Where is the pressure switch adjustment knob on Hayward h200fd?


if you have an universal pressure switch there is no adjustment. down turning the set point is a poor idea. this can allow the heater to run while the pool pump is only running at half prime or with less water flow. possible over temp situation can easily occur

How do I adjust the pressure switch on my hayward h250 heater


The purpose of the pressure switch is to verify the pool pump is operating properly and water pressure is present in the heating chamber. When water pressure is not present, the heater control system is designed to not allow initiation of flame. The pressure switch is preset at the factory for deck level installations. When the heater is located below the level of the spa or pool, the pressure switch may require an adjustment to compensate for the no-flow static head.

CAUTION: The Hayward Pool Heater is essentially a furnace. A trained technician should be consulted to repair it. DO NOT OPERATE the Hayward Pool Heater without a properly functioning and calibrated water pressure switch. The pressure switch adjustment requires both the pool pump and the heater be operational. As a result, extreme caution should be used during this procedure since sources of energy can not be isolated during the procedure.

The following procedure is recommended to calibrate the pressure switch.

1. The water pressure switch is located behind the front service panel. The pressure switch is typically on the left side, above the burners.
2. Be sure the water filter is clean before making the adjustment.
3. With the pump and heater system switch on, carefully turn the pressure switch adjustment dial clockwise, until a click is heard from the gas valve.
4. Turn the adjustment dial counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
5. Turn the pump off and on several times. The heater should shut off immediately when the pump is shut off. If the heater fails to shut down when the pump is off, repeat the steps above until the pressure switch is properly adjusted.
6. If the adjustment process fails to produce proper results the pressure switch should be replaced.

Pump on sand point well keeps running


I take it its electric. if there is a leak in the supply line somewhere then it wont turn off. if you can cap the supply pipe near the pump and see if it turns off then. if it doesn't then the pressure switch needs adjusting or replacing. good luck

I have a pb4 polaris booster pump that doesn't seem to put out enough pressure to run the pool sweep.


Check your in line screen and wall fitting to make sure they are right. Sometimes the over pressure button on the wall fitting will blow out.

Also, your local pool store should have a pressure stick they will lend you. It connects the end of the hose where the Polaris would be. You should be getting a least 28 psi. If you are getting less, you may have a clog in the booster pump's impeller. If you have that or more, the problem is internal to the Polaris. Verify that the backup valve is working properly as well.

Need flow rate and pressure adjustment proceedure for an old raypack 266 not electronic.thanks murray


The maximum flow rate for that heater to be installed in without a bypass is 125 GPM. The owner's manual can guide you thru gas pressure adjustments or adjusting the set point of the water pressure switch. Please note that unless you are installing the unit below or significantly above the water line you should not have to adjust the pressure switch. Whenever you do adjust it, be certain to turn the pump on and off several times to be certain the heater reacts to the pump condition...failure to shut down when the pump does can be a serious and dangerous condition.
