How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

How to tell if your pool's heating pump is damaged

It can be quite frustrating when you're looking forward to a relaxing swim in your heated pool, only to find out that the water is not being heated. Indeed, a damaged heat pump is the leading cause for your pool not getting heated as desired. The heat pump works by propelling water through the heating source and back into the pool, keeping the swimming pool warm during cold winter months.

When the heat pump is damaged, you will notice that water does not receive any heat when pumped through the heating source. You may also notice that water is not circulating as it should. Here are other troubleshooting tips that point towards a damaged pool pump.


A leak in the heating pump often indicates damage to the pump itself or its housing. You may notice a leak as water passes by the pump or the lack of warm water in the pool despite the pump being on. Leaks often occur due to damage to the pump housing or other nearby fittings.

In some cases, a damaged seal shaft or thread sealant will cause leaking to occur. In addition, the warm water that passes through a heat pump can cause frequent expansion/contraction of rubber fixtures. If you notice any leaks in your heat pump, have them repaired as soon as possible.

A damaged heating coil

Of course, if the heating coil is damaged, then water in your pool cannot be heated. A damaged coil can occur due to wear and tear, physical damage from foreign objects, or electrical surges.

You should check if the heating coil turns on when the pump is in operation. If not, seek repair services to have the coil fixed.

A noisy motor

The motor is an important part of your pool's heat pump. It is responsible for providing the force necessary to circulate water during heating. Therefore, a damaged motor will manifest itself when water doesn't flow as it should when the pump is in operation. In addition, you can tell a damaged motor if it is noisy (producing a screeching sound) or if it frequently turns on and off when operating.

There are several reasons why a motor may become damaged. It may have a leaking shaft seal or a flipping circuit breaker that is causing the operational issues.

By determining the specific part of your heat pump that is damaged, you can better determine how much it will cost to fix it, as well as identify the best technician for the job.
