SOURCE: low pressure reading on Pool Heater

I had this problem with ours last year. I replaced the water pressure switch and it began working fine. We later had a symptom that the blower would start but it would not ignite. The ignitor rod was corroded so I took it out and sanded it with some sandpaper---worked fine...until I dropped it trying to reinstall and it broke. Bought a new one and it works fine now.

Today's problem is related to the blower now.... it is always something, isn't it?!?

SOURCE: Aqualink Chlorine Generator not producing any chlorine

It shounds like that you might have a mustard algae issue. It feeds on chlorine. It is possible that your unit is producing chlorine but the algae is consuming it as fast as it can be made. You will need to do a shock treatment and use an Algae 30. It could be something else, but this is likely. You can google mustard algate treatments and read up on it to see if you have other symptoms.

SOURCE: pool controls act as if not getting power- bad control board?

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

I would suggest you hire a local pool heater technician to diagnose the problem for you. Any decent tech can ID the problem and likely have it fixed in an hour or so and it could be something as simple as a blown transformer which with parts and labor would be under $200; far less than a control board and a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Questions to ask a potential tech would be how much an hour? Is there a service call or travel fee? Do you carry replacement parts on your truck or stock them nearby? How long do you guarantee your work?

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

We have a water softener and I think the water has too much salt and therefore, our Vicks vaporizer has too much steam. Any suggestion?


If your softener is working properly, you should never get any salt in your water. The salt is used only to reactivate the ionic media in your softener cartridge, and during the backflush cycle, all that salt is removed, down to PPM (Parts Per Million) levels.
In any case, even if you used salt water in your vaporizer, it would not increase the amount of steam that it produces. Salt water has a higher boiling point than fresh water. You would also notice salt buildup inside the tank as the water level goes down.
The Vicks Vaporizer works by using only heat to produce steam- the hotter it gets, the more steam it makes. The only practical way to get too much steam outside of a malfunction that causes your heating element to get abnormally hot would be if you live at a very high altitude where water boils at a lower temperature.
High humidity in your home will make it appear as if your vaporizer is making too much steam since the surrounding air will be less capable of absorbing it.
A slightly "off topic" note- if you chose the Vicks Vaporizer/humidifier and have children, you have made a wise decision. Because it produces water vapor by heating instead of ultrasonics, contaminants and minerals (such as salt, iron, calcium, etc.) remain in the tank and will not enter the vapor stream.

I bought our Vicks vaporizer and it worked great the first night we used it. We had added a pinch of salt and it steamed all night. Now my husband is sick and we cannot get it to work correctly. We added...


When you say you added apinch of salt I asked my wife and she says that is the measure that she uses. I doubt that you have to much salt but you can flush out your vaporizer with warm water while the unit is running. I would run two or three times for 1-2 hours each then remove element and rinse withe warm water.Also rinse out container and refill with warm water to fill line,make sure you don't overfill as this can cause the spitting. I would add about 1/4 cup of pure vinegar and let unit run. If you have hard water or high mineral content this should help to clean it.
I hope this helps you but if it doesn't I would return it as defective. Thank you

My vaporizer is barely putting out any steam...is there a way to clean this unit so that it will produce more steam? This is a Vicks 1.5 gal unit.


Is the water in your area soft? If so, add a few pinches of salt. Vaporizers boil the water by running electricity through it. If your water is too soft, no electricity and therefore no steam.

If you have hard water, and the unit must be cleaned, try soaking it in vinegar.

Dec 06, 2009 - found solution: if unit is truely clean, unplug unit then mix about a teaspoon of iodized salt (table salt) to the water. Reconnect unit wait about 1 - 2 minutes, unit will start to make a grinding sound but shortly after steam will produce.

Steam out of exhaust no heater working bolt


You will need to re-post with better symptoms. ON a cold day the exhaust will steam as much of it is water vapor.
However, if the exhaust smells of coolant (sickly sweet) then you have a dying engine in need of a rebuild/replacement.
No heater? In what way is there no heater?
What is a "working bolt?"

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -


No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!
