    Refurb raypak 2100 - 206

    My Hayward 150FDN lasted about 4 years but is apparently toast - bad leak and board. Would NEVER buy a hayward heater again.
    A pool company is offering me a 2 year old refurb Raypak 206a.
    They say they are putting in a new top(?) meaning heat exchanger at least, and giving me a 18 months warranty to cover what's left in the summer.
    A new one here would run me about $2K installed w taxes - they are offering the refurb for $1200 or a savings of about 40%.

    However the refurb Raypak also had a pinhole leak and the prev owner wanted to upgrade his equipment anyway apparently.
    So not sure Raypak would last either. I guess my concern is that the hole was just brazed.

    The 40% off is appealing of course.
    Would you ever install a used refurbished heater, or have suggestions in this regard?

    Unless they actually replaced the entire heat exchanger, I wouldn't go for it. If it had a pin hole leak in the heat exchanger then the previous owner didn't take care of their water chemistry.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.

    Dittos. I would not purchase a used heater unless the heat exchanger had been replaced.
