    AquaCal heat pump

    The designer fr pool company said the heat pump I'm getting is a AquaCal 132k.

    What does 132k means and if this machine is sufficient enough to be compatible with my pool size?

    132 k means 132,000 btu per hour.

    It's ok to extend the season or to maintain a warmer water temperature.

    It's not good for fast heating on demand or for really cold weather.

    With it having 132k btu, is that okay for a 17 x 33 pool? I see some people having gas heaters with 400k btu and makes me wonder if mine is puny

    Re: AquaCal heat pump

    My pool isn't much larger (at least based on the size you have in your sig) and I have an AquaComfort 75k BTU heat-pump. A heat pump is meant to provide an on-going slow amount of heat and run for a longer time. Versus a gas heater which I would say delivers more heat in a shorter period of time. I could have gone bigger on BTU's but mine is sufficient in conjunction with a pool cover to maintain the pool water temp during the beginning or end of season or help in the early mornings bring it up a few degrees so thats its nice by the afternoon to get into. I'd try to understand a bit better how heat pumps work. But given your in TX seems reasonable to me. If trying to make a big jump in temps over a short time period a heat pump won't do that.
