Universal H-Series Low NOx Heaters
For In-Ground Pools and Spas - Electronic Ignition Dual Thermostat
Now With Cupro Nickel Heat Exchanger!
NEW Hayward Universal H-Series Low NOx heater combines industry-leading hydraulic performance; environmentally responsible low NOx emissions and a standard cupro nickel heat exchanger with a low profile appearance, lighter weight design, independent left or right side electric, water and gas connections plus 2" x 2 1/2" CPVC union connections to provide the ultimate installation flexibility for new or existing equipment pads.
It also includes a forced draft system that constantly moves air through the combustion chamber at a precise flow rate. As a result, all outside weather variables that can affect the heating performance, such as wind conditions, are eliminated - without having to install a high-wind stack.
NOTE: The Hayward Universal H-Series heaters meet the NOx Emission standards set by the California South Coast Quality Air Management Commission for 2001 and the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission Code.
How do you know if a pool heater is a propane heater or a natural gas heater?
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.
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.
Is a vent required for typical outside installation for the Hayward 150k Ng Lo Nox heater?
For the Hayward Lo Nox heater, you would not need to purchase an additional vent if you are using it outside. If you are installing the heater outside, we recommend you purchasing a heater cover. This will protect your heater from debris, rain, snow, heat- or pretty much anything that could get caught in your heater. The Weather-Out Pool Heater Cover can be viewed on our website.

My previous heater was problematic for the last ten years. With that being said I opened the pool this year and tryied stating the heater and the exhaust fan was totally rotten. I decided to turn threats INYO like always and purchase a new one The purchase and the delivery was seemless as always
(4 out of 5 stars) Efficient, easy to use Pool Heater

The Hayward 250 BU Lo-Nox natural gas heater is efficient and works quite well. More efficient than our old Hayward microvolt 250 BTU heater. The only drawback so far is the pressure limiter switch on the heater requires a 1 HP pump to work properly.
(5 out of 5 stars) Hayward Heaters produce!

I picked this heater due to the wind conditions here on Padre Island. It out performs the others in this environment, plus it pairs well with my Hayward pump. I did have to change the side of the inlet/outlet and it was simple and straight forward. The wiring was simple as well. No special consideration as I wired it 220/240 volt, but it is simple enough to wire 115 volt as well. This heater works as well or better than my last one which was a Raypak. I also like that it has the cupronickel heat exchanger standard! I would definitely recommend this heater. Hayward makes an excellent product.
(5 out of 5 stars) Fast, Silent, and easy to use pool heater

Pros: Compact, Fast, Sient, and easy to use
Cons: Heavy - the electric hookup needs a complete cover
We have gone through 3 pool heaters in 5 years. For the equivalent price, this Hayward (The only brand I will every buy in pool heaters) heats the water faster - 20 degrees in less than 48 hours, easy to start, and the flow monitor is great, and it doesn't sound like its going to rocket to the stars.
