Having a pool is wonderful. Having a heated pool is priceless.

This could be a result of a few things. But, it's likely because of an igniter that no longer, you know, ignites. You might be receiving messages like "service heater," or your unit will shut down minutes after turning it on. Don't fret, this igniter and gasket replacement kit should do the trick. First, we ask that you reset the system and then check your heater for any damage. It's possible that it could be malfunctioning from debris or dust. But, it's more likely that either a rodent has chewed through the wires or there's water damage. If it's the former, we suggest cleaning out any droppings before installing this new igniter. If it's water damage, try replacing the igniter first before looking to replace the whole pump. Keep in mind, with some Pentair heaters are angled slightly inward toward the exhaust. This can allow water to fill the combustion chamber. There's a fix for this if it's indeed your problem. We suggest removing the exhaust grill and replacing it with a 4-inch diameter stove pipe. Angle it slightly downward and install your new igniter. For this process, keep a 16-inch pair of needle nose pliers. Trust us, they'll help you out in the long run and save your fingers. Having a heated pool is a priceless experience, but it doesn't come without its risks. When things go awry with your pool heater's igniter, this replacement kit from Pentair should do the trick.
