "Freeze".

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

Last winter our hot tub tripped and my son tried to restart it not realizing the water was frozen inside the sta-rite gas heater. When he tried to start it the casing cracked. Where can I buy a new casing?


You can order these through your distribtour or go to the factory. They can be found on line. Their may be other problems also so see if you can run it enough to find these. You may need a new heater and it is tough to buy expensive parts to find you need a lot more. Your son had nothing to do with this the casing will crack from the freezing and when he tried to start it that is when it showed up. Ether way you go look into a freeze protection on the tub so it starts automaticaly when the temp drops. Good luck and let me know if I can help as you go.

Swimming pool solar heater panels freeze problem


Depending on the manufacturer, your solar panels may be replaced under warranty. Our installer says that once the panels begin leaking, they tend to deteriorate fairly rapidly. For example, three leaks the first year, 7 leaks the second year, 30 leaks the third year.

Many solar panels are warrantied against freezing, but that is not likely to be the future of the warranties, because they inevitably DO freeze and leak.

If there are just a few leaks, it is easier to fix them - a Fafco Solar panel repair kit can usually be bought from your installer for about $25.00.

If you turned the pump on to manual to circulate the water through the panels, that should prevent a freeze - but will cost you the electrical cost to run the pump.

Our experience has been that it is better NOT to drain the panels - we had many fewer leaks the years we have not drained the panels, despite occasional hard freezes in our part of California.

In addition, your rooftop installation should help radiate some heat up to the panels to keep them from freezing.

Check your warranty and get the panels replaced if there are more than a few leaks.

Understanding how to use spa with freeze protection on


freeze protection will always be on. when you're done using the spa just push the heater/spa button. it will turn off. when ever the air temp drops below 37-39 degrees the air sensor will tell the system the it's getting cold and it will kick on the pump. you can change the it under settings menu if you want other pumps to come besides the filter pump
