Want to buy a 140000 btu. Heat pump for my 18x36 inground pool. I live in Maryland. Is this an appropriate choice?
your answers on breaker size is confusing, you say 60 amp in necessary then say 50 is minimum requirement
This unit requires a 50 (min) or 60 (max) amp 230 volts breaker.
Do you have a Heywood dealer in the Naples, Fl area?
We do not have any storefronts but these units very often ship out of a Florida vendor.
Are the bypass valves necessary. Can i leave them open and run my pump when the heater is off?
HI, Tyler. A Manual Bypass is necessary for these top two reasons. If the flow rate of the pump exceeds the maximum flow rate of the unit and to cut off water to the unit when not in use. Yes, you can leave the valves open running water through the unit when it's not in use.
I live in Phoenix and have a 25,000 gallon pool with about 630 feet of surface area. Is there a formula to figure recommended BTUs?
Hello Patrick, there is a blog about Sizing Your Pool Heater, which takes you step by step on how to find the size you would like.
Is it necessary to pipe in a bypass valve. My current unit, an AquaComfort was not piped in that way.
Hi, Mario. I would recommend installing a manual bypass that way if your flow rate exceeds 75GPM you can regulate it and also shut off the flow to the unit when it's not being used.
I'm ready to buy this item. I'm replacing an AquaComfort unit that the nameplate says 230V. This Heat Pro calls for 240V. Will there be a problem? I'm not home for the next 2 weeks so I can't check the actual voltage in my home. Thanks
Hi, Mario. That will not be an issue as long as the breaker size is sufficient.
have a old kopek heat pump 100 btus will it be a lot of electrical or plumbing to install your 140 btu heat pump where old one is now and will it heat my 10.000 GALLON POOL FASTER AND WILL MY ELECTRIC USE BE MORE MY OLD HEAT PUMP IS NOW 14 YEARS OLD THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE
Hi, Don Wolfeld. You can use this Hayward 140K BTU unit as a replacement, however, the electrical and plumbing will be different. This unit requires a 50-60 amp 230 volts, single phase breaker.
where does the white neutral wire attach to in the hp21404t?
Hi. These units do not require a neutral wire for the electrical connection. This unit requires a 60 amp, 230 volts, single phase electrical connection.
Will this work in the Pittsburgh area for a 24 foot 54 inch deep pool? My biggest concern is extending the season heck it's August and we are seeing temps in 50s at night I already use solar cover which helps but when the day light temps start to stay lower it's going to make the temps suffer. been contiplating the 125k or this one.
Hello Lorenzo- For your area and pool size I would recommend going no smaller than a 140k Heat pump. This will get you the best efficiency as well as extend the season to April-September. I would also recommend using a solar cover or liquid solar cover such as Natural Chemistry COVER FREE 1 Gallon - 07109 to retain the heat in the pool.
What are the electrical requirements for the HP21404T
This unit will be single phase 60 HZ, requires a Minimum Overload Protection 50 with a max 60 amp breaker.
The owners manual says to use 2" PVC pipes, but the description says the unions are CPVC -- which is not compatible with PVC. Are the unions really CPVC?
Bob, Yes the unions are CPVC. PVC is a thermoplastic polymer, while CPVC is a thermoplastic produced by the chlorination of PVC resin. PVC is typically used for a wide number of applications, while CPVC is mostly used for hot and cold water pipes (pool heaters/heat pumps). They can be used/plumbed together.
does haywood 140000 btu pool heater come without a remote control
Michael, The Hayward Heat Pro does not have a remote control.
Does this unit have to be installed in the sun for maximum heating ability? My filter is currently installed in a shaded area of my property.
Hi, Dennis. This unit does not have to be installed in direct sun light. It must be installed outside with 24" of clearance on all side and 72" on the top.
HAVE A POOL 42 X 22 SUMMER AIR TEMPERATURE IS BETWEEN 65 TO 80 DEG. WOULD THE 140000 BTU PUMP WILL BE ENOUGH TO KEEP THE WATER TEMPERATURE AT 85 DEG
Hi, Frank. The HP21404T unit can be used to heat a 42' x 22' pool. If you want a faster temperature increase, then you may need to get multiple units.
I live in New York, Long Island. I have a saltwater pool , solar heat and I want to add the heat pump. The water from the solar will go into the heat pump. That is not a problem is it? Then from the heat pump to the salt water chlorinator and then to the pool , how does that sound?t
John, That shouldn't be an issue. Please be sure to install a bypass and also a check valve in between the salt cell and heat pump.
I'm looking for a heat pump that has automatic bypass so when the heater kicks off that I can still run my pool pump for filtering purposes.I normally just leave my pump on all the time.Everything I've read says that running your pool water through the heat pump will cause premature wear. I will install a manual bypass for extreme servicing of the heat pump if necessary but I don't want to have manually valve every time my heat pump is not calling for heat. Do you know of any??
Joe, Unfortunately, none of the models we carry have an automatic bypass. You can install a manual one.
What should the ph, alkaline levels be for safe operation and warranty?
Hi, Adam. You will need to keep the pH at 7.4-7.6 ppm and the Total Alkalinity at 80 - 120 ppm.
Looking to purchase the Hayward HP21404t. Does this unit have an internal bypass valve? Want to be able to run pump for filtering, when not heating.
Joe, The heat pump does not have an internal bypass. A bypass will need to be plumbed in when the heat pump is installed.
Hi Regarding HP21404T The refrigerant line water jacket has fractured at the coupling. Where can I find part numbers to order replacement parts? Clive 250 715 8632
Clive, I would recommend calling Hayward with the serial number on the unit to confirm if the parts you are looking for are available as replacement parts. You can reach them at 888-429-9273.
Just purchased the Hayward HeatPro HP21404T and was wondering which port is lower on the heat exchanger side of the system. I want to add a drain to the plumbing but don't know if the IN port or OUT port is lower to on the coil. Please advise. Thanks, John
John, Both ports are on the back of the heater next to each other. One is not higher or lower than the other.
Looking to purchase a Haywaerd heat pump for a 24" wide X 54" high round pool which model would be the best one. Also what is the added utility cost per month with the heater.
Natnor, For a 24' round pool, I would recommend at least a 95k btu model or higher. Please keep in mind that these units run on 230/240v and need at least a 60 amp breaker. The cost can vary. I would recommend contacting your electric company with the specs on the heat pump. They will be able to calculate the approximate cost.
Just a comment-As there seems to be competing answers on required breaker size, Hayward technical support has told me that 50 amp breaker is fine on this unit. Perhaps they are wrong.
Hi Robert, That is good information to know! We will post your comment to the website. Thank you very much for the information.
I am considering ordering this unit. Main question I have, is it already charged or will I have to charge the freon myself?
Hi Duane, This is already charged with refrigerant.
What is the warranty for this device? What are the steps to follow if it is delivered with a problem or a problem occurs during the season? Do I call you and you dispatch a local technician or do I deal directly with Hayward?
Hi, Ricardo. The Warranty Terms are available in the HeatPro® HP21404T Manual. If the unit has any issues prior to installation like damages you'll contact us, once the unit is installed you will have to contact Hayward.
Is a 50 amp circuit enough to supply this unit or must it be a 60 amp?
Hi Sal, This will require a 60 amp circuit.
I have a free 50 amp circuit out by my pool. Will that be enough amperage to operate this heat pump or does it need to be 60 amp?
Hello, Unfortunately, you will need a 60 amp breaker for this model heat pump.
This is the second time I send to you this question: I'm interested in purchasing the heat pump above; when do I have to make the online payment for receiving the package between 1st and 5th of July ? Adress for delivery is Pittsford NY 14534. Thank you, Dobrin
We would suggest Monday June 26th.
Knowing that the HP21402T requires a 60 amp breaker at the house electrical panel, what should the wire gauge that will be running out to the unit- 12AWG or 10 AWG. Second, is it recommended to have a manual shut off next to the unit!
Allen. To determine the wire size you will need to consult an electrician. A manual shut off it not required. the unit is activated by the water pressure switch once flow is detected.
Will the electric heat pump work if installed in a concrete room next to the pool filter instead of in the outside air
Hi Tina, no the heat pump does need to be outside as the heat pump draws in the outside air to heat the water. When the heat pump is heating it actually outputs cold air and if the heat pump is inside then the air in the room gets cold and then the heat pump has a hard time heating.
Hi, I'm interested in purchasing the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU - HP21404; I'll be overseas till early July; Can you organize the transport so as to deliver the unit between JULY 1st and JULY 5th ? I can have a spot for installing on July 6th. My adress is in Pittsford NY 14534 Thank you, Dobrin
Hi Dobrin, I would suggest placing your order on June 26th to hit this delivery window.
Will this heater be large enough for a 18 x 36.5 foot inground pool. My pool depth ranges from 8.5 ft. to 3. 5 feet.
Hi, Doreen. Yes, this 140,000 BTU unit will be able to heat an 18' x36'.5" inground pool depending on your location and desired pool temperature.
Please let me know what the minimum temperature outside has to be for the Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU to start working. thank you, Dobrin
Hello, depending on temperature best results are when 60 degrees and higher.
What is the minimum temperature the unit start working ?
Hello, depending on desired temperature around 60-70 degrees, these are more working off flow more than temperature.
IS YOUR PRODUCT BRAND NEW AND SEALED ?
Yes, these units are all new and sealed unless specifically stated as other wise.
Why are Hayward heat pumps so much lighter than similar pumps? Is there different material--better or cheaper? Any ideas.
Hi, BobNJ. It all depends on if you're comparing the unit shipping/carton weight of one unit to the net weight of another. Some brochures provides both some provides one or the other.
where is the model and serial # located on the pump
Hi, Phil. The serial number is located on the inside of the unit, you'll have to remove the front panel.
Is there a picture showing where the electric is attached to the heat pump so I can figure how much I need. A pic for the 125 and 140000.
Page 12 of the Heatpro manual shows the wiring diagram.
WE HAVE TURNED ON THE HEATER ITS BLOWING COLD AIR OUT OF THE TOP VENT THE POOL IS NOT HEATING UP we set the gauge for pool and turned up to the desired temperature with all the sounds like it is working why is there no heat?
Hi, Robert. Heat Pump takes in heat and releases cold air while heating. It's also designed to slowly heat. If you think the unit is not working to can contact the manufacturer or a technician to take a look at the unit.
Does this unit cool as well as heat?
Hi. Unfortunately, this unit does not have the ability to cool.
I have 18 by 36 kidney shape pool with 8foot deep end. what size heat pump would I need
Hi. Yes, this unit is adequate to heat an 18'x36' pool. Keep in mind heat pumps are reliant upon the ambient air temperature.
I have 18 by 36 kidney shape pool with 8foot deep end. what size heat pump would I need
Hi. This 140,000 BTU Heat Pump is adequate to heat an 18' x36' pool. If you would like a smaller unit we will need to know the desired pool temperature, the state you're located in and the desired run time.
My pool is 18' wide x 43' long (rectangle), 3.5 to 8' deep, Approx 34000.00 gallons... Will the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU heat this pool properly? We want to sustain a temperature of around 70 - 78 degrees.
Hi Brian, Yes this would be a suitable heater for your sized pool and temp. requirements. Please note that this would be to just extend the season by a month or so in the spring as well as the fall and would not maintain these temps. in the winter if you're up north.
Is this unit overkill for my 24' above ground pool?
Hello Tia, that depends on how quickly you want to heat your pool. 110k heat pump would be fine.
Other literature suggests this HP requires a 50 Amp breaker, could you clarify whether it is 50 or 60? Thank you.
Hi. A 60 amp 230 volt breaker is required for this unit.
Does this unit come with the union connectors to plumb to pool input/output lines?
Yes, these units come with the unions.
Where is this heater manufactured?
Hi. These units are manufactured in the USA.
So the wiring requires a 240 supply single phase so where does the common go? L1 and L2 connect together then common connect on second terminal?
Hi. The common can go to either the L1 or L2 terminal. This unit must be professionally installed to maintain the warranty.
Hi, I'm looking to replace my heater. My ingound pool is roughly 20×40' and 33,000 gallons. Is this the right size?
Hi, Chris. This unit will be sufficient for your size pool.
Is there a built in GFI on this unit or does one have to be installed?
Hi, Brian. This unit does not come with a built-in GFI, once will have to be installed.
What is the kilowatts for this heater
Hi. We only have the input kW which is 7.2.
Electric or gas if it is electric what would I need to put this into my electrical service box
Hi, Mike. This unit will need to be powered by a dedicated 60 amp 240 volt breaker.
I'm thinking of purchasing either the Hayward HP21404t or the Pentair 460934. Both are 140K BTU but I'm not sure which one to select. What are the major differences?
Hi, Diego. The location of plumbing and the footprint of the units are the major difference.
My breaker running to the pool is currently 60amps. Currently I have a motor (11amps), blower (5.5amps) and a spa motor 14amps connected to the electrical box. Will I need to increase the total amps to run the HP21404T Hayward heat pump?
That heat pump needs its own 60 amp breaker.
I have a pool around 22,000 gallons, about 490 ft2. I live in central CA & would like to heat the water 15 degrees over ambient temp 3-4 months of the year. If it's 70 degrees outside, for example, I'd like to get the pool water to 85 degrees. How much electricity (kwH) would you estimate one of your heat pumps to use for that on a monthly basis? I was looking at a 140,000 BTU unit. Would that size be correct? Thanks.
You would be looking at about $110-160 a month. It will be on the higher end initially because it will have to go from 70 to 85 degrees but once it is there all it has to do is regulate your water temperature and will go toward to lower end for cost.
I have a 20,000 gallon Pool in central Florida. We like to keep our pool around the middle 80's from April thru October. About how hours per day would you need to run your heat pump?
It will depend on the weather everyday, but the heat pump is set up to turn on whenever the water temperature goes below what you set your desired temperature and runs until it is back to that temperature, and will run as long as your pool pump is on.
i just bought one of these from you guys. Question: what is the height of the centerline of the inlet and outlet ports from the ground? thx!
Hi. Unfortunately, we're unable to provide you with the info that you're requesting at this time.
what is the length width on model hp21404t heat pump
The dimensions are 44" in height, 30.25" in width, and 34" in depth.
Can we use the heat pro in an above ground pool? Pool size is 12,0000 also wondering if this pump is more than we need. We love in New Hampshire.
Yes, you can use it for an above ground pool as long as you are able to hook up a 60 amp breaker for that heat pump.
I have a 18x40 with an L shape pool, maybe 33K gallons. I am looking for a sufficient heat pump (electric). What do you suggest. I was looking at the HP21404T Heatpro, but open to other options. Live in Massachusetts and looking to keep pool in low 80's from Mid May and through Sept. Thanks.
The 140,000 BTU model is going to be the most efficient for your pool size and location.
Do you recommend a concrete pad for installation and if so, does this unit have attachments to secure it on that pad? What would be the minimum dimensions of the pad if you recommend?
Hello Eric, There are clip attachments that come with your heat pump unit to secure your heat pump the the concrete. Standard size for the slab is 3x3.
Will the Haywood Pool heater HP21404T work for an inground pool 18x36 33,000 gallon?
Hi Lisa, Yes this would be the Heat Pump we suggest for a 33,000 gallon pool. Please note that heat pumps do take longer to heat a pool than a gas heater but they cost a fraction of the price to operate, so you can run the heat pump longer without spending a ton of money on operational costs.
I live in Arizona and am selling my house and need to replace our electronic heat pump. We have a 15,000 gallon pool and want to buy the least expensive unit possible that will work for our pool. What do you suggest? Thank you.
With a pool that size and location you would be good with the 125,000 BTU model, HP21254T.
Is it ok to use aluminum wire from my 60 amp breaker to my sub panel, about 65 ft away, then use copper wire from the sub panel to the HP21404t. This is what the electrician has suggested.
Hello Bob- Unfortunately, you would have to contact Hayward at 908-355-7995 as we do not deal with installations.
I have a 30000 pool spa combo in NJ. Would this pump be big enough to heat both? Only looking to use it may-sept.
Hi, Dennis. This unit will be able to heat a 30,000 gallon pool.
Just purchased the HP21404t Heat Pump from you. Wondering if you have fitting that work best with the PVC connection on the unit?
Hello Ryan- Here is a link to the unions for the heat pro, http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352042064.htm?Keywords=spx3200unkit. Is that what you are looking for?
Hello. I live near woodstock, NY. Have a in ground pool. 25,000 gallons. Partial shade most of the day. Would the 140K BTU heat pump keep this size pool at the desired temperature during the swim season(May to Oct)? Thank you for your help.
Hi, Joseph. Yes, this unit will be sufficient for your size pool.
I live in Connecticut and have a 17 x 42 foot in ground pool. I would like to keep the pool heat at 80 from May to mid September. Would the Hayward HP21404T be sufficient?
Hi Ed, The HP21404T would be sufficient for your size pool.
Hello. I live near Albany, NY. Have a 16' x 33' in ground pool. 25,000 gallons. Partial shade most of the day. Looking to maintain temperature around 82 degrees during swim season (mid-May to mid-September). I use a solar cover religiously. Would the 140K BTU heat pump keep this size pool at the desired temperature during the swim season? Thank you for your help.
Hello Mike- The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU HP21404t would be able to heat your pool to your desired temperature for your swimming season.
I live in Tampa Florida and have a 28ftx21 foot salt water pool about 10,500gal is the 140,000btu overkill
Hi, Mark. This unit will provide more heat than you'll need for your size pool but it will heat your pool faster.
I live in Tampa Florida and have a 28ftx21 foot salt water pool about 10,500gal is the 140,000btu overkill
Hi, Mark. This unit will provide more heat than you'll need for your size pool but it will heat your pool faster.
Do you do installs of pool heat pumps?
Hello, Kevin. Unfortunately, we do not offer service or installation on equipment. I recommend contacting Hayward at 1-866-772-2100 for a recommendation of installers in your area.
how big of a propane container do I need for a 14.000 btu heater?
Hello- This heat pump is electric and does not require any propane or natural gas. All you will need is a breaker for this unit.
is there sales tax to florida?
Hello Walter- Yes there will be sales tax if shipping to Florida.
I need to know amperage?
Hi, Frank. This unit requires a 60 amp 240 volt breaker. The operation amperage will vary depending on several factors.
How would we unload the heat pump off the back of the semi that would deliver it, this would be delivered to our residence. Please let un know
Our heat pump orders are delivered by truck with lift a lift gate. The carrier is obligated to deliver it to the end of the property so it would between the home owner and the carrier if they would need to arrange for the unit to be brought somewhere else on the property.

what type og gas does thisunit use, and how mant pounds does it take from emptey to full
That is a heat pump so it runs off of electricity not propane or natural gas like a heater does.
I have a 20 ft x 36 ft in-ground pool 720 SF surface area and 24,300 gal volume. My pump is a 1 HP size and uses 1-1/2" dia size intake lines. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. What is the correct size Heat pump and is the pump size and plumbing adequate?
Yes, the 140k model would be the one you want if you are trying to extend your pool season during the summer months. If you are trying to heat the pool during the winter months or you have a spa you will want a propane or natural gas heater instead of a heat pump.
If I order this heat pump, how long will it take to deliver to Valrico, FL. 33596.
Hello Ron- Truckline delivery of heat pumps usually takes about 5-7 business days for delivery depending on when you are set up an appointment with the delivery company.
Does Haywood have a heater with remote control
Hayward does but it is a part of the automation system that controls pretty much everything.
how far from the filter can I place my heat pump, and does it matter if it in the direct sunlight or shaded from a high fence, thinking a 140,000 btu for a 14,000 gal in ground pool, is this over kill? swimming from late may to early sept in the central Pa area
There is not a set distance just as long as it is between the filter and the chlorinator. It does not matter how much sunlight it receives either.
i live in mississippi have a 16x32 pool indoor salt water will this be enough to heat the water it stay 80 to 100 degrees most of the time here
Yes, This will work. You can figure around a degree an hour.
I have a project in up-state New York that has 123,000 Gallons. Which Heat pump unit(s) should I recommend? Thanks
I would recommend a commercial grade heater, natural gas or propane, over a heat pump. To heat that many gallons it would take way too long for a heat pump. I would recommend a Power Max heater not smaller than 750,000 BTU.
I have a 24'x54" AGP and live in the Seattle area, would the HP21404t be big enough to extend my season?
It will allow you to open your pool sooner and close your pool later.
If I order the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU- HP21404t today, how quickly will I receive it?
It will take 3-6 business days depending on where you are located.
Hi I live in Florida and would like to by this pump, pool+spa. My dimension is 30ft/17th is it enough? Also is the shipping free? How much to install a pump? Thanks
Hi, Franck. This unit is sufficient for your size pool and spa and the shipping is free. Unfortunately, you will have to contact a pool professional to get a quote for the installation because we do not do any installation.
have 15000 gal pool Jupiter fl, w spa is this too big
Good morning Wally, This size is ideal for you. The bigger the better and with heat pumps it is the way to go.Plus, Living in Florida is the best place to be as heat pumps pull heat from the air.
I have a Wilkes 24' X 48" round above ground pool. Would it be overkill to go with the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump - 140,000 BTU? I would think in theory, it would be more efficient / heat quicker than the smaller units.
No it would not be overkill. Bigger when it comes to heaters and heat pumps are usually going to be more efficient. It will be even more efficient if you get a solar cover to go along with it. Then you are heating your pool faster and retaining the heat longer when you are not in the pool.
Can I use your 140,000btuh heat pump and run the water through a propane pool boiler? Basically, set the propane boiler at 85 degrees and when the heat pump can't make that hot of water, have the boiler raise the temperature? I'm assuming the flow rates will have to work for both. Rob
Good afternoon Rob, Sorry, I cannot really give you an answer to this question. It is theoretically possible. But you would have to have a perfect setup for this and by doing this you possibly void the warranty's. I would call Hayward tech support and run this by them. Hayward 1-800-657-2287
We live in Lake County Florida and have a 30,000 pool we would like to use year round. What is the most efficient size heat pump and how many degrees per hour will it raise the water temperature?
Good afternoon Jerry, You have a pretty decent sized pool. You are gonna want to Have at least 140,00 BTU's . The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU - HP21404t is a good unit.
What is difference between Hayward HP's 140 BTU rectangular or round units? Basically, Easy temp versus heat pro? Also, what is the COP for each? I could not find it listed. Thank you, Jackie
The round Hayward model is the 110,000 BTU unit, the only one that has a round shape, the rest of Hayward's heat pumps are square or rectangle.
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.
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.
4 to 8 hrs
PVC tools, cleaner and cement
Replace an old 15+ yr old heater. I removed the old cutting PVC tubing, replacing with new to new heat pump with the help of my 17 yo son. The only thing I hired out for was the electrical as I know it was already wired to the heater but wanted it inspected anyway from a licence electrician as this is dealing with water and electricity. Very simple to install with provided PVC coupler, I was slower than a professional as I took my time and do not do this type of work much. What a difference with this heat pump. Either technology has changed drastically or this Hayward is far superior. The old heat pump would be on all day long unless the temp outside was 85+ degrees. The Hayward even on 75 degree days, it quickly gets the pool to temp and shuts down. Much better on electric bill.
1 to 2 hrs
Screwdriver, large spanner wrench
I researched heat pumps for quite awhile. Liked the idea of this larger pump for my small 10,000 gallon pool. I called INYO with some questions. Since they are located in Florida I figured they would understand my Florida issues. They were quite helpful. When I explained that I only had one day off to receive the package they assured me their trucking firm would call and arrange. I ordered this heater from them because of three reasons:
1) Their price was the same as others (actually lower considering sales tax)
2) They knew the product and sounded knowledgeble
3) They accepted pay pal which helped my decision.
The trucking company called as promised. They arranged my delivery on my day off. They performed as promised.
The best feature of the purchase was the video I received from INYO in how to accept delivery of a large package and how to inspect the product. Very helpful.
The Heater itself was a breeze to install. The 2" pipe fittings worked perfectly. The only issue was that the electrical connector screws were so tight that it took four strong men to untighten them. I guess there are worse problems than that. Get a large handle screwdriver so you can loosen these screws.
The heater works as promised. I heat up about 2 degrees an hour. This heater cost me about $3 per day to run. My old one was $10 per day.
The most difficult part of this job is moving the heater in position. I used a two wheel dolly with large wheels after uncrating the heater. It is a two man job to wheel it around your yard and place it in position. A one man job after that. I am a novice and have never done a job like this before. It is easy. Just screw down the electrical wires and tighten the screw on plumbing connectors. The exact opposite of how you remove the old heater.
I could not be more pleased with my experience.

Excellent price compared to other sources. Got it installed by a professional (to get the max. warranty). It operates with low noise. After a few days I noticed that the temperature measurement was off. INYOPOOLS sent a contractor for replacing the sensor. After that everything was OK. It did work for one summer now. Harry

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!
(5 out of 5 stars) WOW...AWESOME!!!

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.
