Recently purchased a house with an in-ground pool. Pool was installed in 2005. Previous owner let me know the heat pump will not heat.
I had a look at it, messed with it some, fan turns on as soon as the pump is commanded to heat, thermostats work for both pool and spa. The issue is the compressor only turns on for a couple seconds then off. Tries to run again after 5 minutes or so.
This is my setup:
SwimTemp model: STRC2-5 heat pump
Pentair Compool LX100 wireless controller
Of course I don't have any manuals for anything, I'm not even certain I have the valves turned to allow water into the pump. Nothing is marked, and the previous owner told me nothing. Any help? I've been in contact with pool companies here, but would like to do some digging in the meantime.
