Hi all. I just ran a natural gas line to my backyard and now ready to buy a heater for the pool. My pool is 12x18 oval and a salt water system. I found a site to help calculate square footage and it comes out to be about 170 sq ft. My research pointed me to the Hayward H1001D heater. Its 100k btu which is way more than I need. So here are my two questions. Can someone recommend a better heater for my needs while keeping price below $1000?.
The second part is installation and location of heater. I don't have any room to put a heater near the pump and motor. Is there anything wrong of the heater is installed about 20-25 feet away from the pump? The pump is about 3-5 feet from the pool wall where return is. So basically the heated woater will travel about 20-25 feet back to the pool. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you
