What size heater do you recommend for an in ground containing 24,000 gal. of water? I am looking at the 266AEP model, would that be sufficient?
Hi. Heaters are sized using the pool's surface area, not the volume. If you can get me the surface area of your pool I can confirm what size heater will be best.
I a. Looking to buy a propane pool heater for a small 18 ft round 4 ft deep above ground pool. What would you recommend ?
Hi, Polly. You can use a 100K BTU or higher heater depending on how fast you want the pool heater and the desired temperature.
will this heater work for a 14000gal inground pool @ 4400 Feet?
Hi. This heat can heat a 14000 gallon pool, however, will not operate at 4400 feet. You will need Part # 009233 which is rated at 3000-5000 feet.
this heater is going to be intalled at a height of 900 meters above sea level I want to know if it is the one indicated for that height

Hi, Jerry. If your county or zip code does not require Low NOx units, then you can use this unit.
I have a 21' round I'm converting to salt system, would this be the correct size heater. Our Hayward heater took a long time to heat the pool. We utilize propane. Thank you,
Hi, Tammy. This 266K BTU heater will heat a 21' pool efficiently. I would recommend model # 014951 for use with a saltwater pool.
Would this be the model for a 20X40 pool? Thank you.
Hi. This heater is too small to efficiently heat a 20'x40' pool, a 350K BTU or larger heater will suffice.

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.
(5 out of 5 stars) Best option for price and service.

Pros: Great service!
I ordered this Raypak pool heater from INYO and because of its size, it had to be shipped via truck freight. It arrived in less than a week undamaged and the shipping was free! They even put little special stickers on the crate that show if your package has been tipped or abused by the trucking company during transit. Awesome service
