    My 25 year old Water Furnace unit compressor went out and got new unit:
    Hydron Module HYT048

    Had issues soon after with cooling not working well. They found one of new pumps bad, still didn't work well, and found miss-wiring (they said from factory) that was making emergency heat come on with cooling when unit was calling to send water to hot water heater. Now cooling is fine. During both repairs they said loop water in 110 to 125 degrees range, even right after doing a loop flush. Is that too high?

    It's been many weeks at that temp as the pumps still feel very hot to touch. They seemed very concerned about the temps at first, saying they never see them that high, but then backed off saying it needs time to cool off and we need rain. Your thoughts?

    Not sure how it will cool down when continuing to dump heat into the loop/ground.

    Loop may need more flushing, may not be utilizing all legs of the loop field.
    Deuce and waterpirate like this.
