    Please suggest a heater...


    I'm looking to buy a electric pool heater for my above ground 18' x 48" round rubber pool in my signature. I have looked around a little bit and have not been able to determine how many BTU's are required to raise my water temp 20 degrees like from 70 to 90. Naturally I'm not looking to spend too much money and don't expect to use the device very often but I do hope it can manage to heat my pool over a cold weekend about twice a year. I'd love to see a flat/easy formula too that shows how many BTU's I need. I do expect it to run on a 240 volt circuit.

    6,618 gallon above ground Intex Easy Set model 10320 inflatable ring 18' X 48" rubber pool.
    Intex model T633 2,500 GPH single speed 1/2 hp filter pump.
    Rinz-N-Reuz Replacement Filter.
    Intex 120V Krystal Clear Saltwater System CG-28669 with E.C.O.

    If you insist on electric, I would suggest coates. Here is their sizing guide, hopefully this helps. Seeing that you are in Houston I would suggest gas, or propane over electric.
