Pool/Spa Heaters, 130A-406A
Your pool and spa is a long-term investment that you, your family and friends will enjoy year after year. Now, there’s an easier way to enjoy that investment more often, more reliably and more efficiently throughout the year…the Raypak pool and spa heater.
Think about being able to use your pool or spa at the perfect comfort level even when Fall arrives…or when the first chill of Winter is felt in the wind…or in the Spring or Summer when evenings can turn chilly in a minute! Helping you get more enjoyment from your pool or spa is the smart idea behind the Raypak heaters.
130: Natural or Propane Gas. This is the size heater you would use for round pools 12′-18′ and oval pools 12′x20′- 16′x24′.
206: Natural or Propane Gas. This is a very common sized heater. This would be used on round pools 21′-24′, and Oval pools 16′x28′ 16′x32′.
266: Natural and Propane Gas. This heater is generally used for a mid-sized pool with a deep swimming area or a little larger pool with a flat bottom swimming area. 24′-28′ rounds and 16′x32′-18′x34′ ovals.
336: Natural and Propane Gas. This heater is for large pools. 28′-32′ rounds, 18′x34′-21′x41′ ovals.
406: Natural and Propane Gas. This is the heater for large pools with deep swimming areas. 28′-32′ rounds and 18′x38′-21′x41′ ovals.
PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating:
The Raypak gas heater has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solventborne- and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service.
No need for fans to combat drafting problems under normal conditions. This heater is designed to draft naturally in outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed, it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance regardless of falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc.
These units are available with two different control designs to meet your requirement. They are available with digital electronic ignition, or as a millivolt design. The digital system (pictured) requires external power (120VAC or 240VAC) and generates a pilot only when there is a call for heat. It provides simple setup and easy programming, as well as easy-to-understand diagnostics and simple connections to remote controls. The millivolt ignition system does not require external power. It generates its’ own current internally, with a small thermocouple driven by the constant pilot. The millivolt ignition system is not available in California for natural gas units. See Digital vs Millivolt for more details.
Polymer headers prevent rust stains from harming your pool’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure.
All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger:
The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single piece of extruded copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer to be attained and maintained. Copper-nickel is also available as an optional upgrade.
Stainless Steel Tube Sheet:
Stainless steel tube sheets are used on all Raypak heaters with the polymer headers. This allows for a completely nonferrous waterway, leaving your pool truly rust-free.
CPVC 2″ Water Connections:
Standard with every Raypak is a set of 2″ slip-fit CPVC water connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
The Unitherm Governor inside the header helps reduce condensation from low inlet water temperatures. It automatically regulates the water flow to help keep the water temperature in the heat exchanger above 105°F. Both water temperature and water flow rate are controlled to eliminate condensation, sooting, and scale build-up that can shorten heater life.
Every burner tray is built to last, from the stainless steel burners to the aluminized metal used in the heat sensitive areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of the tray and burners for servicing.
Energy-smart Raypak heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings. They exceed all federal and state standards.
