All depends on the amount of water in the spa or pool, and the size of the heater in BTU's. The time for "Heat Rise" will vary and the answer you are looking for can't be provided with amount of info you provided. But if a general rule of thumb - the closest answer: Spa with a gas heater, 1 degree about every 90 - 120 seconds. Electric heater (vary's by KW) on average: cold to hot = 8-13 hours. Swimming pool with gas heater (no suggestion for electric) about 1 degree temp rise every 90 minutes.

SOURCE: Heater cycles on and of, pool/spa does not reach desired temp

hello, It sounds like you may not be getting circulation thru the heater. Make sure the valves are open to allow water to pass thru the heating system. Some systems use a bypass on the heater so there is not a lot of wear on the coil system in the heater. If it is not circulating it will get too hot and the safety shut down will occure. If you are getting water circulating thru the heater, then the thermocouple or auto start igniter system is not working correctly. It is trying to start and can't then recycles. If the burners are igniting on the startup and then shutting back down you may have a bad control unit or thermal sensor unit. Since the unit is gas have a professional service it for you. Good Luck, RAC

If the unit is lighting then shutting off then repeating it isn't rectifying, means not sensing the flame. May have a bad flame sensor or ignition control. I'm guessing your AGS is indicated on the GUI also.

SOURCE: Pool and Spa Heaters pros and cons

Firstly, the water volume in a pool is huge, so heating them need big amount of energy: fuels or electric, which is up to the kind of water heaters the pool owner use. Secondly, the water temperature requirement is not high:less than 30 C degree will be OK. In other words, the terminal temperature of heat pumps (if used for pools) will not be too high. These two reasons bring the application of heat pumps for swimming pools. In fact, you will say "what an ideal product designed for pools" when you know the performance of this kind of products. The COP of swimming pool heat pumps reaches 5, which means 1 electric can bring 5 heating energy. The number of traditional water heaters (broilers or electric water heaters) will not be more than 1. Nowadays, swimming pool heat pumps are popular in many Europe countries. People install them for pools of their houses. Of coures, more and more pools in gym are also heated by heat pumps. Even in aquaculture farms, heat pumps are installed for fishes, for they need stable and warm water to grow quickly.

Problem with jandy rs 4. Pool heat pump Is running. We didn't turn it on and the heat pump light on the control panel is not lit


Does your pool gave an attached spa?

IF it does have a spa, dies it also have a spa side remote?
If so the first step would be to unplug the spa side remote from the back of the board.
If the issue stops then you need a new spa side remote if it persists then it nah be be main circuit board or relay for the heat pump.

Hi! I have a Hayward Pro pool/spa system with Jandy valves and I'm trying to figure out how to switch them from pool to spa. Either I empty the spa or I'm heating the whole pool. Help please!


This is tough cause I can't see the valve setup. I have to assume they are manual valves. Normal operation probably takes some water out of the pool and spa than puts it back into both. To heat the spa, set the intake valves(the ones in front of pump) to take water from only the spa. Set the jets(valve(s) on output side of filter) to send water back to only the spa. The pool will be out of the loop. Normal operation usually has water taken out of pool and spa than put back into both. Make sure to put more water back into spa than you take out, (Adjust valve)

I want to heat the pool from the spa. I have the spa and spa heat on but the spillover wont come on when I have the spa on. When I turn the spa off the heat goes off. What do I do


When your system is put into Spa mode the system draws water from the spa only to the heater to keep the spa at temp, this is why the overflow doesn't work and why you can not heat the pool in spa mode. If you could heat the pool this way it would take a very long time, since the spa is smaller then the pool. You can heat the pool and spa at the same time in pool mode. Water is pulled from the pool, heated and goes back into the pool and spa.
