When should I service my solar pool heater?
The best time to schedule repairs and maintenance on your solar pool heater is winter. Of course, most of the time you can’t control when you need repairs. But by scheduling a service for winter, you can avoid things breaking down in the busy summer months.
So, assuming your pool heater is working well during the year and showing no signs of problems, its best to have it looked at during the cooler winter months.
Why do repairs and maintenance during winter?
A solar pool heater can make your pool warmer all year round. But, generally speaking, pools see a lot less activity during the cooler months. Some people even switch off their pool heaters during winter as they know they aren’t likely to use the pool very often.
There are a number of good reasons to do repairs and maintenance on your solar pool heater in winter. For example:
- You want to make sure your pool heater works for the busy summer months, including school holidays and Christmas period.
- Issues tend to arise when your pool heater is not being used, as is often the case during winter. Many people find that their solar pool heater has problems when they turn it on again leading up to summer.
- It’s harder to schedule maintenance works during summer months as repair technicians are in high demand leading up to Christmas.
- Summer in QLD and NSW is known for its ferocious storms and damaging winds. Often technicians are busy doing emergency repair works for insurance claims during this time.
Common solar pool heater problems we encounter
Over the years we’ve seen just about every possible issue with solar pool heaters. And while they are generally reliable and durable, like most things, they can encounter problems. Here are the most common solar pool heater issues.
Often leaks aren’t noticed until the system is turned back on after being dormant for a period over winter. Leaking parts can usually be fixed, but are more difficult and costly if they have been there for a long time.
Matting is lifting
Wild weather and big winds can cause the matting of your solar pool heater to lift from its secured position on your roof. If left for a long period of time, debris can accumulate under the matting leading to further problems. We can usually fix lifted matting pretty easily by re-gluing it.
In the event of a major storm you should seek our services immediately. We can assess your system and provide quotes for insurance purposes if needed.
Keep in mind, though, that even minor storms can cause damage. So it’s a good idea to get it looked at. Often damage is only discovered once your solar pool heater has been inspected.
