I have a 16-foot above-ground Intex pool in Paradise, NL. July 2015 was the coldest month on record in a LONG time and by using this pump and a good solar blanket I was able to economically maintain a 30+ degree celsius temperature throughout the summer. My kids logged a LOT of time in the pool! Couldn't do without it.
The heat pump works well. We installed it on a 12x24 above ground pool. When the weather is warm, it will increase temp. 1 degree per hour. Only a couple complaints, the pump is slightly different than the picture, the "feet" of the unit do not extend outside of the frame, so screwing it down to something is difficult. Also, the water in and out are of the back, not the side. Overall a good value.
Much Smaller than I imagined, but heats the pool nice here on the East Coast.
Was interested to know this was a Hayward Brand when I called to inquire about warranty. Price is really darn good! Shipped quick too. Thank you pool supplies canada.
My brother has this Heat Pump, worked excellent this past Summer on his 18 round above ground here in Paradise, Newfoundland.
