Product Description

RayPak Above Ground Pool/Spa Heater - 106A

The Raypak 106A is the perfect choice for above-ground pools and spas. Raypak is the only manufacturer of this size heater to use all the engineering and components utilized in our bigger gas heaters. The unit is fully serviceable and built for years of operation. This may be our smallest pool and spa heater, but its built to the same exacting standards as the rest of our products. Extend your swim season, open your pool earlier and close it later. Your pool is always ready when you have a Raypak on duty.

Basic Data

Model Number Full BTU Input Indoor Stack dia.
P-R106A 105,000 6”


PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating

The Raypak gas heater has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solvent-borne and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service

Wind-Resistant Design

No need for fans to combat drafting problems under normal conditions. This heater is designed to draft naturally in 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. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance regardless of falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc.

Polymer Headers

Prevent rust stains from harming your pool or spa’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure.

All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger

The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single piece of extruded copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer to be attained and maintained. Raypak also uses thick stainless steel tube sheets for robust construction and rust free operation.


The 106 is available standard with an easy to use analog dial. The electronic ignition system requires external power (120VAC or 240VAC) and generates a pilot only when there is a call for heat. Units come with a 3 foot, 3 prong power cord.

2” Water Connections

Supplied with every Raypak 106 heater is a set of 2" flange connections to make your installation secure and effortless.

Automatic Bypass

The Raypak 106 comes standard with a built in water bypass so it can handle different GPM’s without having to adjust your flow rates manually. The bypass also helps keep a constant engineered flow through the tubes to help reduce condensation caused by cold water.

Burner Tray

Every burner tray is built to last, from the stainless steel burner deck to the aluminized metals used in the heat sensitive areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of the tray for servicing.

Fire Tile

A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your heater running efficiently while keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age material the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowing it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.


Energy-smart Raypak heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings. They meet or exceed all federal and state standards.

Available for natural gas or propane.

Please note the Raypak model 106 is not designed to meet the emissions regulations in areas requiring Low NOx levels.

My hot tub has 1 1/2'' flow lines. Is it ok to use 2'' to 1 1/2'' reducer at the heater.

A  Answered on 6/12/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Mitchell, Yes it would be fine to go from 1-1/2" plumbing up to 2" at the heater.

I am in San Luis Obispo county, California. Is the RayPak 106A compatible with all of the environmental requirements for this region? I had one installer tell me that it was not.

A  Answered on 11/2/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Mick- Depending on what your local code requires this may not be suitable for your application. Parts of California have a requirement to have emissions standards which will require you to get a LoNox model heater. You would need to verify what you local code is, if you were to install a heater that does not meet the code for your area no one will install, service, or warranty the heater.

Can i usean extension cord as the unit only comes with a 3ft cord.Is there a unit that i can get without having to use an external power source, with the same specs.The unit im replacing is the spark system, which has been satisfactory so far.

A  Answered on 5/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, An extension cord is not recommended. You can replace the cord with a longer one, but you will need to make sure that the gauge of the cord is suitable for the length.
