I have an above the ground 15 feet round pool, what kind of electric heater do I need?

A  Answered on 4/26/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

The Raypak Crosswind 65-I is designed for above-ground pools and would be appropriate for the size of your pool. Anything 60k btu or higher would work well.

Will this work with my 24’ above ground? Also is the estimated delivery time of 3-7 days accurate for delivery to Ohio?

A  Answered on 5/18/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Justin, Yes this would be adequate for a 24' round above-ground pool, if you were looking to add a month onto the spring season and extend another month for pool closing. Yes 3-7 days is accurate for delivery to Ohio

Would this work to heat a 33K inground pool 5-6 degrees in the spring and fall and also cool 5-6 in the hot days of summer. We live outside of dallas and our pool is already 88...

Hello Alisha.  The Raypak CrossWind Heat/Cool Pump 65-I is NOT suitable for a 33K gallon inground pool.  This RayPak model is designed for above ground pool applications.  Inground Heat/Cool units such as the Hayward HeatPro Heat Pump 120K BTU (Heat/Cool) HP32104T or the RayPak Classic Series 137K BTU (Heat/Cool) R8450Tl-E-HC would be more appropriate for a pool with a volume of 33,000 gallons.   Classic Series Heat Pump 137,000 BTU (Heat/Cool) - 016037   HeatPro Heat Pump 120,000 BTU (Heat/Cool) - HP31204T

If the pool is 8,000 gallons, it would not be enough. The minimum BTU size should be 67,000BTU. Raypak Heat Pumps https://www.inyopools.com/productlisting/heat_pumps_raypak.aspx

I have an inground pool that is very shallow and holds about 10,000 gallons. Would this work for a pool of that capacity?

A  Answered on 1/30/2023 by InyoPools Product Specialist Rich N.

Hi Richard, you would need at least an 85,000 BTU heater to heat your pool 1 degree per hour, so we would recommend something bigger.  Any of the inground heat pumps will be fine for an above-ground pool.  See our article on How Long Does It Take to Heat a Pool? for more comprehensive information to be sure you get something that will fit your needs.
