My PB is giving me an AQUA Comfort Heat pump, but I have two concerns with it. One, ACQU Comfort does not submit their pumps to AHRI for testing, so all of their numbers (BTUs, etc) are suspect. Two, I am trying to find out if this pump will automatically turn on my Pool's circulation pump if the water is below the desired temperature (as the heat pump cannot run unless the pool pump is on). ACQU Cal seems to do this (if you purchase an additional option) and Jandy also seems to do this. If the heat pump cannot turn on the pool pump then the heat pump will not be operating at all times that you would want it to be on (since your pool pump will not be scheduled to be on all the time).
The Aqua Cal and Aqua Comfort operate at a low55 decibels, which is also something to consider. I don't know what Jandy operates at.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the AQUA Comfort heat pump? They operate only through PBs - you can't purchase it directly.
