    HEATWAVE Heater leaking???


    I have a HEATWAVE heater and recently I have notices a constant stream of water from the top of the heat exchanger?
    This happen if the heater is on or not, and as a result my pool level drops by an inch or so every few days.

    It seems to be coming form a small module (about the size of a small pepper pot) on top of the exchanger. It also has a wire going into it, perhaps some kind of temp gauge?

    Q: can I seal the hole with say plumbers putty? I mean its not some sort of pressure relief valve gone wrong or anything is it??

    Sorry, cant seem to upload a pic of this.
    Help & thanks!!

    Aquacal Heatwave heatpump?

    Take a look on page 57 of the owners manual in the link below to see if the "module" that is leaking is one of the 2 types of water flow pressure switches used on these models. ... manual.pdf
