Spring is here! The good weather is coming and spring implies the restart of the pool. In fact, from 10-12 degrees, it is advisable to put the pool into operation to avoid the proliferation of algae in the water.
Today we are going to talk about warming your pool using heater:
What is a pool heater?
First we have to answer this question. A Raypak aboveground pool heater is a device that allows you to gradually heat the water temperature and consists of:
• A control panel where you set the temperature you want to reach.
• An immersion heater in which water circulates. These heaters are equipped with titanium resistors that are heated from the control panel. Therefore, the water flowing inside the heaters is continuously heated and then sent back to the pool through the appropriate pipe.
Often, the Raypak electronic heater is a single element that also includes the control panel and the immersion heater.
The power of a heater is measured in kilowatts. The higher the potency, the more efficient the heater is and can get to heat large pools.
There is Raypak pool heater for all types of pools; floor, buried, wooden, etc.
Installation and commissioning:
The saltwater pool heater is installed in the normal channeling of the pool, after the filtration unit and before the water treatment. It is powered like any standard equipment: 230V AC or 400V for three-phase models.
Generally, the heaters are connected to standard tube diameters (50 or 63 mm).
Once the installation is complete, it is necessary to define the temperature to be reached and the heater will operate automatically until the indicated temperature is reached.
Once at that point, the heater stops heating the resistors. The heater mustn't be turned off so that it maintains the charge, even if it is inactive.
The advantages of using a heater:
The use of a Raypak electronic heater has many advantages: first, your well-being. You can enjoy a pool at the ideal temperature in all seasons. For your comfort, the heater is also the fastest way to adjust the water in your pool.
Compared to a heat pump, the heater has non-indifferent economic advantages when making a purchase. For a high performance electric heater the price can be 3 or 4 times lower.
Finally, a heater is easy to install and saves space in the technical room as it is fixed to the wall and installed directly in the channeling of your pool.
