“ Type: Pool Heater „
This 3kw heater on a pool will really increase the amount of time you will spend in your pool. We have a 6' x 10' bestway rectabgular pool and this Intex heater works great. Please don't expect to see an increase in pool water immediately but over a 24 hour period i have experienced a 10 degree increase in temperature. Our pool water if not heated in the summer months seems to stay at around 20 deg C (dependent on ambient weather conditions) and with this heater working for 12 hours a day we maintain a water temperature of 30 deg C.
This product has a thermostatic switch so even if you where to leave the heater running it will always cut off when the selected temperature has been reached. (and also keep your electric bills from soaring).
The great thing about this heater is that it has given us so much use out of the pool. Imagine the days that are overcast that you would not normally go in the pool? Well, with the heater you will venture into the water even if the outside weather is not extremely hot.
The kids have had an absolutely amazing summer and its all thanks to the pool heater.
I would recommend this product to anyone who has a pool between 8ft and 15ft in diameter,. If you have a larger pool then this product will not be suitable and you will need to look for a heater in the 6 -12 KW range. Note that when you leave the 3kw products you will need to engage an electrician to install as they require hard wiring into the electrical mains of the house whereas the 3kw heaters are fed from a 13amp standard plug.
My personal recommendation is not to run the heater during periods of inactivity. for example: if only using the pool at the weekends only run the heater for 24 hours before use as it will use the same amount of electricity to heat the pool as it will to maintain a temperature. If the pool will be unused during the week then it will expensive to run all week for it to just sit there dormant.
This products set up takes only 10 - 20 minutes and is supplied with the hoses and jubilee clips required to fit onto your existing pool flow and return pipe stubs.
The latest Elecro EVO pool heaters have evolved from the 800 Series. These units come fully equipped and pre-wired including a super sensitive flow switch, that allows safe coupling to Intex, Costco, Macro and Argos type splasher pools. They also come complete with a control thermostat, safety thermostat and integral contactor relay. The heaters are very easy to install, requiring only final connection to a mandatory separate RCD.No pump interlock is required. All heaters come fitted with 1½ BSP female threaded adapters for easy connection to all pipe work. All heaters are supplied with hose tail adapters for connection to flexible pipe work, and heater sizes 12-kW through to 18-kW are also supplied with 1½ BSP unions for connection to rigid pipe work. Stainless steel heaters are suitable for use with chlorinated pools & are NOT suitable for salt water pools. If you have a salt water pool it is essential that you use a Titanium heater that is suitable for any pool including salt-water installations.
