Product Description

When electricity is the energy choice Raypak is the quality choice -- dependable, trouble-free, performance-proven - with corrosion-free, 100% copper and bronze waterways. Two compact models - 5.5kw and 11kw - built to last by the company renowned for reliability.

SpaPak spa/hot tub electric heaters furnish sustained heat to provide the maximum benefits of hydrotherapy...including stress reduction, relaxation and arthritis/pain relief.

FEATURES:

  • Longer Life
    Because all waterways are corrosion-free copper and bronze - not aluminum. And, SpaPak features large size, heavy duty Incoloy heating elements that lasts far longer than ordinary water heating elements.
  • Troublefree
    Because SpaPak has extra quality and safety built-in - a pressure switch to prevent operation without water flow, a high limit temperature control to prevent overheating and a dependable quality thermostat.
  • Easy to Install
    With a compact design that fits into small spaces. Standard size, full flow 1-1/2" inlet and outlet connections are conveniently located. External current leak protectors are not required.
  • One Year Limited Warranty
    Against defects in materials and workmanship (see written warranty for details). In addition, every SpaPak is thoroughly tested before shipment.
  • Sizing Guide

The following table shows the heating capability for each model in temperature rise per hour with a given amount of water. For example, the 11kw unit will raise the temperature of 450 gallons of water 10 degrees Fahrenheit in one hour. To determine the gallonage of your spa, multiply the surface area x average depth x 7.5.

How can you tell if elements are working to full capacity

A     Answered on 2/20/2017 by Lennox H.

Hi, If the heater is heating the water then the element is working at capacity. The element will or it will not heat. it's not going to partially heat or work.

Can I used this for my salt water spa. The spa is about 750 gallons.

A     Answered on 10/17/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi, David. These units can be used with a saltwater spa, for your size spa I would recommend the  11KW ELS1102 unit.

Hi hb, I would Contact Raypak Heaters directly and they should be able to troubleshoot your issue.

Does this heater require special wiring? Would it work for a 27 ft round pool?

A     Answered on 5/29/2016 by Alex V.

Hello, Unfortunately, this would not work on an above ground pool. This is for use with spas only.

?     Asked on 4/15/2016 by fuzzy

can this heater be made to go to 130 deg. I want to use for a different purpose

A     Answered on 4/20/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Fuzzy, The factor setting will not allow this unit to heat that high.

?     Asked on 5/6/2015 by Theresa

We have an above ground pool, approx 5,300 gallons. Would this heater be an OK way to warm up the pool?

A     Answered on 5/6/2015 by Robert M.

Hello Theresa - The 5.5kW would be undersized. We would recommend Raypak model 001640. This is the 11kW electric heater.

?     Asked on 7/14/2012 by Guest

How high can I set the water temperature to with this heater?

A     Answered on 7/14/2012 by Patrick P.

The Raypak 001640 spa heater has a high limit thermostat is factory set at 104°F.

?     Asked on 9/29/2006 by Guest

For the 5.5KW unit how much water flow is required through the heater(570gph)?

A     Answered on 9/29/2006 by Patrick P.

The flow should be maintained above 15 GPM (900 GPH).  Failure to do so will cause the pressure switch to drop out, and the heater will become inoperative.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Great little heater

from Colchester, CT ()

Pros: Very easy to wire and set up.

I used this heater to replace my 20 year old broken propane heater. This actually heats my 5 person spa in the same time from cold water to 103° for a fraction of the cost. Very easy to wire and set up.
