    If it's 7-8 years old there is likely no longer any warranty.

    What kind of leaks?

    Can you list the specific info, if you have it? Model #, etc.?

    I would agree, it should last longer, my Laars is 8 years and going strong. IF the pool chemistry wasn't maintained properly, and if the heater wasn't winterized properly, it could be not salvagable.

    Hopefully one of the equipment experts will offer advice shortly (this is their busy season, so you may have to be patient.)

    The LX is pricey to fix. The problems probably started with the leaks due to bad water chemistry and then spread from there. If you have to replace the heat exchanger ($1200 + a few hours of open heart surgery), I'd consider replacing it with a newer, more efficient, less problematic heater.
