I have a 21 Ft round above ground pool, I live about 50 Miles north of NYC, would this Hayward 50K Heat Pro suffice?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/08/2015 by Product Specialist Hector F.

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.

Question

Asked on 06/21/2015 by

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".

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/22/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

Question

Asked on 06/16/2015 by daryll

I live on long island. Is this heat pump good enough for a 12'x24'?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/16/2015 by Product Specialist Dennis R.

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.

Question

Asked on 06/15/2015 by kelly

is recommended to use pvc piping when installing plumbing or can a thick hose be used

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/15/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Kelly, PVC piping would be recommended over flex hose, the hose gets to soft when applied directly after the heater.

Question

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?

Question

Asked on 06/04/2015 by mark from georgia

would this heater heat a 24 round above ground pool thanks

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/04/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Question

Asked on 05/29/2015 by

Question

Asked on 04/30/2015 by Joe Kane

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.?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/30/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

Question

Asked on 09/26/2014 by Guest

When this heater is installed, is there a required distance it needs to away from the pool?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 09/26/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Question

Asked on 09/23/2014 by Guest

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)?

Answered on 09/23/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The HP50TA is listed as a square heat pump. The dimensions are as follows: Width x Depth: 30¼" x 34"Height: 29".

Question

Asked on 10/08/2013 by Guest

Is the refrigerant in Hayward heat pumps environmentally safe?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/08/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes. Hayward uses R-410A refrigerant in all their heat pumps.

Question

Asked on 10/08/2013 by Guest

Can a heat pump be installed under a deck?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/08/2013 by 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.

Question

Asked on 10/08/2013 by Guest

Can a heat pump be installed indoors?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/08/2013 by 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.

Question

Asked on 10/08/2013 by Guest

If I have a large pool pump will I need to have a flow meter for the heat pump?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/08/2013 by 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.

Question

Asked on 01/04/2013 by Guest

Can this Hayward heat pump run on 115/120 volt?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/04/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Unfortunately no. The HP50TA runs on 220/240V and requires a 30 amp breaker.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Hayward heat pump

Reviewed By: from Cincinnati, Oh ()

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!

Pros: Quite, digital display, efficient.

Cons: None

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: from Amherst, Ohio ()

Pros: Energy Efficient with the heat pump

Cons: None

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.
