    Broken wire connection on heater

    Hi. I have a broken wire connection on my Hayward heater. It is the last wire on the manifold on the outlet side. it looks like it was originally connected by some type of rivet. My question is, is there an easy fix? I didn't know of solder would work, or I have some epoxy left over form an auto radiator repair. Trying to avoid having to remove the whole thing and get expensive. Thanks.

    Which model Hayward heater?
    Can you post a picture?

    The more information you can provide, the better your chances of someone being able to help.

    20x40 free-form IG vinyl, 1hp Hayward superpump, Hayward pro grid DE filter, Raypak heatpump, Goldline Aquarite SWCG, Polaris 280 with booster, and tested using a Taylor K2006.

    Agree that a picture is invaluable.
    Also, glue is notoriously bad as an electrical connection method. You'll want to try to stay with a crimp or solder type connection.

    It's a model H100ID1. No pic for it right now but will try and get one. Thanks.

    I've had severe rodent damage in my heater, and as mentioned above, easiest way to repair, if possible, is to use crimp fittings, then wrap with some electrical tape.
