I have a Hayward VS pump. What minimum speed would you recommend for the heater to activate? Will the addition of a heather slow down the normal flow of water at the return jets?

A     Answered on 7/5/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Anthony. The RPM setting will be based on the pump model and the Total Dynamic Head (TDH) of your pool. Adding a heater can slow down the water flow.

Our pad has a slight angle to allow for runoff, we plan to have the front/back of the unit facing the side of the pad such that the sides will be on the high and low side of the pad for runoff. Will the unit operate correctly sitting at a slight angle ( probably 1 inch drop over 5 feet or so)?

A     Answered on 7/4/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jeff. The unit must be placed on a leveled pad, it has its own drainage for condensation runoff.

Can the Hayward Heat Pro heaters be left on all the time where they heat when the pool pump is running or do the need to be manually switched on and off each day while the pool pump is running to prevent equipment damage?

A     Answered on 6/14/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard. These Heat Pumps can be powered at all time using the water flow of the pump to turn it on. 

?     Asked on 6/13/2018 by Lorenzo DeCaria

I just had the heat pump installed and got it running today. I have a duel speed Hayward pump so I tried it on low first to see if it would be enough floww but got a HP error code. So I kicked it on high now and it's been fine. Just stinks that is happened as normally always leave the pump on low during the day. Now trying to figure out the best way to run this heater and pump. Any ideas welcome on what to do Hate to leave it on high but hate to not have heater on either.

A     Answered on 6/14/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello Lorenzo- Unfortunately these heaters, as you know, require a minimum flow rate to operate. You would need to either find a variable speed pump that you can program such as the PureLine Prime Variable Speed Pool Pump 1.65 HP - PL2605, or only heat the pool when necessary and on high speed. By getting the VS pump you would be able to find the lowest possible RPM to run the heater instead of being stuck with just High Speed as an option.

Will my Hayward HP 21404t heat pump shut off automatically when my pump shuts down? My pump is on a timer running 12 hours a day but my heat pump has no timer. Do I need to shut the heat pump off manually each day when the pump shuts off?

A     Answered on 6/12/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

The Heater has a flow switch that will detect when there is no water passing through the unit and will turn off the unit.

Is this heat pump reversible? I.e., can it also cool? A problem in Texas is water feels like bath water in summer. Lowering temperature by 5 or 10 degrees would be great. If this one is not reversible, could you suggest one that is?

I have not had a pool heater and am thinking about purchasing the 21404t. My thinking is the heater should not work when the pump is off. Is there a timer on the heat pump to coordinate it with the pool pump? This way the heater does not run when the pool pump is not running.

A     Answered on 5/24/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Andrew. Heaters are designed only to run once water flow is detected. It will not run if the pump is not running.

In ground pool. 15,000 gallons, ~600 sq ft surface area. Want to extend season by month in fall and month in spring, Live in Charlotte NC. Sun keeps water at nominally 80 degrees mid May through mid Sept. In summer would like to bump temp up to 84 from 80. Questions: (1.) would 125,000 BTU Heat Pro be OK? (2.) If 125,000 OK, would 140,000 do the job more economically?

A     Answered on 5/19/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Terry, Based on the information you supplied I would suggest the 140,000 BTU unit, you probably could get by with the 125,000 BTU unit but for the few hundred dollar difference I think you will be really happy having the extra BTU's during the colder months when you are trying to extend your pool season. I have this larger BTU unit and I have been quite happy with the results.

Hello Mike- The Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 140,000 BTU - HP21404t has an internal flow switch which will shut the heater off if the water flow becomes too low for the heater to safely operate, resulting in the heater turning itself off.

What is the benefit of the HP21404TC (low ambient) model? Compared to the basic HP21404T model. I know what size I need, I just need to know if it's worth spending the extra money on low ambient. I live in rockland county NY.

A     Answered on 4/30/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Joe, The HP21404TC can still operate at temperatures as low as 40F. This is useful especially in regions that experience cooler ambient temperatures. The standard version can only operate at temperatures of 50F and above.

Do I need a bypass valve? If so, what kind? Anything else needed to install this? Thank you

A     Answered on 4/5/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Automatic erosion type chlorinators, if used, must be installed downstream (between the heat pump and the pool) of the heat pump, and a check valve (or Hartford Loop) installed in a manner that will not allow the raw chlorine to drain back to the heat pump when the water pump is off. Failure to follow the instructions may result in property damage.The heat pump is designed for a maximum flow rate of 75 GPM. An External Bypass Assembly can be added to regulate the flow rate through the heat exchanger to prevent damage. Failure to install an External Bypass Assembly with a flow rate of 75 GPM or higher will void the warranty.

Can the heat pump plug into standard 120 gfci outlet that the pool pump is plugged into or does it need a dedicated line

A     Answered on 3/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello Rob this unit must be installed to it's own 42-60 amp dedicated breaker. This heat pump must be connected to a bonding grid with a solid copper conductor wire gauge 8 AWG or larger to comply with Article 680 of the NEC. All Hayward heat pumps are designed for copper conductors only. The National Electrical Code (NEC) in Article 680, and most other codes require that all metallic components of a pool structure, including reinforcing steel, metal fittings and above ground equipment, be bonded together with a solid copper conductor wire gauge 8 AWG or larger. The heat pump, along with pumps and other pool equipment must be connected to this bonding grid. A bonding lug is provided on the rear of the base pan of the heat pump to facilitate bonding.

Are the bypass valves necessary. Can i leave them open and run my pump when the heater is off?

A     Answered on 10/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

Is it necessary to pipe in a bypass valve. My current unit, an AquaComfort was not piped in that way.

A     Answered on 10/4/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 8/8/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 12/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

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.

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.

?     Asked on 4/27/2016 by

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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

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.

?     Asked on 4/16/2016 by Tom Dvorak

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.

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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

Can a heat pump be installed under a deck?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

?     Asked on 10/8/2013 by Guest

Can a heat pump be installed indoors?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

I didn't have a pool heater and the water was cold!

Written on 5/8/2018 by Guest

1. The hardest part of the whole process - getting the pool heater into position. This thing is big and heavy - over 300 lbs. Complicating matters is the fact that you are warned repeatedly to not tip the heater, to the extent there is an indicator on the box that shows if it has been tipped during shipment. So if you don't have a portable forklift, or you don't have a clear path to where it will be installed, plan on getting several strong people to help move it into position.
2. Once in position, it is, conceptually, very simple. Water in one port, water out the other. 220v power to the heater. The front comes off with 3 screws on the top and 2 in the bottom - this isn't specifically called out.
3. Plumbing was relatively simple, but with a couple of things to focus on - make sure you have a way to isolate the heater if you need to repair or replace it, and if you have any sort of inline chlorination system, make sure it is downstream of the heater, and separated by a check valve. And as with any pool plumbing - spend some time thinking through the arrangements of pipes and valves both for the convenience of usage, as well as minimizing the amount of pipe and the number of fittings so as to keep head pressure as low as possible.
4. Electrical is pretty simple with the big huge caveat that if you don't know what you are doing, hire a professional, or if it is required by local law, hire a pro. The concept isn't hard, but you need to make sure you use the right wire (6ga in my case), the right size breaker (50 amp) and that everything is hooked up and grounded correctly. The downside of doing something wrong here could be fatal, or best case, wreck your brand new (and expensive) heater.
5. The heater has to be connected to the bonding grid. Basically, everything metal in, or around the pool has to be connected together, so that there isn't a chance that two metallic objects with different electrical potentials get connected through you. This is SEPARATE from the electrical grounding that you've done as a part of the install. There is a wire clamp on the right side at the bottom. If you don't know what this is - another good time to call in the pros. Better to spend a little more up front than to electrocute someone on memorial day.
6. And that's about it. Turn it on, make sure it works.

Pipe into the heater from the filter, and out of the heater back to the pool, add a bypass valve and BAM, there you go= heated pool with a savings of over $1000!

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.

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.
