    New Gas Heater for SWG Pool

    My Hayward gas heater has to be replaced because the water jacket has corroded. This is my second gas heater in 7 years. The repair man said he thinks it is because of the salt water. I use my Taylor Test Kit to constantly check my water and maintain all of my levels. He recommended that after we replace the heater that I take a sample to the pool store on a regular basis to have documented proof that my water is balanced. We keep the pool open year round and heat it up a few times each month during the winter to swim. Then from March-Oct, I keep the temp comfortable for swimming. Do you have a recommendation for a gas heater that can handle the increased use and the salt water? Thanks for the advice!

    I'm not buying what the repair guy is selling. Raypak is a recommended brand.

    Thanks for the reply! What do you think could be causing it to rust out. I use the pool year round so it gets lots of use. I also heat to about 94 in the winter, not all the time but a few weekends a month. Could the salt and high heat have an impact on the heater? I really am careful about my chemicals and maintaining appropriate levels.

    Thanks!
