I have a dedicated 40amp breaker on a 220 line. Would this be ok for the HP50TA heat pump or do I need to change the breaker size?
Good morning, yes a 40 amp breaker will be perfect for this unit.
I live in Virginia and have a 21' round, 54" deep above ground pool. Is this heater big enough for our pool, considering it will be open late May to early September.
Hello Jim- Based on your pool size and location I would recommend the Raypak Standard 103K BTU Digital Heat Pump - 016010 to be able to reach 85 from May to September.
I live in New Jersey and have an above ground pool 15' x 25' 52" high. Would/Can you recommend either a heat pump or gas heater and provide a link to both so I can research cost etc....and what would you recommend.
Hi, Joe. You can use the Heat Pump Sizing App to determine what size heat pump or gas heater would be best for you and how much it would cost.
Live in KENTUCKY. HAVE A 24 ft round pool. Would like to swim may to October. Temp at least 85. Is the 50,000 btu enough?
Hi, Ryan. You will need a higher BTU unit in order heat your pool to 85 degrees in May. A 50K BTU may not be able to efficiently achieve that, I would recommend an 80K or 95K BTU unit.
Hi whaT IS THE NORMAL OPERATING AMPS FOR THE HP50TA HEAT PUMP
Hi. The nominal power required is 10 amps.
Hello. I live in Florida and have an inground pool 11x26 feet and approx 10k gallons. I was wondering if this heater would be ok just to run in the colder months so I can get in the pool year around or I need a bigger one.
I just purchased the HP50ta and have a 220 line with two 30 amp breakers to the pump which has an amp requirement of sf 7.8 - 7.4/14.8. Will I need another electric line for the heat pump or will the existing line be sufficient?
Hi, Mike. You existing electrical will be sufficient. However, the heat pump needs its own dedicated breaker.
We recently purchased one of these in July. I went out today and the screen says "Loc" and there is nothing in the manual that says what that means. Can you help me?
Christine, LOC means that the lockout function has been enabled. A lock out function is provided to keep the temperature set point from being changed. To engage this function in the pool or spa mode press the up arrow button, down arrow button and pool button at the same time and hold for 2 seconds. The control display will read “LOC” while the lock out function is engaged. To exit the lock out function in pool or spa mode press the up arrow button, down arrow button and pool button at the same time.
could this unit warm a 30 round above ground pool ?
Hi Angelica, For a 30' Round Pool I would suggest the larger Hayward 110,000 BTU Heat Pump
When does the fan on the heat pump come on
Hi. The fan will come on every time the unit is heating or when the unit is in the defrosting cycle.
What size heat pump heater do I need for a 14'w x 31'L x 3-6' deep pool.
Hi, Mary. I would recommend an 110 BTU unit or larger for a pool of your size.
I got extra solar panels installed on my home. Now I debate getting an electric heater vs a solar pool system. My pool is 45 ft by 15 ft - not sure of the gallons. It has 40% 3 ft and 60% 6 to 8 ft. What is the right system for me.
I have a 10,000 gal aboveground pool. I set the heat pump on 82 degrees and the next morning the pool had reached that temperature. I have not seen it come on since but I know it has. My electric bill has not hardly changed in the last two months. Hope this was beneficial.
Depends on your geography, but you should go with the larger unit. I'm in the NorthEast with an 18ft (8500gal.) round in partial sun and the 50k unit keeps my pool heated well when temps are above 80, but takes awhile to heat a few degrees when its less than that.
I live in Pa and have a 24 foot above ground pool. I would like to use the heater from May to September. Would this heater work for my pool? Thank you.
Hi, Traci. To be able to heat your pool from May to September I would recommend an 85,000 BTU unit.
what is the average degree that the heat pump raises the pool temp
Hi, Jackie. The temperature increase would vary with heat pump, it depends on the outside temperature, humidity, pool size, flow rate and current pool temperature. Without that info, I can answer your question.
will this heat pump heat a pool 27x52 above ground ?
Hi Jackie, I would suggest the Hayward 95,000 BTU heat pump for a 27' round pool.
Can I connect this unit to an industrial grade torx 220 volt timer that my pump is connected to so they come on at the same time? I have the timer on a 60 amp ground fault spa panel.
This heat pump has a flow switch so there is no extra timer needed. It works as follows... you set the temperature on the heat pump and then if water is flowing through the heat pump and the water temp. is below the thermostat set point then the heater will kick on. If your pool pump timer does not have your pool pump running then the heat pump will not kick on since water is not running through it.
how does the HP50TA operates do you set the desired temperature and display units lets say 32 degrees Celcius and then run it on a timer that connects and disconnects the power from the heat Pump? are the settings stored when you disconnect the power? are settings stored indefinitely or for a specific period of time?
Hi Joan, you would set the temperature on the thermostat of the heat pump and if water is running through the heat pump and the water temperature is below the set point on the thermostat then the heater will kick on.
I have a 1 hp Hayward power flo matrix pump. Will that be enough flow or too much? The HP50TA Heat pump will be located about 2-3 feet away from the pump. Thank you
Hi, Vincent. The 1 HP Matrix pump will provide adequate water flow to operate the HP50TA unit.
Hi, I see in some configurations that there are Check Valves installed. Are they required? If so, what is the purpose. Thank you
Hi Vincent, If you have an pool chlorinator then we suggest a check valve, as when your pump turns off that highly concentrated chlorine from the chlorinator has a tendancy to back flow and sit on the Heat Pumps heat exchanger. The check valve prevents this from occuring and prolongs the heat exchanger.
using no. 8 wire does it take two hots and a ground or 2 hots and neutral from the panel box.
Hi, Little. This unit requires two hot and a ground. The electrical has to be done by a licensed electrician in order to maintain the manufacturer warranty.
I keep getting the flo error... it's new filter and plenty of water flowing... could the pump possibly just not be powerful enough for the amount of water flow that's needed. It's an intex 12x24 above ground..
Hello, depending on what type of pump you have would really show if you have enough flow on it. How old is your unit? It would also depend on your feet of head on getting enough flow in your heat pump.
Hi, I am getting a 9K Gal fiberglass in-ground pool that includes a small built in spa with spill over. My two options for Heat pumps are this model and the bigger HP21404T. I want to know if for this size pool and my area is it worth spending the extra money to get the bigger pump or will this one do fine?Also can this heat pump be set up to work the spa independently of the pool? Meaning can I have the spa at 100 deg and the pool at 85 with this one pump? I will have an aqua plus T9 salt too
I would not recommend one smaller than the 95,000 BTU model, HP21004T.
current and voltage requirements
Hi, A 20-30 Amp 230 volt breaker is required.
How long will this take to heat my 10k in ground pool 8 degrees?
Good morning Abby, One of are customers wrote.Great product. Works the first time turn it on. Heat the 12x24 pool in 8 hours from 60F to 85F in combination with solar heater. Recommnend for small swimming pool less than 13,000 gallons. The price is lower compare to other brands. Easy set up and installation. Very quiet. I would say it would take 4-6hours
will this heater heat my 17000 gal. in ground pool
Hello, you might want to use a Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 95,000 BTU - HP21004T for 17k pool.
I usually take my filter and pump inside for the winter, would it damage the heat pump to leave it outside during the winter? If not, should I drain the water? Is there a cover for the Heat Pump?
Hi Sam, Yes, you can leave the heat pump outside during the winter, you will have to winterize it which will require draining the water out of the unit. You can also use a Pool Heat Pump Cover.
I see that your model HP50HA must be installed above the level of the pool water. Does this unit have the same requirement? I have a 15 Ft Dia above ground pool (5,280 gallons) in Allentown PA. The pump and filter are at the same level as the bottom of the pool. I need to decide between the two units, please advise
That unit will work with all above grove pools.
Can this be used with Intex hard sided above ground pools?
Yes, that'll work with all above ground pools.
How many electric amps to run 50'000 heat pump
Recommended Breaker Size for this unit is a 30 amp.
Does it have 1 1/2 in. fittings for hookup?
This unit comes with 2" plumbing connections and you would need to purchase a standard 1-1/2" x 2" reducer bushing at your local hardware store for 1-1/2" plumbing.
What size of electrics heat pump would I need for a 28ft above ground pool
Hi Pam, This 50K Heat Pump is sufficient for a 28ft above ground pool. If you want to heat your pool faster you can go with the HP21004T unit
Is there a minimum flow rate GPH/GPM required for using this heat pump? My flow rate is about 37GPH. Thanks!
Hello Jason, A flow rate of 30-75 gpm is the optimal flow rate needed in order for this unit to operate efficiently.
Can I plug this into a 220 line
Hi Lucia. The HP50TA is designed to run on 220V.
is a 20 amp breaker sufficient ?
Yes a 20 amp breaker will be sufficient.
What is the optimal gpm through this heat pump for it to operate efficiently? I know the range is 30 to 75 gpm.
Hi Lou, A flow rate of 30-75 gpm is the optimal flow rate needed in order for this unit to operate efficiently.
HI I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW LONG THE ELECTRICAL CORDS ARE ON THIS UNIT
Darrell- There is not cord that comes with this unit. You would get an electrical whip to connect from your 20 amp breaker to this unit.
Is there a security lock on the control panel so that my kids wont massing with it? If no, do you have a model that has that feature?
Hi Tony, This unit does not have a screen lock feature, the HP50HA does have a screen lock feature.
hi, i have a 11000 gallon above ground pool. i am in new jersey. would this work for me?
Hi Tony, This unit will work to heat your 11,000 gallon pool.
Would this heater work on a 15x30 above ground pool or do we need higher btu's? Thanks for your feedback.
Hi, This unit can be used to heat a 15'x30' above ground pool, however you can choose a unit with a higher BTU which will heat the pool faster.
We have an above ground pool. It is a round 18'X54" deep. We live in central Iowa. I am wondering if this heat pump would be big enough to warm our water up to 85 degrees in early June and again for the month of September?
Any size heat will get the water to a desired temp. It just matters what the ambient temperature is, the humidity and what kind of heat retention you have in place. The higher the BTU's , the faster it gets to where you want. The warmer and more humid , the better these work. Also, a solar blanket, either a rolled out blanket or liquid blanket would fight the evaporation which is where your heat loss would occur.
What does PC mean when flashing
Water temperature probe is short circuited or may be defective., this will need a service tech to be called to fix it.
Other than the orientation of the unit, what is the difference between this one and the HP50HA? I see they both are 50k BTU, but does one have more or different features than the other?
Hi,Other than the orientation on the unit the HP50HA model has a cooling mode to lower pool temperature and has 1-1/2" port for plumbing connections and the HP50TA does not have a cooling mode but has 2" port for plumbing connections. Other than the orientation on the unit
Can this unit be used on a small in-ground pool?
Hello Melissa, Yes this Heat Pump Pool Size:Up to 13,000 gal. and only requires a breaker Circuit Amps20
I have a 21 Ft round above ground pool, I live about 50 Miles north of NYC, would this Hayward 50K Heat Pro suffice?
During the warmer months out of the year I woud say yes but you would be using this unit basically at it's maximum capacity. I woud recommend using model HP21004T that you can view here, giving you more play room.
Would this product be good for just heating an in ground spa? Not really interested in heating the inground pool. Current Jandy went "toes up".
You can use the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump 50k BTU Digital Display Above Ground Pool on an in ground spa. Depending on the outside temperature and the water temperature you will have to turn on the heater a few hours before you want to use the spa versus a gas heater.
I live on long island. Is this heat pump good enough for a 12'x24'?
Daryll - Depends on how long a season you want. If you want to extend into April and Octorber, you will need a larger heat pump like Raypak's 3350ti [68K BTUs] or their 4350ti [85K BTUs]. The Hayward 50K BTU heat pump would only maintain heat through part of May and September.
is recommended to use pvc piping when installing plumbing or can a thick hose be used
Hi Kelly, PVC piping would be recommended over flex hose, the hose gets to soft when applied directly after the heater.
Is it okay to have a timer on your pool filter/pump, and have the heater on with the flo message shown or does that mess with the heater?
No this can cause damanged to the heater. Possible causes: - The filter is in backwash position. - The filter pump is stopped. - The fi lter is dirty. - Shortage of water to pool pump. - Water pressure switch must be adjusted or it is broken
would this heater heat a 24 round above ground pool thanks
Hi Mark, Since you are in a warmer climate like Georgia then this heat pump would be good for a 24' round pool. If you were up in the northeast I would suggest going up to a larger unit like the Hayward 95,000 BTU Heat Pump.
Does your pool filter have to be ON, at the time your heater is working?
Yes, your pump has to be circulation the water through the Heat Pump in order for the Heat Pump to be able to Heat the pool.
Does this need a 30 amp breaker or a 20 amp?
We would recommend a 30 amp breaker for this heat pump.
We just purchased the Hayward HP50TA Heat Pump, along with a 1/2 lb. check valve, as we use an in-line chlorine distributor. In reading the literature that came with the heater, it specifies a 1/3 lb. check valve. Is it going to be a problem if I use the 1/2 lb., or do I need to exchange it for the 1/3 lb.?
Joe, Using the 1/2lb check valve should not be an issue as long as your pump can generate the proper GPM to open that check valve.
i have a 30 ft x 15 ft. above ground pool. what size heat pump would be effective for my pool.? the pool is 56 inches deep.
We would recommend the Hayward HP21004T. This is the 95K BTU heat pump.
Is this heat pump compatible with salt water pool? Are there any service providers in the Philadelphia area for warranty work?
Tom, This unit has a Titanium Heat Exchanger which will make it great to use on a salt water pool. You'll have to contact Hayward Pool Products to find out who they have in your area.
How much current does this heat pump generate?
Hello Doug, The circuit amps for the HP50TA is 20 A.
Do the heat pumps have to be filled with any type of refrigerant before use?
Hello, you will not need to fill the heat pump with any refrigerant before use. You will simply need to plumb the unit in and connect the electric.
Can this heat pump be used on a in-ground pool as well?
Stan, The HP50TA can be used on small in ground pools.
When this heater is installed, is there a required distance it needs to away from the pool?
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.
The photo of the pool pump located at the top of the page is different than the photo in the Description tab below it. Which is the correct photo? Do you have the exact dimensions for this heater (length, width, height)?
The HP50TA is listed as a square heat pump. The dimensions are as follows: Width x Depth: 30¼" x 34"Height: 29".
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.
Can this Hayward heat pump run on 115/120 volt?
Unfortunately no. The HP50TA runs on 220/240V and requires a 30 amp breaker.

Pros: Water is always warm, very quiet
Cons: Have to keep my dogs away from it
We have always had the problem of our pool water being cold, we had tried the solar panels but tired of leaks pipes everywhere and having to take them down every fall. This year we made the decision to get a heat pump and what a difference, we can use our pool every day, just preset the desired temp and you're done. We love it!
(5 out of 5 stars) Great heat pump

Pros: Quite, digital display, efficient.
I purchased this Hayward heat pump to replace a 7 year old 55000 btu heat pump, that had a bad compressor. The 1st time I turned it on, it heated my 12x18 pool in half the time the old one did. It's also very quite. I strongly recommend this product.
(5 out of 5 stars) What type of heater is best for me?
Reviewed By: Joe E. from Amherst, Ohio ()
Pros: Energy Efficient with the heat pump
i was not sure about the type of heater should I purchase and I settled on the heat pump. The unit came super fast and was able to hookup easily with the enclosed parts with minimal additional parts required to finish hookup. After the start up the pool water was at 74 degrees and in a day and a half it had raised it to 83. Since then the unit seams to barely run and maintains the temp for our swimming comfort.
