Product Description

Who ever thought doing something good for the environment would also save you money? It's true! A Raypak heat pump is built with the latest eco-friendly R410A refrigerant that operates more efficiently than R-22. But the most amazing aspect of a heat pump pool heater is its operating efficiency compared to gas heaters. A heat pump operates at 5 to 6 times the efficiency of a standard gas, oil or electric pool heater. If you live in an area where your natural or propane gas costs have out-paced your electricity costs, the savings can be big. The chart illustrates just how much money can save using average energy cost data.


  • Exclusive DuraSteel™ Powder-Coated Cabinet
    Polyester powder-coated, non-corrosive cabinet is more durable than plastic heat pump cabinets. Same rugged steel construction used by all the major air conditioner manufacturers

Evaporator Coil

  • Large Air Coils
    Raised lanced-fin design maximizes heating at lower temperatures. Raypak engineered coils are highly optimized to meet our specific design requirements. From the proper fins per inch to advanced distribution circuiting. We are the only heat pump pool heater company to actually manufacture our own coils.
  • Venturi Fan Cowling
    High-capacity 3000-cfm fan provides unrestricted air flow for better heating. Precision engineered and manufactured
    cabinet design eliminates unwanted air gaps. This means more air over the coil which translates to greater efficiency


  • Scroll Compressor
    Scroll compressors are quiet and efficient compared to piston type compressors. They provide higher efficiency, lower sound levels, superior durability and unsurpassed reliability. The unique design of a scroll compressor actually wears in over time, not out!
  • Sound Isolation Pads
    Prevents sound transfer to equipment pad and elevates the base pan to improve water drainage. Its the little details like this that make Rheem products stand out from the

Heat Exchanger

  • Spiral Titanium Tube
    Our spiral titanium tube heat exchanger provides a corrosion-free waterway that can withstand the abuses of harsh pool chemistry. The spiral tube helps reduce deposit build-up and increases efficiency by performing a “scoopand- lift" action.
  • Internal Bypass Valving
    Automatically compensates for normal day-to-day changes in your pool's hydraulics, maximizing heat transfer efficiency.
  • Plumbing Connections
    Off-set 2" PVC union connections are included for ease of installation

Controls - Analog

  • Dual Thermostats
    Allows separate pool and spa temperature settings.
  • Exclusive Direct-Set Thermostat
    Our direct-set thermostat is easy to use; the temperature settings are right on the dial. This eliminates the guess work involved compared with some dials that use a gradient or blue-to-red “swoosh".
  • Remote/Local Switch
    Compatible with the latest automated pool control systems. Exclusive remote/local switch ends the conflict between outside control systems and the heat pump control system. Great for troubleshooting.
  • Diagnostic Lights
    Six LED diagnostic lights keep you informed about the heat pump pool heater operation. Power on, water flow, heat demand, compressor delay, defrost active, low refrigerant pressure.

Controls - Digital

  • Pool/Spa Control
    Your digital heat pump pool heater can be set to have a different target temperature for your pool and spa. This allows you to dial in just the right spa temperature and never have to adjust it again. The pool can be set to a lower, more energy saving temperature.
  • Remote Compatible
    The digital heat pump pool heater can be easily controlled by most two-wire and three-wire remote systems.
  • On Board Diagnostics
    Tells the homeowner if there is a problem. Provides the service technician with detailed diagnostic information.

how do I know witch is best for my pool 14 by 28 3 feet to 6 feet

A     Answered on 12/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. You will need to use your geographical location, pool size, desired temperature and run time. You can use the Raypak Heat Pump Heater Sizing guide to determine what size unit will be best for your pool depending on where you live.

I have a 15,000 gal pool in Indiana would the 95k raypak be big enough to keep pool 85 degrees middle may thru late aug.

A     Answered on 5/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. This unit will be able to achieve the desired pool temperature running the unit for a longer time. I would recommend an 110K or larger BTU unit.

Hi, we would like to heat our 12 x 24 foot, 52 inch deep above ground pool. It is installed semi inground. Tried solar panels, didnt work. Really want to keep pool warmer and extend swim time. We live on Long Island, NY. Pool gets sun and shade during course of day. We dont have natural gas and dont want to deal with propane. Would this heater get our pool to 82 overnight and maintain that temp throughout summer? Thanks for your help

A     Answered on 3/28/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, that heat pump would be a great way to get your water temperature to 82 degree and is a great way to maintain that temperature. As long as your pool pump is on it will regulate the water temperature and turn on and off when needed. Very energy efficient.

What size electric heat pump would you recommend for a round above ground 24 ft. round by 54 in deep pool?

A     Answered on 3/7/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Michael. For a pool of your size a 60K BTU or greater heat pump would be recommended.

I have a 15 x 29 Fiberglass pool. I live in lower Alabama and thought this Raypak would do the job so we could swim most of the year.

A     Answered on 1/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

This would do the job, But with Heat pumps they pull heat from the air so when temps drop below freezing this heater will not work and freezing temps are dangerous for the compressors. So yes this will extend swims, but when you get freezing weather this will not work.

What is the power in Amps required for this equipment?

A     Answered on 8/22/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

You need a 60 amp breaker for that heat pump.

I may be way off base here: I want to heat a pool that has never been heated before. Is there something I should consider prior to looking for pumps? I really want to this within a few weeks time.

A     Answered on 3/11/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

When deciding what heat pump size to choose for your pool, you will need to determine the surface area of the pool. I also, recommend contacting a Certified Electrician and Certified Pool Technician for any fees involved to have the equipment installed. You will need to check the equipment area to ensure there is enough space for the heat pump and an equipment pad. It is best recommended to purchase a solar blanket or liquid solar blanket, to help prevent heat loss occurred during evaporation. Feel free to follow up with us, using our Support Ticket Email System to provide us more information about your swimming pool dimensions.

Do you think this 95K btu is large enough to keep our uncovered 14x28 screened in pool with an average depth 4.5 ft at 88 degrees in Tampa, FL from May through October?

A     Answered on 6/6/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R.

Dick - Raypak's Heat Pump Calculator shows that their 95K BTU heater would be able to maintain  your pool at 88 degrees in Tampa from May to October with 1.5-2.5 MPH winds. You should be able to change some of the parameters yourself on this calculator.
