    Default HELP Propane pool heater // RATS!!

    Help,

    My propane heater which I like to get working again.... I have rodents living in it. I thought they were gone but... when I removed the gas pipes which are the heaters, and used a vacuum to clean it out. I noticed that there where some other next stuff. When I put hand up there to pull it down I heard some noise babies maybe. HELP how to remove them without a pest company, I sold the house and just need to fix some issues before Tuesday.

    Cover the pump with a plastic bag and fill it with poisonous gas.

    I use the RAID Fumigators. They kill everything. Put two of them under the plastic bag.

    The rodents I've sucked up with my shop vac seem to have broken their necks when hitting the baffle at a high rate of speed.

    At least they get a cool, twisty ride to the end... talk about having a killer vacuum cleaner.
    Glad rollercoasters aren't designed that way.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Couldn't suck them down with the shop vac. they moved to high in the heater. I put the heater back together and tried to fire it up, but didn't gave me an error. Will try to cook them tomorrow.....

    Update on Rat Roosting....

    The error which was E04 which is stated as blower pressure switch, not the whole story IMHO. It turns out there was no gas getting to the heater, propane people where out today to fix problem. And I happy to report the RAT's were FIRED and heater works. Woo Hoo.

    Just wait...between the critters in your attic, bugs, critters in the pool heater, it won't be long before a lizard the size of a jumbo jet crawls out of the gulf to destroy Florida. Much like what Godzilla did to Tokyo.
    Too many weird bugs and critters down there for me.

    I have propane heat for my house and the price of propane has gone through the roof the last few years, almost considering switching it out to electric

    ....as long as she's your girlfriend anyway. What happens after that goes caput ? Piece of advice....don't piss her off.

    Propane....yeah but he's in Florida. How often you going to heat that pool anyway.

    Propane is only used for the spa, the pool is heated with a solar system.

    Only used for the Spa ? The fact that it wasn't working means you haven't used it in a while. You have a girlfriend, a spa....not working ? Do the math.
    Don't make me come down there and slap you upside the head pal.

    We purchased a Harman wood pellet stove. This past winter was CRAZY expensive. The stove will pay for itself in 1 YEAR.
