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.
I am replacing an old Raypak 206k BTU heater and I need to know if this will fit on my concrete pad. Do you have the dimensions of the heater cabinet?
Please tell me what differences this model has in comparison to the Raypak 180 K BTU CuPru Nickel heater.
Hello LC - This heater has a copper heat exchanger and the 180K BTU has a cupro-nickel heat exchanger. The cupro-nickel is a more durable material. That is the only significant difference between the two models.

INYOPOOL had a competitive price, it included shipping cost to Plano, TX, ordered on Friday afternoon and it delivered to my driveway Wednesday morning. Very quick delivery and super company to work with. the heater was in perfect condition. I put it in place of the old one. Installed water lines (same height position as the old 2100), installed the electrical wires (same position as the 2100). Let a pool company reconnect the gas lines and confirm the electrical connections so that the full warranty would be in effect.

I removed old heater. I set the new one in its place. I piped up the gas line first because that is the hardest to do. I piped up the line from the filter to the heater then the return line back to the pool. Everything went well.
(5 out of 5 stars) Raypak pool heater
Reviewed By: Mark B. from Indianapolis, IN ()
I've had my pool for 16 years. My first heater was a Hayward and lasted only 4 years. I was glad to see that my pool company replaced it with a different brand. It was a Raypak. The performance was better than the previous one, and after six years, the heating element was replaced, which was less than 1/2 of the original cost of the unit. The heater lasted another six years, then basically disintegrated. This spring, I began shopping on the internet and found that INYOpools was amongst the lowest pricing that I could find for a replacement, and the shipping costs from Florida saved me quite a bit of money being that I live in the midwest. I installed the heater myself with no problems. the only issue was that my previous heater had a cast iron exchanger with stainless tubes and this new one is poly carbonate, so you can use standard 2" pvc to connect to it. I love the digital controls over the analog ones, (that didn't give you a "marked" temperature control at the source). I have absolutely no regrets that I purchased this heater from INYO. I would certainly do it again 12 years from now. By the way, I ordered the unit on a Saturday and had it at my door the following Wednesday, with no expedited delivery service.
(5 out of 5 stars) Fast Heating Swimming Pool Heater
Reviewed By: Marshall from Massachusetts ()
Pros: Heats more quickly than older model.
Cons: Installation more difficult than expected.
When finally installed it works very well and heats a 25,000 gallon pool quickly. I bought this unit to replace the equivalent model from years ago, and found the gas line and water lines were different so the installation was not so easy. Had to find a way to go from 1.5 inch copper to 2.0 inch PVC -- not so easy with a pressure fitting.
(5 out of 5 stars) never go without a heater again...
Reviewed By: Michael C. from Shakopee, MN ()
Pros: quiet, automatic, AWESOME
It works like a charm. My pool is 86°. I have had a permanent smile on my face since I hooked it up. The kids and I were in the pool until 10:45 pm last night - a feat that would not have happened without the heater. It's quiet, automatic, and AWESOME! I live in Minnesota. Now, my pool is opened sooner and we'll see how late in the year we can go...I'm thinking Halloween! I'll never not have a heater.
(5 out of 5 stars) Powerful spa heater
Reviewed By: Mitchell L. from Marietta, GA ()
Pros: Powerful and works as described
Cons: PC board is fragile
Well made and easy to install. Heats to spa temp quickly. On board controls are nice feature but should come with remote already installed since nobody's spa is right next to a heater. Also I blew out the pc control board when connecting the wrong ac leads. Should have a fail-safe feature preventing damage from such a mistake
