If you have a by-pass or water control you should be closeing this down to get more water through the heater. This is all I can think of without calling a repairman to disassemble the heater.It sounds backwards but close this valve to get more flow. I hope this helps.

LLD125 pool heater leaking water from inside

My heat exchanger was cracked. I found an old welder who knew how to weld the cracks for $100 vs $900 for a new exchanger,. Also ordered replacement seals for the 2 chambers. I used high temp automotive engine sealant as an additional sealant precaution. Also inspected tubes and cleaned corrosion. Works fine last 3 years. Takes some mechanical skills.

I seem to be getting rust in my spa and was wondering if the heat exchange tube assembly in a Teledyne Laars Series 2 modelESG could be the problem?

Not the excanger but the headers that connect to it. This is a long played argument between should I run water through my heater constantly and have the water erode my pipes or isolate it an have the stagnent water rust away in the header. I have long been of the school that says keep water running through heater. The damage it will do is minimal if your chems are kept right and the rust that forms the other way not only hurts the heater but it will stain the plaster when it gets into the pool or spa.

What type of pipe is needed on the inflow of the teledyne laars?

Most pool stores carry a set of two pipes used for older heaters. They are about 17" long, stainless steel, and bend 90 degrees about 8" from one end. They are usually refered to as heat sinks. The fact that the old one has pin holes in it would lead me to believe using PVC would be a bad idea.

Pool Heater will not fire up.

Older heaters with "Hot - Cold" turn control can attract spider webs etc. I had exactly your problem and just blew the inside of the control switch with compressed air to clean it out. My heater fired up after that clean up procedure. Hope this solves your problem!
