Product Description

Raypak's Heat Pumps feature exclusive DuraSteel powder-coated cabinets, 3 blade swept wing fangs, and a best in class warranty service.

Classic Model Standard Features:

Cabinet Durability

  • Exclusive DuraSteel™ Powder-Coated Cabinet
    Same rugged steel construction used by all the major air conditioner manufacturers. Fully louvered steel jacket protects the evaporation coil from storm debris, hail, and harsh weather. Not to mention the winning goal in a back yard soccer match. A plastic cabinet is no match for the all steel Raypak cabinet.

Quiet Operation

  • 3 Blade Swept Wing Fan
    Precision engineered and tuned for our heat pump. This means more air over the coil which translates to greater efficiency all while being whisper quiet!
  • Extremely Tough Composite Base
    Rustproof and ultrasound deading base material keeps your heat pump up and running for years while holding sound levels to an absolute minimum.


  • 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 overtime, not out!

Titanium Heat Exchanger

  • Spiral Titanium Tube
    The 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 “scoop-and-lift” action.
  • Internal Automatic Water Bypass
  • Plumbing Connections Off-set 2” PVC union connections

Digital Controls - Basic Functions

  • 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. The digital display will flash “Remote” to let you know that it is under control of a third party automation system. Simply press the up and down arrows for 5 seconds to release the control from the remote mode and regain local control.
  • On Board Diagnostics
    Tells you, the homeowner if there is a problem. Provides the service technician with detailed diagnostic information in real english.

Digital Control - Built-in Mini Automation

  • Solar Priority Control
    Allows solar to be the primary heat source and your heat pump as a backup booster.
  • Heat Pump Priority Gas Heater Back Up Control
    Heat pump is the primary source for heat with gas as a booster when needed.
  • Multi Unit Control
    Stages heaters ability to come on by delaying the start.
  • 3-Way Valve Control
    Control and program 3-way valves to work with pool and spa mode on digital control. No external parts to buy.
  • Pump Control and Time Clock

2 years Labor and 7 years Parts
10 years on the heat exchanger tube, see warranty for details.

I have a 21 round above ground pool - is this heat pump recommended?

A  Answered on 5/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello CT - This heat pump would be sufficient for a 21' above ground pool.

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.

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.

Installation of pool heat pump

Written on 6/26/2020 by Guest

Installation of this heat pump was straight forward. I do not recommend installing yourself unless you’re comfortable working with PVC. Definitely leave the electrical work to an electrician.

Once I had the unit positioned on the concrete pad, plumbing the PVC was simple. My electrician showed up shortly after and wired up the unit. Instruction manual is straightforward and easy to comprehend.

I highly recommend this heat pump! It works well and is simple to use.

Were these instructions helpful?
