When electricity is the energy choice Raypak is the quality choice -- dependable, trouble-free, performance-proven - with corrosion-free, 100% copper and bronze waterways. Two compact models - 5.5kw and 11kw - built to last by the company renowned for reliability.
SpaPak spa/hot tub electric heaters furnish sustained heat to provide the maximum benefits of hydrotherapy...including stress reduction, relaxation and arthritis/pain relief.
The following table shows the heating capability for each model in temperature rise per hour with a given amount of water. For example, the 11kw unit will raise the temperature of 450 gallons of water 10 degrees Fahrenheit in one hour. To determine the gallonage of your spa, multiply the surface area x average depth x 7.5.
APPLICABLE WARRANTY PERIODS If the Heater is installed in a single family residential dwelling, the Applicable Warranty Period for the Heater and its parts is one (1) year If the Heater is installed anywhere other than a single family residential dwelling, the
Applicable Warranty Period for the Heater and its parts is ninety (90) days. LABOR AND SHIPPING COSTS This Limited Warranty does not cover any travel time or other labor costs for repairs or replacements arising from defects in the Heater or its parts. This Limited Warranty does not cover any shipping costs to and from Raypak’s designated service provider or from the installation site.
For the 5.5KW unit how much water flow is required through the heater(570gph)?
The flow should be maintained above 15 GPM (900 GPH). Failure to do so will cause the pressure switch to drop out, and the heater will become inoperative.
We have an above ground pool, approx 5,300 gallons. Would this heater be an OK way to warm up the pool?
(5 out of 5 stars) Great little heater

Pros: Very easy to wire and set up.
I used this heater to replace my 20 year old broken propane heater. This actually heats my 5 person spa in the same time from cold water to 103° for a fraction of the cost. Very easy to wire and set up.
