I bought a special heater for the pool at the rental house.
I hooked up the heater and I thought it was going to work.
I must have done something incorrectly, because after three days, the pool water still wasn’t warm. I was determined to fix the heating problem on my own, because the cost of a pool heating contractor is extremely high. It is a specialty area and those guys charge an arm and a leg for services. I troubleshooted the problem and I thought it was a wiring issue. I went to the hardware store to find the right parts to fix the problem with the heater. I went to three different hardware stores before I found the parts in stock. I was starting to lose my mind. I was worried that I was going to need to drive all the way to the city in order to find the part for the pool heater. I got the wiring that was necessary and everything seems to be correct. I crossed my fingers that second time I tried to heat the pool. The machine came on and started to hum and per. It sounded much different than the machine sounded when the heater wasn’t working. I was trying to be very patient, but I decided to check the pool a couple of hours later before I went to bed. I didn’t feel any temperature shift in the water and I started to feel very sad and depressed. In the morning when I woke up, I made a cup of coffee and I went outside to check on the pool. This time the water was definitely warmer than the temperature of the air outside.
