Question about Lite On Laars Lite 2 Heaters: 250,000BTU MV Heater
When I circulate water through my heater, it leaks out of the bottom. Appears that there is an internal leak or crack. This just happened as I opened my pool after a Canadian winter.
Could also be a pin hole in the small copper tube that runs from the top of the heater to the thermostat. This has happened to me a few times. Small hole, but lots of water comes out. Get some 3/8" copper tubing and 2 compression fittings. It is easy to replace this tube. The only pain is that you have to take off the top of the heater to reach the end of the tube.

Don't throw your heater away just yet.
This year I opened the pool and I had the same experience.
The heater manifold cracked due to water freezing inside of it.
The water is leaking from the top and running down to the bottom of your heater, look at your owners manual there should be a diagram illustrating its inside components are.
I wasn't going to pay $1400 US dollars again for a heater.
I took the manifold off and took it to a weld shop, for $65 it was welded perfectly.
I reinstalled the manifold and other components and I'm up and running again

Was the heater winterized? If not,, you may be right because of possible freezing . The system may have frozen Is there leakge anywhere wlse? If it was winterized and the system was completely drained, You may be just seeing condensation. If its rinning out , yhrn condensation is out of the question and you may have to get a new heater.It's expensive, but you should consider a timer that will keep the water circulating at a no freeze temp. good luck and check for water coming from some other location that might be misleading.
