The Raypak Digital gas heater comes with a microprocessor based thermostat control. This control allows you to set your pool or spa temperature precisely at your favorite setting just by pressing an up or down temperature control button. The Digital display gives you a constant read out of your pool water temperature. Just set it, and forget it! Truly simple.
Troubleshooting a gas heater has never been easier. The Raypak Digital has on-board diagnostic controls that let the user and the service professional know what is going on with the heater at all times. In the event that you would ever have a problem with the heater, the digital display will show where the problem is in the control circuit. It's like having a service technician built into every heater!
The Raypak Digital is compatible with most major pool control and remote systems on the market today. Any two-wire or three-wire remote can connect to the Raypak Digital and be integrated into the pool control system of your choice.
The Raypak Digital has the best outdoor design in the market today. With over 50 years in designing and building gas heaters, Raypak has put all that experience into its newest heater design. No need for fans to combat drafting problems, the Raypak Digital was designed for outdoor installations with its exclusive low profile design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters: falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc. In fact it is so efficiently designed it ensures uninterrupted heating performance regardless of all but the most extreme weather conditions. Built Raypak tough. Built to last.
One look will tell you that the Raypak Digital is different! The look is contemporary. The design is advanced. And inside and out it's engineered to last. The attractive forest green and charcoal gray panels complement the latest pool and spa equipment designs. Raypak's original "pagoda top" design will keep the heater operating even in extreme wind conditions and downdrafts.
The Raypak Digital has a polyester coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solventborne and waterborne coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal that gets powder coated goes through a 7-stage wash system making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough and beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service.
The Raypak Digital incorporates the latest in header design technology. Raypak's state-of-the-art engineering department utilized the latest in 3-D computer aided design to engineer the part for optimal performance. Polymer resin headers prevent rust stains from harming your pools surface giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure
This Raypak Digital heater has cupro-nickel fin tube heat exchangers for added protection against aggressive water chemistry. Although rare, there are certain applications, like health club spa's, where copper is just not the best choice. Cupro-nickel offers superior tolerance to bad and fluctuating water chemistry, thanks to a harder surface and thicker walled fin tube.

I cook the master temp 400 can I use this heater for 25k salt pool in Los Angeles CA?
Hi, Raul. You can use a Raypak 406,000 BTU's to heat a 25K pool. You will need a Low Nox unit P-R407A-EN-C. The Low Nox units are not equipped with a Cupro-Nickel Heat Exchanger.
Will the Compool TimeMaster (w/LX-10 power center) work the Raypak Heater 406,000 BTU's NG ELE W/ Cupro-Nickel Heat Exchanger – 014941?
Hi, Andy. Yes, this Raypak Heater can be wired to the Compool TimeMaster Controller.
i currebtly have a 10 year old raypak p-m406a-en-c that is rusting out, will this heater be better and will be a drop in replacement?
Hi, Jason. The Raypak P-R model heaters are a direct replacement to the Rheem P-M model heaters. This PR406AENX has a cupro-nickel heat exchanger which is better than the copper heat exchanger and will be a drop-in replacement for a residential standard application.
Is the control panel lockable or how would you suggest it be isolated - I rent out my property in Florida and I'm fairly sure some guests are putting my Hayward H250 into manual and putting on the pool heat without paying for it A key switch or something that electrocutes thieving hounds would be good ;-)
Good morning Chris, There is not really a sure way or product that would work for you . Even if you went remote it can still be operated manually. only thing I can say is to put a locking door over display with a note saying for owners use only or remove the heater. no heater np problem.
I have a R406A EP C ASME Pool Heater that I would like to replace. What newer unit would be the best replacement model?
The direct replacement for the one you have is part number 009287 which is a commercial propane heater. The cupro-nickel model that you would need to replace your current heater is part number 010221 and would have to be special ordered. If you like I can get the lead time and price information on that and email you a quote.
How high up from the ground is are the inlet and outlet pipes to the heater (exchanger)?
The plumbing on that heater is 26-5/8" from the ground.
I would be using this @ elevation 5628 feet in Highlands Ranch, CO. Is this heater good @ this elevation? I also have a power vent on the heater I will be replacing Model P-R405A-EN, can I use it on this model or how is it vented? It is located in an enclosed room,, not outside.
Hi Les, The Raypak Heater 406K (009223) is the high altitude version which is good for 2000-6000 ft. It does not have the curpro nickel heat exchanger.
does this heater have a blower on it?
This heater is fan driven, operating by drawing in warm air to heat the pool water. I do not know of any blower parts driving the operation of this heater.
We are trying to compare this Raypak to another model. Can you tell me how this compares or is different from the Raypak RP2100 406k BTU Digital Pool Heater - Natural Gas (item sku: 31-RPD406N). I didn't see that you sell the RP2100, but if there is no difference then this one should be fine for us.
Hi Chris, It looks like this is the exact same model as the Raypak 31-RPD406N however this unit has the upgraded heavy duty Cupro Nickel heat exchanger. If you want the standard heat exchange which comes on the 31-RPD406N then you will require the 009219 Raypak Heater Natural Gas 406,000 BTU's
Making sure before I order. I have natural gas (City Gas in Omaha NE.) coming into the house. We use a salt water system. Our present raypac is about 12 years old and has started to rust out and is leaking. I believe it is 399000 btu. Which system do you suggest.
Hi Edwin, This unit will be a suitable replacement for your current unit and for an saltwater pool.
Can the configuration of the header & or the gas inlet be swapped from one side to the other? If this can be achieved, how simple of a task is this? Thanx, JJC
The headers/heat exchanger can be swapped from one side to the other. The gas connection cannot be swapped. The directions for swapping the heat exchanger/headers are on page 25 of the owner's manual.
What is the cabinet size on this heater? I need the foot print size. This is for indoor install.
The width is 29", the depth is 28", and the height is 38" (64-1/2" with drafthood).
Is this model a LONOX heater? I live in Houston, Texas. The humidity is very high and need a heater appropriate for this climate.
Hello Lan - Model 014941 is not a LoNox heater. The LoNox model would be 010230. That model also has the cupro-nickel heat exchanger.
Our Jandy burnt up because it overheats if the automatic timer shuts off the pool pump and does not have water flow through the heater. What heater would be best choice for Florida with an automatic timer on pool?
I would suggest the Raypak series of heaters as they have an automatic water pressure switch. The water pressure switch detects when there is no flow going through the pool heater and turns the heater off. This switch ensures that the heater will not get damaged if the pump shuts off when the heater is in operation.
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) Quality appears to be there with this heater

After extensive gas pool heater research, I am glad I went with this Raypak. Every Hayward gas heater appeared to break down just after the one year warranty was up. I talked to people who have had their Raypak heater going for 10 years with proper maintenance. Also Inyo has the best price by far. I was also very pleased with their customer service.

Pros: Ability to Extend the swimming season
Cons: I'm sure the gas bill but big deal someone is always going to find a way to get it.
Living in Central PA with having a pool is only a very short season...Unless you have a Raypac 406,000 BTU NG Heater to extend the season. The ordering process was easy and the delivery was fast had it to me in 4 short days and that was only because FedEx didn't have a truck with a lift gate for two days but 4 days is very short time. Heater looks great and was installed by our plumber that ran the gas line and plumbing to go between the pump and heater, I could have done the job but why bother when you have a pro onsite anyway. He made light work of the job and by 5:30pm we had the heater on with the pool water at 72 degrees in 3 hours we were swimming in 90 degree water here in Central PA the second week of May. So pleased with this purchase and wished we would have done it sooner.
(5 out of 5 stars) Nice Heater
