We have a Raypak PR266 EN 266,000 BTU Gas heater.
Since completing the pool build a couple of years ago, we had a pool cabana built that is 12/x19 and also encloses all the pool equipment. We did this to help with keeping the pool equipment covered and hopefully last longer.
A few questions / issues I have run into now.
1. Venting the Gas heater - Was looking on Raypak's site and they have a power vented heater that has a fan and reducing the almost 9" vent to 4". We plan to vent through the roof and I was wondering if we could not just use a 9" conduit and reduce it to 4" at the exit instead of the power vent? The power vent shows us as costing $500!!

2. Turning the heater around - The front of the heater is facing the back wall of the cabana where there is very little access Was wondering if I can turn the heater to face forward. I would need to reverse the water headers and maybe the gas line.. Or the gas line can stay where it is and we just reverse the water headers.
Here is a pic of the setup.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
