Post-Installation Walk-Through of Our GeoThermal Units
How can we help you? Contact Us Today
Today we’re here at Countryside Verandas to do a post-installation walk-through of the GeoThermal units that were installed. Follow along in the video above to gain an understanding of how these units work to regulate your pool temperatures year-round.
There are two units for the pool: the leading unit (bottom) and the lagging unit (top). These units are stacked on an aluminum rack to save space. The leading unit is the only one that needs to be manipulated to control the pool temperature and the four modes: off, heat, cool, and auto heat/cool. Starting at 2:30 in the video above you can see a breakdown of how to control each of these modes on the thermostat controller.
You might see a few error codes on a Symbiont Service GeoThermal unit, so here’s a quick explanation of each of those:
- HP5. Most of the time, this error code indicates that the pool is dirty. If you see it, call your pool service company and ask them to clean the filters. Then, reset the breakers; if it continues to happen after the pool filters have been cleaned, give us a call, and we’ll send a technician out immediately.
- LP5. This error code often occurs after a lightning strike that shuts off the well pump. Switching the breaker off and on again should correct the problem.
- Flow. Follow the same steps as the LP5 error code to resolve this issue.
“It’s easy for us to get permits because we’re not using much water from the aquifers, but rather the heat.”
On the supply well, you’ll find circuitry that allows the pumps and heater to communicate with the supply well. This doesn’t operate 24/7; it only comes on when the heaters call for heat. There is a breaker on the supply well that you can switch if you see the LP5 error code on your display. The supply well also has a pressure relief valve and an isolation ball valve built into it.
The pipes are painted green to maintain the aesthetic, but here at Countryside Verandas and most other properties, they’ll plant shrubbery around it to hide it. If you do so, remember to leave a little room so that technicians can get close if they need to work on it.
The injection well looks similar to the supply well, except it lacks the circuitry boxes. The injection well serves to inject water back into the aquifer after being pulled out by the supply well and cycled through the heat exchangers. That’s why it’s so easy for us to get permits; we’re not using much of the water, but rather some of the heat.
