I have cabin fever. We are living through a weird time. I know that I have it good compared to the rest of the world. I don’t have food stress, I have shelter a job. Still, I miss the old days of just 6 months ago. It is strange going to the doctor with a mask on. I got the feeling today that when I went with my wife for her medical appointment that the doctor didn’t want me in the room as if he was afraid I would give him Covid 19. Impossible to read people with most of their face blocked off. I have to figure out how to express 10 emotions with my eyes I guess. Bizarre going to the bank and them not minding I had a mask and sun glasses on. I have friends that I know had Covid in February that are afraid to socialize with me unless I am 6 feet away and masked up. Lots of geothermal installations still going on. I am happy that I am still sending swimming pool heat pumps to people stuck at home. It makes me feel like I am doing something to make some people more comfortable & happy. I am sending more heat pump chillers out this year to people that usually just put up with pools that were too hot for a month or two. Best year ever for that. My fish people do need chillers to keep the little fingerlings from over heating. Sent 2 heat pump chillers to Hawaii to help a man with trout that needed cool water to be healthy and grow big. I hope my other Aquaculture, hydroponic and Aquaponic people check in with me to tell me how they are doing. I want someone to step up and challenge me to a grow off and see if science can beat me. I will even send you documented 2000 pound possible pumpkin seeds so we can judge whos growing technique works the best.
Stay safe out there,
I want you to enjoy your pool for as much of the year as possible. Having a pool that is too cold is a waste of money and you are not using it to keep fit or for a comfortable place to entertain your friends and family. Pool heating with a pool heater or pool heat pump is the easiest way to solve that issue. A heat pump for pool is one of the best ways to maintain reliable heating throughout the season. I can help you with pool heater sizing, pool supplies, give advice on pool heater installation and most anything you need to know about a pool heating system. Some of you already have an old pool heater and might need advice on a pool heater repair or if you are replacing one, I can tell you who has the best pool heater for your specific application. A pool heating system can be a pool heat pump, gas heater, oil heater, solar panels or a wood-fired boiler. We can help you with all the pool supplies. We only distribute North American made products. You won’t get a cheap pool heat pump from me. Well, cheaply made anyway. You will get the best-priced pool heater that is of high quality.
I am here for you if you have any questions,

Swimming pool heat pumps and pool heaters should bring happiness and less stress into your life. You should be able to enjoy your warm tropical water without worrying about repairing your heat pump. It is a machine though and sometimes you have to have it serviced. Here are some tips if your pool heater is not heating.
1: Is your pool heat pump running at all? Look to see if the digital display is lite up and displaying a message. Many times the pool heater will tell you what is wrong. If you hear no sound and see no display then look to see that your circuit breaker tripped off and replace your fuse if you have one.
2: If you see low flow on the display then see if your filter is clean and all the valves are in the right position.
3: Sometimes you need to turn the breaker on and off to reset the heat pump if it had experienced multiple water flow failures.
4: The pool heat pump is running and the pool isn’t heating up then see if the discharge air temperature is about 10 degrees cooler than the outside air. That shows the compressor is running.
5: If everything seems to be working you might need to run the filter pump longer or put a blanket on the pool.
6: Text me at 360 348 7574 to tell me what is happening and I might be able to help troubleshoot.
7: If there is water draining from the heat pump and it is running that should be normal condensation. If you have any doubt then put a chlorine test strip in the water to see if chlorine. If chlorine then you have a leak. No chlorine then it is normal.
8: If also might have shut down to a cold night below 50 degrees. Give it some time to warm in the sun. Some low-temperature heat pumps will go into the 30’s.

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.

I have a swimming pool heat pump at my home that was left over from a successful run test 10 plus years ago. It probably has the old freon 22 that was discontinued in 2010. I like to watch heat pumps working in the field for a few years before I distribute them if at all possible. (Not always possible, but I try) I had a few on a live webcam for 3 years where you could drop in 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in all weather conditions to see how they were performing. Many gas heater manufacturers used the videos as training tools. I might do that again. The problem is that my above ground pool collapsed last year, and then my neighbor and pool buddy who got my free heat pumps moved away with one of my test pools. My beautiful wife and the CEO of Green Plant Supply suggested last week with a hint of menace in her voice that I get that old test heat pump running and heating a pool before her Fourth of July holiday party. So, trying to be a good husband, I rented an above ground pool from a junk removal company to use until I could build a proper swimming pool for her. We would have a mini theme park in the backyard. Needless to say, I am writing these posts from the doghouse. I am really happy that I put in Wifi for Mr. Snuggles-Worth the elderly Dachshund. I might have to take her to a hotel or motel so she can swim. Have a safe holiday. We are here for you. Marcus Miller Maybe I can also use it for aquaculture, hydroponics or aquaponics?
“Mine is installed and working, I called Marcus a couple times on Saturday, All I can say is he is awesome, and very patient. I did end up calling a local contractor to hook up the desuperheater pump, and the drain valve. the furnace is cranking out the heat.

I get calls like this almost every day. Swimming pool heat pumps should last 10 to 15 years. 10 years ago many pool heaters used the old discontinued freon 22 refrigerant. I come from a service background. It is natural for me to try to repair my customers old heat pumps if I could do it for a reasonable amount that made sense. Unfortunately I can’t travel all over the world to repair heat pumps for my customers. I took a call from a heat pump owner who had a 15 year old pool heater that had a Freon leak. Some copper pipes were touching and the vibration of the heater caused the pipes to rub, and then leak Freon from the hole. That usually is an easy fix, but this time it wasn’t in his best interest I thought after asking him a few questions about his plans for the pool. He was going to live there for the next 8 years until he retired and then sell the house. The pool was important to him now as he used the pool regularly to exercise. I suggested a new heat pump as then he would be under warranty for parts and labor and then when he sold the house the heat pump would still be under a parts warranty. Also he would have a heat pump with the new Freon that any HVAC heating or cooling company would have on their truck if he ever needed service. Everyone has different needs. If someone wants to repair a really old heater and needs parts we can help them find then even if the heat pump is no longer manufactured. I have listed some current models and older discontinued heat pumps that are still out there so that if you have one and want to keep it going longer then I will try to help you do that.
Have a great swimming season.
