I had a new 130,000 btu Rome Heat and Cool heat pump installed in Phoenix earlier this year. I have had limited time to run it to find out if it is working properly but I have a couple of questions.
It seems that you have to have your water pump running all the time in order for your heat pump to work. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of the pump being energy efficient. Perhpas there is some way for the heat pump to turn on the water pump when it senses that more heat is required to the pool? if there is I am not aware of it.
Secondly when I did run the heat pump it did stop working and the display indicated that it may have been a problem with icing. I was of the understanding that the pump because it is a heat and cool model it would automatically defrost and keep on working. Is this not the case? For your info the ambient temp was about 50 degrees.
Any help would be appreciated.
