    Which pool heater should I get?


    I plan to replace my ancient non working heater. I have a 40-50K gallon pool, so planning to buy 400K BTU size.

    I have spoken to several different people who all have differing opinions on which brand to buy? Obviously durability, price, and efficiency are the main things I'm considering.

    Top 4 brands seem to be:

    The contractor Im leaning towards working with is pushing the RayPak. He says they are easier to repair, and something about them not having a problem with gas pressure.

    Also is it worth it to upgrade to the cupro nickel?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Get the biggest Raypak you can. Cupro is optional, not critical if you maintain the chemistry properly.
