Every year, my boyfriend and I have a party at our house.
We have the party at our place, because we have an inground pool.
The pool is heated and people like to swim during the Christmas party. When everyone starts to drink, the party usually ends up in the pool. I turned on the heating and AC unit in the pool house. I also turned on the switch for the pool heater. I started cleaning inside the pool house. I went outside to check the water and it still felt ice cold. It had only been an hour or two since I turned on the heater, so I didn’t think there was a problem yet. After a few more hours, I decided to check on the temperature of the pool and it was still very cold. I checked to see if the red light was on near the heater. The red light indicates that the heater is running. The red light was not on. I turned the heater on and off a couple of times but that did not help. I didn’t know what happened to the pool heater, but I knew that it was a problem that needed to be fixed right away. I immediately contacted the company that handles services on our pool and pool heating equipment. The repair technician came out the next day. There was a short in the line and it was causing a problem. It was a very easy to fix electrical issue and thankfully not a huge problem that kept us from using the pool on christmas.
