Thanks to all, between the good people on this site and some exhausting internet searches/reads and phone calls/visits to various pool companies in the area I decided the heat pump would be best for me.
I have basically narrowed it down to two makes, aquacal and aquacomfort.
Does anybody have any experiences, comments, options with or about these companies ?
Also I don't understand something, and this happened with both vendors I am dealing with.
When I was considering going propane, every pool company I spoke to always offer the biggest propane heater they had the 400,000 BTU unit.
Would it not make sense to buy the biggest heat pump unit also ? both makes mentioned above have a 140,000 BTU unit but both companies are offering me the 125,000 BTU unit.
Just wondering why bigger isn't better ? more BTU's more heat
