I live in Northern Nj and my original 400k BTU NG Raypak has gone kaput after 13 seasons. During that time, it has not been trouble free and considering that, I would prefer a different brand. My pool specs are as follows:
Approx: 30K Gallons
SWG for chlorination
Above average sun exposure
I will only be using the heater to warm up the pool on weekends. With that, I have a couple of questions:
1) Do I need a 400K heater or will a 333K (Less Expensive) Suffice?
2) Is a Cupro-Nickel exchanger necessary with a SWG?
3) Can someone make a recommendation for the unit and an online source?
4) Realistically, can a HEAT PUMP work effectively in NJ?
Thank you in advance for your help.
