My old Teldyne-Laars XE (325K BTU) heater has finally bit the dust and was looking to replace it. Local pool repair suggested replacing it with a Pentair Mastertemp (250K BTU). Quote was $2500 for R&R of the old heater with the new one.
But was thinking of also the Raypak (Model: P-R266A, 266K BTU). Haven't got a quote on that but seems like reading around here that they seem like a good reputation.
I've heard the Pentair might be on loud side in terms of the fan; not sure if that is true. Just want to hear if you have either how it is.
The heater will be used 95% just to heat the spa (pool has solar). I currently have an old ComPool Cp3400 controller. I'm told the Pentair should be compatible but was unsure if the Raypak would be. Not a deal breaker if it isn't. Just looking for something reliable and will last.
