New Heater Recommendations
After a season without a pool heater, its time to replace our old one which is beyond repair. Our pool is roughly 25,000 gallon (18 x 36) vinyl - with a 3/4" gas line and a 3/4hp Hayward pump-- located in Northern NJ. We use it June through September. We have already sourced and are considering a Raypak 336A-EN-C Digital -336,000 BTU. Our town is insists on a licensed plumber and electrician for the install (as a home in the area burned to the ground from a pool heater). Because of these restrictions, our trusty pool company doesn't want to do the install and has offered to sell us the heater and let us arrange the installation. We have found a plumber and electrician to do the job.
Q? Are any of you unhappy with your Raypak? Do you love your Raypak? Do you have a similar (or exact) heater? Are there better heaters out there? If so what do you recommend instead (please no spammers) and why?
Suggestions and thoughts encouraged and will help us make this decision. Thanks!
