Minerva Pools lets you keep your pool warm all year long with a heat pump. But, with proper maintenance and care, these units can quickly succeed. In this article, we’ll discuss how to troubleshoot and maintain your pool heat pump to ensure that it operates efficiently for years to come.

Importance of Proper Maintenance

When used properly, the average life span of a pool heat pump is up to seven years. However, even when regularly maintained, wear and tear may cause the unit to break down sooner than expected. That’s why regular maintenance and timely repairs are essential for keeping your pool heater in top condition.

Steps for Troubleshooting Pool Heat Pump Issues
If you encounter problems with your pool heat pump, there are some steps you should take before calling a technician:

1. Check the power source

Make sure the power source (usually a wall outlet or circuit breaker) is working properly by testing it with another appliance or device. If there is no power to the unit, check the circuit breaker or contact an electrician if necessary.

2. Check the thermostat settings

Adjusting the thermostat settings can help to resolve minor problems such as temperature fluctuations or the unit not turning on at all. Adjusting these settings can be as simple as pressing the ‘reset’ button on the control panel or accessing advanced settings via the user interface options, depending on your pool heat pump model.

3. Check the wiring and connections

Check the wiring connections both inside and outside your heat pump system for loose cables or broken wires that could cause short circuits and other operational problems.

Perform regular maintenance

To ensure optimum performance from your pool heating system over its lifetime, it’s important to carry out regular maintenance tasks such as cleaning filters, checking safety devices, inspecting electrical components such as wiring connections, lubricating motors and inspecting pipes and hoses on a regular basis. You should also check seals and gaskets annually to ensure they are still intact to prevent leaks. In addition, most manufacturers recommend that certain parts be replaced after a certain period of time to prevent further damage.

Maintaining manufacturer warranties

For maximum protection against unexpected repair costs in the future, Minerva Pools recommends that any warranties or extended service plans you receive with the purchase of your pool heat pump are kept up to date through regular maintenance. That way, if a part fails due to normal wear and tear within the warranty period, you won’t have to pay costly repair fees out of pocket.


Minerva Pools understands that looking after a pool heat pump can be a daunting task – especially if you don’t have experience of working with this type of system. However, by following the steps suggested in this article, you can easily keep your unit running efficiently year after year without having to call a technician to repair or replace parts constantly.
