I am getting a 18' x 52" round pool installed in a couple weeks. I live in Minnesota so I feel a heater is necessary to extend our swim season. They are very expensive from the pool store I purchased the pool from and it does not include any installation. Should I get a propane or run a gas line and do you have a suggestion for the best size heater for the pool. Is propane easy to fill? Thank you for any help.
Julie, A 100k btu heater will be fine for an 18' round solid wall abg pool. The choice between natural gas and propane will depend on what will be easier to install. Keep in mind that you will have to have a propane tank installed on your property for the propane heater.
What do I need to install? The hoses I have are too small.
Sandra, You can plumb the heater with 1.5" pvc if you would like. Please note that this is a propane heater.
What is the size of the opening for the inlet and outlet connections from the heater to the pool? And are they adaptable?
Hi, Jet. This unit has 1-1/2" ports and is adaptable.
Is a 120v plug 110 or 240 plug in? and Do you need to run the heater continuously to maintain an even temp? Can you put it on a timer?
Hi, Jet. This unit is 120 volts only, the heater will run only when it calls for heat and when the pump is running. You can put on a timer but it's not necessary.
Does this heater have to be covered?
Jet, The heater does not have to be covered.

Looking into buying this heater. we have a 18ft above ground x 54". our pool is in a shady area and rarely sees sun. will this heater work to warm up the pool? and how long will it take to warm up? and how long does a 100lb or 23 gallon propane tank last for this size pool?
Hello, The H100IDP1 would be good to heat your above ground pool, I would recommend a solar blanket to lock in more heat so you don't have to run your heater that long. How long would it take to heat up your pool? That is depending on what temperature you would like it, anywhere from 12-24 hours if you are running that whole time GPM (gallons per minute) on this heater is 20-70 so for an 8hour turnover rate should be good in about 12 hours. We cannot determine how long that would last.
21,000 gal pool what size propane heater would I need? do you still keep it plugged in once the propane is lit.aproximately how long to heat the water..
For that size of pool I would not recommend a heater smaller than the 300,000 BTU model, H300FDP, but for a pool I usually recommend a heat pump because it is more cost efficient. The heat pump I would recommend for your pool size would be part number HP21404T.
