When choosing a Heat Pump there are three crucial elements to consider; sizing, design and pool environment.

To determine what size Heat Pump is right for you the questions to ask are:

  1. Pool details; water capacity, type of pool (fibreglass, concrete, acrylic, vinyl) in-ground or out of ground, has it a cover & what sort of cover.
  2. Environment; is it indoor/under cover/sheltered, wind rating, lowest, highest & average air temperature.
  3. Your expectations; make the season more comfortable, extend the season, swim all year round, what is the desired water temperature.
