150,000 BTU Heater for a 30 Foot Pool

Postby coldmark » Fri 30 May, 2008 13:03

A friend has a never used Hayward H150 heater that he will sell for $450. A bit undersized for my 30 foot round pool, but do you think this would work? My pool averages about 50" in depth.

Thanks!

Yes it will work and you will make bath water.but is a total wast of money. It all depends where you live.

In Canada?

I live in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan which I guess has a similar climate to Canada. I'm definitely getting a heater, just trying to decide if the 150K BTU will work or if the 200K BTU would be needed. Here's the choices I have:

Hayward H200 for $1000 - Pool dealer made a mistake on my pool so they're giving me a good price on this heater.

Hayward H150 for $450 - A guy at work has one that is 3 years old but has never been hooked up. He said he'd go as low as $450.

Which one should I go with? Would like to have the pool going by next weekend. Thanks!

From googling both and the price your getting, looks like you're getting about a $400 deal from pool dealer.

I'd personally go with the ... ........ um ...........

Hayward H200.

8) or would that be warm.... :lol:

Good luck either way. :D
