We have a Hayward H series pool heater. Our pool is new to us last year and we were told the heater was one year old last year (so now two years old). It didn't work at all last year, we kept getting a IF error.
So my husband has been working on it, figured it was a blockage and cleared out the manifold and nozzles. Now it works but seemingly too well!
Upon start up there is a LOUD "whoosh" (I heard it in the house about 50 feet away) and the initial flame shoots up outside of the pipe. Then it does down and stays in the box. He turned it off thinking he didn't want to burn it all up.
Is that correct? Should we just leave it on and call it good? Or did he maybe blow out a regular or something and now too much gas is flowing?
