Will a gas heater operate at the low speed of a dual speed motor?
Probably not - Most gas heater will shut off at low GPM levels (20-40) to keep the heater cores from overheating - 20 for 200 BTUs, 40 for 400 BTUs. Depending on your pool system you might get these GPM levels at the low speed but generally these heaters must be run at the motor's high speed.
What is the difference between an Electronic and Millivolt ignition?
The basic answer is that Millivolt is the old style of ignition, using a standing pilot light. While the electronic ignition uses a spark start system like a gas grill. Electronic ignitions are more efficient in gas usage and also are better suited for high wind areas where a pilot light might get extinguished.
I currently have a 10 year old Jandy LT 250 heater. When the pool co. opened the pool yesterday everything went well except the heater. the rep said the blower would not come on and suggested I replace the blower. Your web site shows a new one for $438.99. Since mine is 10 years old, would it be better to purchase a new heater? If so, which model do you recommend?
Curt, It will be better to replace your 10 year old heater, rather than fixing it. To get your the correct replacement we'll need to know if you have propane or natural gas and whether you want an electronic or milivolt ignition. Please reply.
