Question about Pentair PUREX MINIMAX HEATER; THERMOSTAT, 60 CAPILLARY - 072022

1 Answer

I have the Triton Purex 500M pool/spa Gas Heater(Natural gas) and the valve was replaced last year, I opened my pool three weeks ago and the heater was working but turing its self on and off then the wind blew the pilot out so it took me several attempts to get the ignitor to spark and relight the pilot and now the pilot is lit but the heater is not kicking on, the pool option on the switch is out so I have been using the spa option to heat my pool so I am thinking either the switch is out or water might not be flowing correctly. I just cleaned my filters out and the pressure on my pump is around 100 psi which is usually fine, I have a sand filter, and it is still not kicking on even with the pilot lit and ok, so I am wondering what is going on..... also we just had a bad wind and rain storm and I do have a hood stack so does water have anything to do with it, if so what can I do to in the future to prevent this, I live in Idaho where we can only use our pool five months out of the year and it is closed the rest of the year, thankyou so much for your time and help with this, Amanda Anaya

This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.

This is usually either the Thermal Overload Cutoff (an inline fuse to prevent overheating) which costs $13.50 through poolcenter.com, or it is that you are not getting enough water pressure through the heater. There are sensors that will shut down the heater if there is not enough water flow. Is your filter clean so enough pressure/flow is happening?

Have a Triton Millivolt pool heater pilot is lit and nothing!!


Low out put voltage from the pilot generator and/or an open circuit in the control circuit...the most common is a bad pressure switch (dirty filters can hamper pressure switch operation).
