Water coming out from under heater

Recommended Posts

I have a Hayward series H millivolt pool heater.  When I turn the pump on, water starts to seep out onto the floor.  When I am facing the heater it is about half way down on the right side of the unit. Anything in particular that I should be suspecting?

If you aren't comfortable taking it apart yourself it is. You can pull the top off to get in there and poke around. It may be something simple, or not.

If the leak is coming from the Hot Tubs tank, you'll need to replace the water heater. Why? Because, most likely, sediment (minerals) has built up at the bottom of the tank, corroding the tank's inner lining.

Corrosion of the heat exchanger where it meets the manifold is likely which generally means new heater.  Though there is a chance it's one of the things RDspaguy said you won't know until you take it apart.
