Before I do that though, I’m thinking about resurfacing my concrete pool deck. I want something that gives off more an island aesthetic to match with the salt water. Which pool decks do you think are best?

    1. The issue could be a few things, like scale buildup, sediment in the heat exchanger, or possibly a bad bypass valve. Because it is a gas heater, I suggest having a professional come out and take a look at it.
