My first Hayward heater lasted 16 years.So we were doing something right.
Based on this fact we bought another Hayward heater. Big mistake. It started leaking after 13 months. Fought with Hayward and finally got a new heating core.
This one lasted 3 years and started leaking. After taking the heating core out I found out why. Instead of using a sleave to connect two pieces of copper pipe, they stretched one side of the copper pipe so as to fit the other pipe into it. When you stretch anything it gets thinner.
Sure enough the thinned section starts to rip and leak.
For just pennies per unit, Hayward could avoid the problem.Will never buy another Hayward product.
