    Re: Electric pool heater blows up my fuses

    Blowing fuses is indicative of a short on the electrical side. It is doubtful the filter or water pressure has anything to do with it. My fist guess would be a bad heating element, but that is just a guess.

    Are these actual fuses that are blowing, or circuit breakers tripping?

    Re: Electric pool heater blows up my fuses

    So the heater is only two months old?

    Were you running the filter in bypass mode at all?

    Is the pump running properly?

    What is the filter pressure?

    Re: Electric pool heater blows up my fuses

    There are heat pumps, which have a compressor and work like an AC unit and then there are electrical heating element type heaters. Is there a model number on the heater?

    If it is a heat pump, it may just need servicing for the coolant but it could also be a bad compressor.

    What is the circuit size you have the heater on?
