    NG heater recommendations?

    Hi folks,
    I wonder if anyone would care to weigh in on which NG heater to buy to replace my Hayward H400? Would you replace it with another Hayward or go in a different direction and why?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    The general recommendation always seems to go back to Raypak. Fewer parts, easier to repair, no blower ....

    Re: NG heater recommendations?

    Thanks for the replies. I have three companies recommending three different systems. Raypak, Pentair and Hayward. All coming in about $3500 installed. I'm sure I could install it myself and save about $1200 but I believe I'd be up a creek if I ever tried to make a warranty claim.

    I would go with the Raypak. $3500?? Other than the heater, assuming a 400K BTU, are they having to do gas piping or something?

    No special circumstances on the install. Unfortunately, that's the cost of doing business around here.
    I am comfortable with the plumbing and the electric but, again, I worry about warranty claims being covered if I do the install.
