    New Heater Shopping - Recomendations?

    I've been told my 10 year old Jandy LT natural gas heater is on its last legs and not a good one to begin with.

    What brands should I be looking for? Which ones to avoid?
    ~10-12K gallons, IG, Cartridge, Saltwater, gunite, attached spa.

    Raypak heaters are by FAR, the most highly recommended heater.

    Raypak! They have fewer parts that could break down the road. Other brands have extra boards or blower motors. Raypak's are a simple straight forward heater.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.

    Raypak get the strongest recommendations by far. Having said that I've had very good luck with my Pentair heater and would recommend it without any doubt.

    Size: 12'-21'x39' free form, depth ranging from 4' to 7, attached 6 person spa with spillover.
