This as been a month of people calling for parts who bought Kopec and Heat Siphon pool heaters back in the early 2000’s. I love to see people who maintained their equipment well all these years getting rewarded with a long service life for their heat pumps. I remember someone once sent me a photo of them applying car wax to the cabinet. I send out parts when I can to help customers keep their machines running. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense though if the repair is too expensive considering that equipment from that era used a freon that has since been discontinued. It was interesting that Mr. Kopec who had models like the 650TI, 600TI, 700TI Titan and the 525SC, 525S, 525SCTI etc. used a rotary knob for a thermostat on some of his models. I loved that the engineer who designed the heater also put his name on the heat pump. I want a product that is backed by someone who wants the world to know their name. He made a tough heat pump. I was sorry to see him get out of the pool heater business. US Thermo Amp who is still making heat pumps, also known as Heat Siphon, also used a manual rotary dial thermostat on their C5.0 and SX5.0 models. Now Heat Siphon is the only manufacturer left that still incorporates the analog thermostat control on their heat pumps. Even though it has a special place in my analog heart, most people don’t want that. They want a digital thermostat that they can program in an exact temperature and that will also have a diagnostic troubleshooting code to display if anything is wrong to help pinpoint what has shut the pool heater off. Tough to decide if you want simple and strong or if you need the extra bling, bling that we are surrounded with. If you are thinking of having your old pool heat pump repaired text me what is going on and maybe I can help you decide which direction to go in. I have a service history and have kept HVAC and swimming pool heat pumps going longer than they were designed to go but I also have a good idea on when to pull the plug and start fresh with a pool heater that has a long warranty. Pools are supposed to be fun and relaxing. I don’t want you stressing during the swimming season about repairs when you should be swimming with the family.
