    Question Installing a Heater

    I have an equipment/installation question. I purchased a Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm Pool Heater. It is plumbed for a 2 inch intake - however my filter and outflows are 1-1/2 inch PVC. Can I go from 1-1/2 to 2 inch at the heater intake? Will the heater receive enough water pressure to run????

    Welcome to TFP!

    Using adapters to change the pipe size near the heater is totally fine.

    Thanks JasonLion,

    Another question: The Sta-Rite 333 Max-E-Therm Pool Heater comes set to 220 by default. There is an exchange 8 pin module (included) to switch to 110. Question is there is no up/down on the module. It goes in either way. No mention of orientation in the installer manual. Does it matter - don't want to blow the controller.

    It is keyed in that it should only fit one way.
