Will a gas heater operate at the low speed of a dual speed motor?

A  Answered on 1/16/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Regarding the Max-E-Therm 200000BTU LP Elc.IGN. How does your warranty work? If something should go wrong can we get a local technician to look at and repair it and then submit the bill for parts and labor to you. Could you explain the warranty a little better to us. Also how long would it take to get this heater is it in stock. Thank you

Hi Linda, Once the unit is installed by a pool professional the unit will be warranted by the manufacturer.  If the unit fails within the warranty period you will have to contact the manufacturer and they will send someone out. The service company usually bills the manufacturer.

I have a sta-rite max E-therm 200 pool heater. when the heater fires up all is good, no errors. It runs about 3 or 4 min and the burner shuts off then run another min or two and burner cycles on again. it just keeps doing this. I backwashed, filters are clean, no obstructions. I turned backwash valve to recirculate and it still does this. thank you

Hi Jack,  A few things can cause the problem that you're having with your unit. It could be an electrical and or gas pressure problem, to properly diagnose the problem you will have to get a service technician out to troubleshoot your unit.
