Heater Installation & Repair

 

Pool Heater Installation

Swimming Pool Heaters are effective for heating pools but are primarily used for quick temperature rise in an attached spa. Whatever your intentions, size is critical !!
Heater sizes are measured in BTU’s (British Thermal Units). The more BTU’s, the more heat generated and the quicker the heat rise.

We will help you determine which heater has the most value for your application and will install your heater with proper sediment traps, plumbing, electrical grounding and bonding. Installing a pool heater can be tricky. To make sure you get the best installation possible, contact Mike the Poolman. We will inspect your pool to determine what size pool heater you need and how you should power your heater. If you get a pool heater too small for your pool, you won’t feel the effects and it will ultimately be rendered useless. On the other hand, if you get a pool heater too big, you will be paying for a heating capacity you will never reach or use. Pool pump sizing is also critical for proper heater performance.

  • I was made aware of Mike's pool company by seeing one of his service trucks in my neighborhood and thought to give them a call. I recently moved into a new home with a pool that had been neglected over the past few years, and needed advice on how to bring it back to life.

    Mike immediately got back to me and let me know he would personally stop by my property to give it a look. He let me know what was needed for repairs, and what wasn't necessary in the short term. He never tried to up-sell me, just gave me an honest answer and good advice.

    I ended up having Mike install a new filter and variable speed pump. The equipment purchase was made through him, and along with labor, the price was incredibly fair. After the install, Mike gave me a full rundown on the new equipment, and provided several suggestions and advice on maintaining the pool.

    All in all I was very pleased with his professionalism and service. Will be calling him again if needed.

  • We needed a hand rail installed in our older pool.  Mike was consistently very responsive.  He offered a fair price and was always punctual.  He was especially helpful when we ran into a challenge installing the hand rail due to the age of the brick surrounding our pool.  His quick thinking enabled us to get the much-needed hand rail installed.  I can't recommend him highly enough!

  • Our pool heater hadn't been working for the past two years. It was time to replace it so I didn't hesitate to contact Mike. He had installed a variable speed pump a few years ago and did an excellent job. He had also done other equipment maintenance over the years. Mike was going to take a look at the heater to see what was wrong but I decided to just replace it as it was about 21 years old and continued to breakdown. Mike made a recommendation on a model and just finished installing it. He had to redo some plumbing to adjust to the new heater. He did an excellent job. He even repainted all of the plumbing pipes so it looks new.

    I can always rely on Mike if I have a swimming pool issue. He's friendly, kind and most of all very competent with any swimming pool issue. I can trust he will do the right thing and he always does. He even removed a few automatic valve actuators and converted them to manual without charge.
    I am grateful to have someone who I can trust in the swimming pool business who does outstanding work.
    Thank you Mike!

  • I've had pools serviced in various places I've resided; Davis, Encinitas and Folsom; Mike The PoolMan (Mike Stinson) has been the best service provider that I've experienced. Mike's made complete repairs that most Pool Servicers won't touch. Mike is the complete service provider for regular maintenance, equipment repair/replacement and starting your pool back up after you've had it resurfaced! Mike's been outstanding and Victor has performed in an excellent manner with my weekly as part of Mike's crew! Thanks Mike!

  • I can't say enough good about Mike the Poolman.  When he came to my house to evaluate my pool issue, he first did a thorough review of my pool physically, looked at my pool controller settings, made several recommendations to me about how to take care of my pool better, and adjusted my pool controller settings right there on the spot for me!  Most importantly, he fixed my issue quickly and took great care in his work.  Mike's very friendly and reasonable in his rates.  Highly recommend!

    I am very happy with my experience with Mike the Poolman. He was responsive to my emails and went into depth to help me choose the rail ultimately installed in my pool.

    While there was a wait for the custom rail to be made and shipped to him, it was not an undue amount of time at all. Once he had the rail in stock, it was installed within a week. It was a quick, neat job from there and my father now has a good, stable means of support when exiting the pool. I highly recommend that you contact Mike the Poolman. He has good people working for him and is meticulous about making certain the job is done right.
