I currently have an older model of this unit. I have a vertical vent pipe that vents through the roof. Can I operate this newer unit without the vent pipe?
Hi Alvin, This unit will also require a vent kit for indoor installation.
I want to change my CPS 1320 heater to a current model what do you suggest, roughly a 30000 gal pool
Hi, For your size pool I would recommend the H300FDP. If you would like to heat the pool faster you can go with a larger size unit also.
I have a in-door pool with 22000 gallons, I want to buy your: Hayward, H250FDP, will be OK?
Hi Gabriel, This would be the correct sized heater for a 22,000 gallon pool.
Im interested in a pool heater for an outside pool with following dimensions: 30 feet long x 10 feet wide 5.5 feet deep. I have LP gas, and would like to be able to use it in the fall temperatures may be -5 Deg Celsius. Will a 250 be suitable for this pool? I run a single speed 3/4 H.P. pump/filter Thanks!
Hi Emilio, Yes this heater would suit your needs. Based on the information you supplied on your pool you would expect to see a 1-2 degree (Fahrenheit) temperature rise per hour. In the colder months we would definitely suggest a Swimming Pool Solar Cover as this will significantly reduce your operational costs of the heater.
I want to install the Hayward Lownox heater on my pool but I live in the mountains at 3,000 foot elevation; do I need to buy a special high elevation heater?
Hello George, The Hayward Universal Low Nox are self adjusting up to 10,000 feet of elevation. Any installation above 2,000 feet will require a special restriction plate to be installed. Luckily, that plate comes standard with every heater so no need to purchase it separately.
Where can my heater be installed?
There are specific venting requirements and clearance distances that must be met to ensure proper operation. Consult the owner’s manual for exact specifications for your model of heater.NOTE: Gas fired heaters should be diagnosed and repaired by trained personnel.
Is a vent required for typical outside installation for the Hayward 150k Ng Lo Nox heater?
For the Hayward Lo Nox heater, you would not need to purchase an additional vent if you are using it outside. If you are installing the heater outside, we recommend you purchasing a heater cover. This will protect your heater from debris, rain, snow, heat- or pretty much anything that could get caught in your heater. The Weather-Out Pool Heater Cover can be viewed on our website.
What is the elevation rating for the Hayward H-Series Low Nox Heaters
Per Hayward, the Hayward H-Series Low Nox Heaters have an elevation rating up to 7,700'
What is the difference between an Electronic and Millivolt ignition?
The basic answer is that Millivolt is the old style of ignition, using a standing pilot light. While the electronic ignition uses a spark start system like a gas grill. Electronic ignitions are more efficient in gas usage and also are better suited for high wind areas where a pilot light might get extinguished.
Will a gas heater operate at the low speed of a dual speed motor?
Probably not - Most gas heater will shut off at low GPM levels (20-40) to keep the heater cores from overheating - 20 for 200 BTUs, 40 for 400 BTUs. Depending on your pool system you might get these GPM levels at the low speed but generally these heaters must be run at the motor's high speed.
