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.

Will the Haywood Pool heater HP21404T work for an inground pool 18x36 33,000 gallon?

A     Answered on 4/5/2017 by Patrick P.

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 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 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.

A     Answered on 1/3/2017 by Scott W.

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

A     Answered on 12/29/2016 by Adam Y.

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

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?

A     Answered on 12/5/2016 by Adam Y.

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.

A     Answered on 11/11/2016 by Scott W.

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.

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.

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.

Do I need a check valve for Hayward Chlorine feeder, the Hayward CL220 ?

A     Answered on 6/1/2016 by Alan M.

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.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 5/29/2016 by Alex V.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 4/28/2016 by Alan M.

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.

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?

A     Answered on 2/29/2016 by Andy O.

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.

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?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

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?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

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.

from San Diego, CA ()

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

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Works great, north of Boston

from Boston, MA ()

Pros: Easy install. Heats the pool very quickly when it's warm out.

Cons: None

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!!!

from Pittsburgh, PA ()

Pros: works great!

Cons: costly

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.
