New to the board. I greatly appreciate anyone’s input into this topic.
Currently have a Propane pool heater (Jandy Lite2). Heat exchanger just went bad & this is the 2nd one in 4 years to go bad.
Considering buying a Hayward Heatmaster Heat pump & have a few questions.
1. It looks like current Hayward pumps are called Heatflo; so are the Heatmaster models outdated? Does it matter? The prices for the Heatmaster models are not much more than a 400k BTU propane H series heater by Hayward. Also Leslies Pools has free installation currently too
2. In the past, have used our propane heater intermittently to warm up the pool when we want to. It did it pretty fast. So never really noticed a big propane bill. Would running a heat pump continuously be much more expensive? Just trying to get some perspective.
