Hayward H100id Pool Heater - Venting Steam when burner is lit...

4 year old Hayward H100id above ground pool heater vents lots of steam each time I switch it on and the burner is lit. Thought it was just a little condensation at first but it continues as long as the heater is on. The internal fan & the other functions appear to be normal and heated water comes out and into the pool. Any ideas as to why this is occurring?

Hi,

Sounds like the heat exchanger has a leak. It needs to be repaired or replaced. Probably the cost of the repair may be close to replacement.

you should remove the top and door so you can find were the leak is. look with pump running.

Thanks! :-)

Hi and thanks for the assist. :-) I have removed the top cover & looked inside. I am also replacing the pressure switch, so I am moderately familiar with the inner workings of the heater. To me it seems odd that there is no water leaking inside anywhere, but when the burner is on - that's when I see lots of steam coming from the exhaust vent.

try to fire heater with top off so you can see. You will have to hold the door button in to ignite. See if it leaks when exchanger is hot.
