Do I need a fireman’s switch?

  • A fireman’s switch is a device installed in a time clock. It turned the heater on 30 minutes after the circulation pump went on and turned the heater off 30 minutes before the circulation pump went off. This was to allow the water to cool down and not damage the plumbing lines. ALL Hayward heaters have Fire Tile, which dissipates the heat immediately, so a fireman’s switch is not required. 
  • NOTE: Gas fired heaters should be diagnosed and repaired by trained personnel.
