Have issues with my heater
, heater started tripping

Customer Question

Customer: ***** ***** have issues with my heater
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: heater started tripping the system, some basic research suggested that since my heater is now 7 years old the element was probably faulty and that replacing the heater would be advisable. ordered a 1kw heater but when it arrived although it was the same size some key elements were different. The thread for the sensor was smaller, and there were no wires attached to the elements (On my old one they are soldered on) and no-one seems to sell them as spares. And finally the lugs that hold in plavce are not there. Apparently according to the poolandspa centre i can fit a 3kw heater instead but that will mean configuring my board to stop the heater coming on during second stage water flow(it will draw too many amps) the 3kw heater also has a different sensor. I'm not sure which way to go
