Hello Mitch, The Raypak Heater 406,000 BTU NG ELE is the closest match to your current heater with out losing any BTU. The fittings should be a direct match.


Asked on 03/16/2016 by Debbie

Is this the professional series? and how does it compare to the R408A?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/17/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Debbie, We do not carry the Professional Series. They're definitely better designed and built units but will heat the pool the same as the Residential units.

Asked on 12/09/2014 by Ismail

I've currently Zodiac 325 Btu Propane Swimming Pool heater Indoor. Will this replace the current I've have.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 12/09/2014 by Product Specialist Brian M.

This would replace it and then some. You would get an extra 81000 BTUs. I would suggest checking with your propane gas company to make sure the line you have would be enough to supply the  greater requirements of the larger BTU heater.


Asked on 10/10/2012 by Guest

What is the difference between an Electronic and Millivolt ignition?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/10/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.


Asked on 05/26/2012 by Guest

I would like to replace my current heater with this unit. It is supplied with propane but I will have Nat Gas next year. What is the parts cost to convert? Also, this will replace a Ray Pak P-R405A. Is the wiring basically the same?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/26/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Conversion kit for the 406 unit is only available for the milivolt unit and not the electronic ignition unit, you may view the conversion kit here http://www.inyopools.com/pool_parts_raypak_atmospheric_heaters.aspx (last part on the page - $125.99) This link has an explanation on the differences of electronic ignition and milivolt ignition http://www.inyopools.com/poolanswers_heaters.aspx#electonic_millivolt_ignition and if you would like to purchase the entire heater you may do so here http://www.inyopools.com/heaters_rpseries.aspx Yes this would replace the P-R405A and if you went with the electronic ignition version the wiring would be relatively the same, however if you went with the milivolt ignition there would be not wiring involved.


Asked on 01/16/2012 by Guest

Will a gas heater operate at the low speed of a dual speed motor?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/16/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Pros: Price , releability, and long term maintenance

Cons: None

Replaced my 12 year propane Mini-Max. Easy install, compact, easy to read set point, and maintenance is very minimal. Also, the tech that installed this unit suggested to cover the heating unit from the elements when not in use to prolong life of heater from sun , etc. I had an extra gas grill cover that fit perfect.
