I have a Hayward H250 heater that I installed last year. It replaced the exact same unit. I stripped some parts from the old unit including the High Wind Vent system. I did not reinstall this into the new heater at the time, but am now finding out that the pilot keeps blowing out and is a bit of a pain because the pool is not getting heated when I want it to. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to remove the top panel of the heater to install the venting system. I remember it being a breeze to disassemble last year from the old unit. If I read the manual for the heater, it mentions the use of the same HWS vent that I have and says to refer to the manual in the box for the HWS for installation instructions. So I went to Hayward and they refuse to help me stating I need to get a registered gas contractor to install the vent. I know this is a fairly simple process, but need to get the small vent door removed first.
Does anyone have any experience with installing one of these?
