If water is flowing thru the panels/collectors, (look to see if the valves are opened to allow water to the collectors) if the water is flowing and it is flowing through the collectors/panels, then the water is being heated!

If you are saying the controller is set for solar operation and the sun is shining, and there is a "Demand" for heat or a "Call" for heat, and the Valve is NOT turning to allow the water to the panels, then you have a problem with either the Hayward/Goldline Controller or the Valve Actuator.

Good Luck

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

Check the valve actuator toggle switch. It is 180 degrees out. If the toggle switch is in the up postion flip it down or vise versa.

SOURCE: heater will not turn on.

If the heater does not even attempt to light, it's most likely the Digital Display Temperature Controller (DDTC) Circuit Board.

SOURCE: error code 126

This is a bad thermister or heat sensor. It mounts in your water manifold and if it goes bad no error will show. The bad sensor is telling the heater that the water is to hot and it wont let the heater fire. This is a farley inexpensive part and easy to change out. With a new one it should read the proper temp and call for heat then fire the heater. Good luck.

SOURCE: Our H Series pool heater is igniting but is not

This could be a bad thermostat or temp sensor, or it could be a water flow problem. Ether the by-pass in the heater or on the outside pipes. It could just be the filter is dirty expecally if it is a DE filter. These should be taken apart and cleaned at least once a year. I hope this helps.

Solar Air Heating - You Can Cut Utility Costs and Save Money


Solar energy is becoming very quickly recognized as one of the best alternatives to fossil fuels It is an abundant and renewable natural resource. It can be used to save energy in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Solar technologies will use the sun's energy to provide heat, hot water, light, electricity, and cooling, for homes, businesses, and industry.

Many major advancements have been made in the solar technology fields over the recent years. Solar air heating is becoming more attractive than ever before now that it is becoming lower in cost and more efficient. Solar energy is easily the cleanest and most inexhaustible of any of the known energy sources. The many variations in energy prices have fueled interest in alternative fuels such as solar energy. Demand for solar energy has been increasing exponentially as heating, cooling and many other energy costs continue to skyrocket.

Solar air heating and solar water heating are two examples of solar thermal technologies which produce heat, but not electricity. Solar air heat is best suited for installation in new construction and existing houses. Solar panels for any type of heating should be placed on a south-facing pitched roof, free of shade. The angle should be between 20 and 50 degrees. They may also be mounted on an angled frame on the ground or on a flat roof. Solar air collectors (the devices that heat up the air using solar energy) can directly heat individual rooms. They also can potentially pre-heat the air passing into a heat recovery ventilator or the air of an air-source heat pump. Solar heating panels can be one of the most cost effective ways to reduce your utility bills. This will make a positive contribution towards a better environment. Solar air heating systems often use large bins filled with rocks that store heat (although this method is becoming rare due to problems associated with controlling moisture and mold growth in the rock).

Energy Policy Act has implemented a 30% tax credit for consumers who chose to install solar water heating systems. State and local government programs are now being put in place to encourage the use of solar energy. Cash incentives are available for those that integrate solar energy technology as an alternative energy source. The Department of Energy (DOE) is working to design even more cost-effective solar heating systems and to improve the longevity of the materials used in those systems. Other incentive programs now include offering homeowners tax credits for solar panel installations and for solar heating systems. With solar power you will save money, increase your property value, help protect the environment and help to create a more secure America by reducing our dependence on foreign energy fuel sources.

A great solar heating system will save energy, reduce utility costs, and produce clean energy.

There are many variables to this......

How big is your pool how big is your solar system.

Solar temps don't rise quickly ever, and definitely not when the temp is only 75 outside.

You need 80-90 degrees or more on the roof to see quicker results, if the water temp is currently at 70 and it's 75 degrees outside and 80 on the roof you will barely get any change.

You will also lose the heat at night due to lower temperatures.

Once it's hotter outside and warmer at night you get the gains and keep them.

Hope this helps

How to setup a diverter valve for above ground


If you want all your water going thru the solar heater before re-entering the pool, you'll need to plumb the end of your filter to the solar heater, then the water exiting from the solar heater would go where the filter hose did go back into the pool. Hope this helps.

Have a supreme Solar - Solar conroller for swimming pool. Roof indicator light is flashing and system wont turn on, (not even in manual mode) Pump working OK though. What does this mean


it sounds like you have a problem with the air temperature sensor on the roof. either you have some damage to the wiring going to the sensor, or the sensor itself has gone bad. Also, check the wiring inside the control box, make sure the connections are tight. If possible, follow the wire from the control box all the way to the sensor. If the wire looks good and there is no damage at all, the sensor probably needs to be replaced.
