Own a home in Ocala FL with a 18' x 36' unground pool. Deepest point is probably 7'. We would like to swim all year with water temp no lower than 75 degrees. Will a heat pump with a solar blanket enable us to achieve this minimum tempretature in Dec, Jan & Feb? What size unit would you recommend? What should we anticipate for electric costs/usage?
Good afternoon Bill, The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU - HP21404t would be a great heat pump for you. You can figure about 5,000 watts or 5 kilowatts per hour per 100,000 BTU’s for a heat pump. For a typical 100,000 BTU heat pump, that’s 5 kilowatts per hour. The national average for Electricity runs $.13 cents per kilowatt hour. Electricity costs vary widely throughout the United States so checkout this website updating the Electricity Costs for all 50 States. In our example, 1 hour on a heat pump will cost .60 cents.
I am looking to replace a Propane Pool Heater for my 18x36 pool located in Eastham, MA (cape cod). The pool is open from mid/late June to early/mid September and not much of a need to go higher than 80 degrees. We have very little, if any, tree cover and we get a lot of sun on the pool. Which size do you recommend and will this type of system save me on utility costs (electric) versus currently using propane.
Good afternoon David, It would be 1/4 of the cost to run. Here is a link to a blog breakdown on Heater running cost.How much is it to run my Heater?
Where can I find the serial number on Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU - HP21404t ? Regards, Arild
I am not sure of the specific location of the serial number label, but here is a link to what the label looks like so you know what you are looking for.
Concerning the by-pass valve for the HP21404T. Does the valve automatically by-pass the heat pump if the pressure is over the limit? What is the part # and price for the by-pass valve? When can I expect delivery on the HP2140T if I order it on Nov 28?
Hi, Edward. The by-pass valve is not automatic but manual which is built using 3 Ball Valves. The by-pass is shown on page 9 Fig. 3 of the Hayward HeatPro HP21404T Owners Manual. Delivery can take an average of 5-7 business days once the unit leaves the warehouse.
With my 13k gal pool, when does over-powered become overkill? I calculated 115 BTU. Is 140 BTU worth the extra $$$ for the reduced stress, wear/tear and increased heating?
Good Afternoon firstname.lastname@example.org, The more btu's the faster you heatup. Means less time running . Which results in less where and tear and better savings on power.
I have a south facing 52x27 freeform pool (40,000 gallons) in central NJ. I would like to get a heat pump to keep heating costs down, but I don't know if pool is too big for that. Would HP21404T be adequate? Any other recommendation?
It will not help enough in the winter time, but come next fall it would definitely extend your pool season another month or two. And yes, the 140k model would be adequate enough though I would recommend either a winter cover or solar cover to speed up the heating process as well as help maintaining the heat in the pool.
need to heat cement ingroud pool 12x 24 with average depth of 4,5 feet. located in southern florida and needs to be heated November1 til May1 Good southern sun exposure all day. No access to natural gas or propane. What do you suggest, thanks
Hey Bruce,Good Afternoon .140,000 BTU would be great for the size of your pool .Heres a link with a few options Hayward Heat Pump HeatPro
Where exactly are the plumbing inlet/outlets on the hayward HP21404t? If my pad is tight, can it be placed sideways on the pad?
Ken, The inlet and outlet are located on the back of the unit. You can rotate the heat pump in any direction as long as you meet the clearance requirements: A minimum clearance of 72 inches should be allowed above the unit for unrestricted air discharge. The unit must not be installed under a porch. Any side of the unit should be located at least 24 inches from a wall or from any other obstruction for unrestricted air intake and service access.
Hi there? I got in ground 12 x 24 ft 53" deep (arround 6,000 gallons pool I woul like you to recomend a electric pool heater . Best regards
Yes, I would recommend a 50,000 BTU heat pump for your above ground pool.
hayward HP21404t this equipment fit the pentair intelliflow pump?
It will go just fine with the intelliflo, but if you are doing automation I would recommend the ultra temp instead.
what is the hourly wattage usage on this unit?
There is really no specific answer to this question, but here is a link How Much Does it Cost to Run My Pool Heater? On this page it provides information on the average cost to run a pool heater. If you need a more specific answer, feel free to contact Hayward directly at 1-800-657-2287.
trying to put a new low pressure switch back on the copper tubing having a hard time on how to sodder or use the pressure fitting that comes with the new part is there a link on how to show how it goes back on, like a small video
You shouldn't have to solder anything. You would unhook the old pressure switch and hook up the new one. The wiring should hook up just like you were wiring a pump motor.
I know this heat pump is probably overkill but I want a heater to heat it as fast as possible without having to pay too much in utility bills. Would you suggest a gas heater instead? Houston, TX 77095 84 deg Use year round if possible Size - 14x21 Depth - 4.5ft High Wind? no Direct, partial or no sunlight - full/partial. No trees but pool is located against house so shaded by 2 story house so it depends on time of year. back of house facing east Solar blanket- yes
If you are wanting to heat your pool quick a heater, either propane or natural gas, would be the way to go. A heat pump will get it to the temperature that you want it to be, but not as fast as a heater. You would heat your pool efficiently with a 200k or 250k BTU model heater.
How many KwH does this use? What is the COP?
I'm not aware of the kilowatts per hours, but the COP is 5.7
I have a 16 x 32 above ground and was wondering first what size heater should I get and how much on average does the electric go up a lot if I would keep it about 86-90?
Hi Dianah, This unit will be sufficient to heat your pool, For an above ground pool of your size you can use an 117,000 or 125,000 BTU unit. The operating cost will vary depending on the size of unit, the run time and whether you use a cover or not.
hello, I have an 16x32 in ground pool and I believe its 25000 gallons, would the 125 btu work or the 140btu?
what is the full load amp for the heat pro 140000 btu unit
size of electrical wire if unit sits 110' from breaker box?
We do not have that information. I will refer you to Hayward (908) 351-5400 or you may want to contact an electrician.
What size breaker does this unit require
Hi, This unit requires a 60 amp 230 volt breaker.
How many amps will the 140K draw
Hello, For installation purposes, the HP21404t Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump requires a minium 50 amp breaker. If you need additional amperage information on this unit, you may need to contact Hayward directly at 908-355-7995.
I just purchased a 140,000 electric heater for my pool. I have had it running for 18 hours straight. The temperature only went up 7 degrees. Is that normal or is there a problem with the unit? I know the air temp has been ranging from 50-75. Thanks
Hi Anthony, Yes that would be the expected temperature rise based on the conditions you explained.
does hayward make an electric heat pump that heats and cools
Hi Greg, The only heat/cool unit that Hayward has is the HP31204T model.
I have a 20x40 in ground (33,000 gallon) pool. We are replacing a Hayward 116k btu unit. Is the 140k btu appropriate for our pool? 116k seemed a little small and worked hard.
Hi Rickey, From a BTU standpoint I would suggest the 140K heat pump for your pool. You may want to check with your electrician to make sure you have the proper sized breaker and wire size.
I live in Frisco Texas. Can you recommend a certified installer of the Haywood 140k btu pool heat pump?
We do not recommend installers, but if you contact Hayward at 908-355-7995, they can provide a list of technicians in your area.
Do I need a check valve for Hayward Chlorine feeder, the Hayward CL220 ?
Hi, Tony. No, you do not need a check valve between the pool and the chlorinator. If you have a heater, it would not be a bad idea to place a check valve between the heater and the chlorinator to prevent backflow of concentrated chlorinated water into the heater piping.
Up to how many gallons will the 140,000 btu heater handle( what size pool will it heat in gallons)??
Mike, A heat pump this size would be good up to 30- 35,000 gallons.
I just opened my pool...everything is working...My Heat Pro is running and the fan is blowing but there is no warm water coming out of my inlet ports....How long should it take the Heat Pro to starting producing warm water...the water temp is 70 degrees and I have the heat pump set at 80
Joe, Depending on the outdoor temp and humidity, it will take a heat pump a few hours to start heating the water.
I live in Santa Ana, CA 92703, can you recommend an installer for this heater, please, thanks so much!
Hello JD, we are not affiliated with any pool equipment installers. I would recommend contacting your local pool stores and inquiring about pricing and appointment times for installing your pool heater.
Where are the "IN" and "OUT" valves located on this model .. in relationship to where is the electrical panel/hookup is .... I'm hoping to use the same electrical line (60AMP - 2lines -- 2AWG?) .... and some PVC work is always expected.. Thanks do much
The pipe connections are located on the rear of the unit near the base. To connect the electricity, you must unscrew the five screws of the front panel, then slide the electric cable through the knockout located on the left or the right side of the base, and then insert it in the control box.
Hi, I have a 47000 gallon L shaped pool, I get direct sunlight about 9 hours a day , and I live on Long Island. I am interested in keeping my pool temp around 84-88. How will this heat pump work for me? I am not concerned about extending my swim season, I would just like the water more comfortable. Thank you.
That heat pump would work great with your size pool.
We just purchased from you and installed a Hayward Heatpump Pro 140,000 BTU heat pump. Hell of a great unit. Took our above ground 20x40 pool from 55 to 80 in a couple of days. Love it. Question is this. Our pump is manually turned on and off with no timer as of now. How do we shut off the Heat pump when the pump is off. Right now I am turning off the circuit breaker for the heat pump. My question is do I have to do that or can I just shut off the pool pump and let the heat pump turn itself off.
Jerry, Good to hear you are happy with your purchase. The heat pump has an internal flow sensor. The heat pump should not come on if there is no water flow. You can test this next time you turn the pump off. The only downside is that if the sensor fails for any reason, the heat pump may try to run.
I have a 24' x 54" deep round above ground pool. Would this be an appropriate heater for this? Or is there another model that would work better?
Hi, This unit can heat your pool but a bit overkill for a 24', the HP21004T will be sufficient for you size pool.
do I need a GFCI breaker?
Hello Mike, The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU Part # HP21404t installation requirements are a 60amp dedicated breaker. There is no indication in the Owners Manual that a GFCI breaker is required.
How many amp breaker does this require?
Hello- The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTUPart # HP21404t requires a minimum of a 50 AMP breaker.
I am a mechanical engineer. i am doing much more complicated installations and maintenance for marine systems. if i install the heat pump, does the warranty still be good?
As long as you're a licensed installer the warranty will be valid.
At what ambient temperature during the winter months does this unit shut off or stop heating?
Hi, This unit will stop heating once the outside temperature drops below 50°F.
I'm looking to purchase the Heat pump 140,000. I noticed there is a warranty. If I'm out of state who is going to diagnose and fix the unit?
Hi Tom, Once the unit is professionally installed Hayward will handle all warranty claims. If you have a issue with the unit you will have to contact Hayward and they will send a technician out.
Looking at the HP21404T (140K BTU). Previously responses have noted the need for a 60 amp breaker but the Hayward data sheet (http://www.hayward-pool.com/pdf/literature/heatpro-brochure-lithtpro15.pdf) lists a minimum ampacity of 42 amps and overload protection of between 50 (min.) and 60 (max.) amps. Therefore, wouldn't a 50 amp breaker work as well? Thanks.
According to the data sheet, a 50 amp is the Minimum Overload protection and 60 amps are the Maximum Overload Protection. Therefore, Hayward recommends a 60 amp breaker at installation. Feel free to contact Hayward Pool Products at 1-908-355-7995 if you have additional questions.
the Hayward heat pump 140,000btu some picture show square unit and some pictures and description says it is round Which is it round or square?
Hello Philo, the HP21404t Hayward Heat Pro is a square unit with the dimensions 30.25" w x 34" d x 44" h
I am looking to replace a broken gas heater. Other than to check to see if the location where the old heater is has the clearance required for this unit, what else do I need to check/get for the conversion from gas to electric?
Hi Deb, You will also need a dedicated 60 amp 230 volt breaker to operate this unit and an external by-pass if the flow rate exceeds 75 GPM.
Should you use a timer switch with this unit or is that not needed? Does it turn completely off when the pool pump has turned off? Will the display stay on? Thanks for the help!
Hi, A timer is not needed to control this unit, the unit does not turn completely off when the pool pump turns off. The unit will only run once the flow sensor is activated.
I understand the unit can be controlled by an external device but the TCO allows the heat pump to control the pool pump to keep the water temp at the set point. From what I understand a remote system just allows turn on/off of the heat pump.
Hi Tom, This unit is not equipped with a TCO, only the HP21104TC has that feature.
Does this unit have the capability to use a time clock override (TCO) system? Are there any heat pumps that use R-410A that have TCO?
Hi Tom, This unit has the capability to be controlled by an external controller and uses R-410A.
a 24 X14 in ground pool with deep end to 6.5 feet, and a 6 foot round spa will be how many gallons and what size Heat Pump??
Hi Jim, A pool with the dimensions and dept can range from 9,400-11,900 gallons depending on whether it's free form or rectangle. I would recommend no less than a 95,000 BTU unit. This 140,000 BTU unit will heat the pool much faster.
This unit needs a 2" connection from the heat pump to my in-line chlorinator and my vari-flow valve (pump side). when I get to the chlorinator port and vari-flow port, how do I reduce it? Thanks
Hi Mike, This unit has 2" unions but if you have 1.5" pipes you can purchase 2"-1.5" PVC Reducing Coupling in order to use it.
Am I correct in assuming that the flow rate to the heater can be adjusted by the valving?
Hi Bob, That is correct, you can adjust the water floe to the heater by installing a bypass.
Hello, I have a few questions, if I may. I'm in Connecticut. Backyard installation with @65% shade. 24' round, 52" walls. Preferred temp @85*. Is this unit too much for our situation? Would like to swim from early May to end of September. Also--granted going to hire an electrician for the electrical, but can a homeowner handle the rest of the installation? Thanks, cheers!
Hi Kevin, You can really oversize a pool heater to a pool, this unit will heat your pool. In order to maintain the manufactures warranty all parts of the installation has to completed by a authorize installer.
Is this unit energy star rated?
Hi Michael, This unit is AHRI which is the "EnergyStar" for Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration products.
I'm interested in the hp 21404t. Some where I read on these units I can install a contractor to run my pump when the heater calls for heat. Can you email me the diagram or drawing for that connection. Also should I have a pressure switch so the heater won't start until the pump pressure is adequate (30#)
HI Bob, The only info we have on this unit is the Hayward HeatPro HP21404T Owners Manual.
Does the unit come fully charged with freon or equilevent
Yes, this unit comes with Freon inside the unit.
When hooking up the bypass valves to and from the heat pump, are you using just ball valves that are either on or off? Or do I have to install diverter valves for that. The Pic shows 3 bypass valves. Just wanted to be sure.
On page 9 of this manual these valves look to be 3 2 way valves. They can be either ball or diverter types.
When hooking up the 140,000 but heat pump, normal plumbing shows the automatic chlorinator installed past the heat pump with a back flow preventer. No problem. My question is can you use the chlorine sticks in the skimmer basket safety with the Hayward Heat Pump. This would have chlorine coming from the skimmer basket to the pump, filter and then the Heat Pump before going back to the pool. Will this damage the Heat Pump?
Hello Jerry, I would never suggest putting any form of chlorine into your skimmer. Doing so will damage your pump, filter, and heater. The purpose of the check valve between the chlorinator and the heat pump is to prevent concentrated amounts of chlorine from entering the heat exchanger. By putting chlorine into the skimmer would send the very highly chlorinated water through your filtration system.
Does the Hayward Heat Pro 140,000BTU also cool the pool during the summer?
Hello Levi, this unit is only heat. If you wanted a Heat/Cool you would need to go with either RayPaks R8350TI-E-HC or Pentair's 460937.
Where can I purchase the pvc reducer for the Hayward HP2140T, I need to go down to a 1 1/2 inch pipe?
Hi Pete, You can purchase a PVC reducer at your local hardware or plumbing store.
I have has 1.5" pipe system, can the heat pump be hooked up with the smaller pipe then the 2 inch?
Hello, You would run 2" PVC from the heater then use a reducer to take it to 1.5" to fit your lines.
Will this heat pump be sufficient for a 30,000 gallon pool on Long Island , NY.? My wife likes the temp at about 89 degrees.
Yes, the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump, model# HP21404t will be a great fit for your pool size, and location during the swim season. I best recommend the use of a Solar Blanket or a liquid form of a Solar Blanket, to help prevent evaporation. Preventing evaporation will assist in retaining the heat produced by the Heat Pump. Click here to view Natural Chemistry Cover Free (liquid form). Click here to view the options for Solar Blankets.
Is this unit compatible with penair automation?
Hello- The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU HP21404t will be able to be turned on and off by your Pentair Automation, but you will not be able to control the temperature on the heat pump.
Can the heat pump be plumbed with 1.5" pipe?
Yes, you can plumb the heat pump with 1.5" pipe. Please note that you will need to use a 2" to 1.5" reducer fitting.
can the 140000 btu unit be installed in an open room in the pool house
No, Heat pumps can not be installed indoors. Per the manufacturer, on page 6 of the owner's manual, it states: "The pool heat pump is designed for outdoor installation and should not be installed in a fully enclosed area, such as a shed, garage, etc."
I am installing my heat pump relatively close to an air conditioner compressor. Any concerns I should have about that? What kind of a clearance should I have from the compressor?? 12"?
Thank you for your question. A minimum clearance of 72 inches should be allowed above the unit for unrestricted air discharge. The unit must not be installed under a porch. Any side of the unit should be located at least 24 inches from a wall or from any other obstruction for unrestricted air intake and service access.
Are these units refurbished? I was told they were by a retail store that was 1000 more than what you are asking for.
Hello. No, the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU PART# HP21404T is not refurbished. If we offer anything refurbished it will be clearly stated. We have a Swimming Pool Clearance section you can visit at http://www.inyopools.com/swimming-pool-clearance.aspx?Keywords=clearance or click here to view.
Is this unit compatable with the Jandy automatic control system.
Hello Carolyn, Jandy automation will only be able to fully control Jandy products. It will turn on this unit but will not allow you to adjust the temperature.
What are the differences between a "Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump HP21404T (140,000 BTU)" and a "Hayward EasyTemp Inground Pool Heat Pump HCB140BTA (140,000 BTU)"?
Hi Thom, The Hayward EasyTemp Inground Pool Heat Pump HCB140BTA and the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump HP21404T are the same unit just sold under a different name.
Is there an installation package where someone can come and install this?
Unfortunately we do not offer an installation service. If you have trouble finding an installer, you can contact Hayward and they can recommend a local installer.
Interested in the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU. Is this for an inground or above ground pool?
Hello Cathy - The HP21404T can be used on inground or above ground pools.
I bought my Hayward hp21404t pool heater from you guys this year. Do you have a winter cover available for this heater that is specifically made for this heater. Thanks
Hi, I am in Gainesville FL. Our large pool is about 1000 sqt. in surfase area and about 45000 gallon. Usually, the swiming season is from middle May to middle september because my wife is sensitive to the cold. She hopes she can extend the swimming season. She hopes the water tempeture can be above 80 degree at least. Is one Hayward HP21404T Heat Pro 140000 BTU Ahri Pool Heater will be good enough for the large pool ? If not, is it possible to paralelly connect two heat pumps?
Hello, Yes the the HP21404t is going to be large enough for your pool and will do great in Florida weather. Do also recommend buying a solar blanket to retain the heat the heat pump has added to your pool
After ordering the heat pump how long will it take to ship to our house. We live in Columbia, MD zip code 21044.
Hello,l Shipping to your area for this Heat Pump will take 5-7 business days.
On your website, it is recommended that we use a 60 Amps breaker for the Hayward Heat Pro Pump 140, 000 BTU but the name plate inside the pump says 70 Amps. Do you know if we could use a 60 or it has to be 70? Thanks.
Linda, A 60 amp breaker is required, also the HeatPro® Heat Pumps For In-ground Pools and Spas (LITHTPRO15) from the Hayward website states that the maximum breaker is 60 amps. I would recommend calling Hayward at 908-355-7995 just to confirm.
Yes I understand the location for the intake of air but I mean is there a restriction to the distance to the pool for security reason. Is there a minimum distance required?
Linda- The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump Hp21404t does not have a restriction on distance, it is usually installed on a equipment pad next to the rest of your pool equipment.
How far does the Hayward Heat Pump 140, 000 BTU need to be from the pool? Is there a safety requirement?
Linda, The heat pump needs to be installed in an open space. There are distance requirements on page 6 of the owner's manual.
Will a dedicated 50amp breaker be enough for this heat pump? I noticed the manual "recommends" 60 amp, but one answered question one this page suggest 50 amp. I am planning to use a dedicated 240v / 50amp line previously used for a large hot tub.
Hi Edward, A 50 amp breaker would not be larger enough you would need a 60 amp breaker for the Hayward HP21404t heat pump.
Is this the correct heater for my setup?: 26,500gal in-ground w/ floor cleaning system. A.O. Smith 3HP/3450RPM single speed pump motor (SQ1302V1). No inline chlorination. Cartridge filter. Located Cincinnati, OH... looking to extend swim season a few weeks on either end and maintain temp 80-84 May-Sept.
Hi Edward, Based on the specifications you supplied us on your pool, this would be the heat pump we would suggest for you.
We live in south jersey and open our pool from 6/1 to mid October. What size heat pump do you recommend to heat a 20,000 gal. Pool to 90 degrees F.
Hi Don, The 140,000 BTU heat pump will be sufficient enough to maintain your 90 degree water during the colder months.
I have a 16 x 32 in ground pool with approx 18,000 gallons . I live in RI and just want to run heater may thru early sept. how many btu do I need on a heat pump. what model do you recommend,thank Thanks
Hi John, This would be the heat pump I would suggest for a 16' x 32' pool in RI. You could possibly go down to the 125,000 BTU unit but the pricing difference is minimal and this heat pump will heat your pool quicker.
I AM LOOKING TO PURCHASE A HAYWARD HEAT PUMP(HEAT PRO) AND HAVING PROBLEM TRYING TO FIGURE WHICH MODEL TO PURCHASE. MY POOL IS ABOUT 13000 GALLONS WITH SELF CLEANING.FOR THE SMALL DIFFERENCE IN PRICE OF THE UNITS(65,85,110, 140 BTU ) I AM WONDERING IF IT MAKES SENSE TO BUY THE HP21404T BECAUSE IT WILL BE ABLE TO HEAT THAT AMOUNT OF GALLONS MORE EFFICIENTLY THUS NOT USING MORE ELECTRICITY. IS MY THOUGHT PROCESS WRONG.
Bob, Yes, It will make sense and be more efficient to go with the bigger unit because it will heat your pool faster and more efficiently.
1) I have a Pentair Intellifloxf- How to I tell what the GPM output of the pump is to make sure I'm not exceeding the heat pump requirement? 2) Can the heat pump be set to run a timed schedule like my pool pump.
Hello Mike, You can install a flow meter in the line to measure the amount of GPM's you are getting at the place where you would plum in the heater.The heat pump will run like an AC unit. SO set it to a temp and it will rise till that temp is met and then it will turn off.
Does having someone install the heat pump who is not an authorized Hayward technician void the warranty? I am aware that all repairs or service following the installation must be done by a certified Hayward technician.
This is the terminology taken straight from the Hayward Heat Pump Pool Heater Limited Warranty ( It is on page 22 of the manual ) " This warranty is valid only if the product is installed according to the HAYWARD specifications. " The best suggestion is to either have your installer call Hayward to get the specs ( 908-355-7995 ) or for you to call and make sure it is in accordance with there warranty department.
Is this unit a factory refurb or factory new? If factory new, how could one confirm it? Thanks, Dan
These are factory new. Any other models we carry from time to time are only scratch and dent labeled as such.
what is the operating dBa of the 140k BTU unit?
Mickey, Unfortunately Hayward doesn't provide this information because it's not something thats done at testing.
will this heat a 16 x 32 with a 10 foot L inground pool and does it corrode from the chemicals
The 140,000 BTU heat pump will heat a pool your size. It will not corrode as long as the water is properly balanced and maintained.
I have a 25,000 gal., chlorine, pool. If the ambient temp is 60 degrees, is this unit large enough to raise the water temp to 72 degrees?
Hello Len - The 140k BTU heat pump would be sufficient for 60° ambient temperature. We would recommend using a solar blanket along with the heat pump.
Would the Hayward HP21404T Heat Pro 140000 BTU work for 28 round above ground pool? Do I need anything special for installation? Thank you.
Yes, this will work for your pool. You'll need a dedicated 50amp power supply and must be hard plumb no flex pipe or hoses. Here's a link to the manual.
How long does it take to receive a heater from time of purchase?
Hello Bobby - We quote 7-10 business days for delivery of truck line shipments.
Is this unit black or almond color?
Hello Don - The Hayward HP21404T is black.
Is the current picture for this model the correct one? I thought it was more of a round footprint for the 140,000 btu model.
Hello Bobby - The picture is accurate. The HP21404T is a square unit.
Can I install this heat pump inside an equipment room?
Unfortuantely Hayward does not recommend installing the heat pump indoors.
Is the refrigerant in Hayward heat pumps environmentally safe?
Yes. Hayward uses R-410A refrigerant in all their heat pumps.
Can a heat pump be installed under a deck?
No. Any installation that causes the air being discharged from the top of the heat pump to be recirculated back into the heat pump will cause a loss of capacity and efficiency in the heat pump. Installation of a heat pump under a deck, or a low over hang will allow the air being discharged to be drawn back in by the heat pump.
Can a heat pump be installed indoors?
Generally no. Heat Pumps work by transferring heat from the surrounding air to the pool water. If a heat pump is installed indoors there must be a continuous supply of warm air from which the heat pump can extract heat. If you must heat the air in the room before the heat pump can extract that heat to heat the pool, there would be no benefit to the heat pump.
If I have a large pool pump will I need to have a flow meter for the heat pump?
According to Hayward their heat pumps have a flow rate range of 30 to 70 GPM, with an optimum flow rate of 45 GPM. If your pump is capable of significantly more flow than this, a flow meter is recommended to insure the flow rate is within the prescribed range.
(1 out of 5 stars) actual KwH consumption of a Heat Pump will be 5-6 KwH per hour running.

you might wonder what those Heat Pumps really use on energy, you can compare. You will hear frequently that "Electric Heat Pumps are highly efficient costing owners on average $50-100 per month.” This is not true. The average KwH consumption of a Heat Pump with the pool pump will be between 5-6 KwH per hour, no matter what the temperature or your desired pool temperature is. This is about equal "running" cost to a gas heater where a gas heater is working faster. The HeatPump will produce about a ½ degree per hour

Pros: Easy install. Heats the pool very quickly when it's warm out.
I was a little worried about it being useful enough being in the Boston area, but I couldn't be happier. The delivery went perfect from Inyopools. Using a big wheeled handtruck, a couple of 2x4's as levers, some straps and a friend, we moved the heater across the yard and into position on a bed of rocks I framed out with some typical plastic edging. We rented a trencher to create a path for the new electrical circuit and had an electrician wire and ground it. I did the plumbing myself. We saved a bunch of money and now we can easily have the pool at 85-90F and could probably easily go higher. I time it so that the filter and heat pump are on during the day to take advantage of the warmer air, which is where the heat pump gets it heat from. Both kids AND adults use the pool now b/c it's so warm. We use a simple solar cover to keep some heat in. Night time swimming under the moon is awesome. We get tons of compliments on the temperature. So glad we got this done!

Pros: works great!
Live in Pgh PA, have a 27'round above pool. The week before Memorial Day weekend, I began running the heater on Thursday morning (a 90 degree day). 7am the heater read the pool water was 69 degrees. I set it at 82. When I got home from work it was 82!! IN 1 DAY! On Friday 7am I set it for 90 degrees and when I got home the pool was 90!! We swam all weekend, even at night, in warm bath-like water. The kids said "best investment ever"! I agree. It ended up costing me 1700 to run a heavy duty electric line (I had a 155' line from house breaker to the pool), and additional $500 for plumber to install the pvc and shut off valves. Costly, but it is already paying off by us swimming when we normally wouldn't be. Plus we will get an extra months use of the pool in the fall. I trust it will pay off. cant believe how fast it heated up the pool of 17,000 gallons.
(5 out of 5 stars) Well built, great looking heater !!

We received this heat pump in record time - extremely well packed !! It is a very sturdy, nice looking piece of equipment. Will have it installed next week and will update my review after we use it for a while.
