I am in the process of buying an aqua cal T135 heat pump, my question is has anyone installed one DIY? Am I crazy for trying? I think I can save about $1,300 installing it myself, just looking for first hand opinions from anyone who has installed one.
Hi all, I have an AquaPro Pro500 heat pump with perhaps the worst user manual of any product ever produced. The manual states that I should have a Hartford loop in the plumbing. I have some idea of what a Hartford loop is, but not entirely sure. Can someone please describe it to me, and more...
I was thinking about removing the 90 behind the salt water cell so I could continue the pipe coming off the valve straight into the heater and then straight back and 90 into the salt cell. If that makes sense?
Does that seem like it would work?
There are better experts, but I think the salt cell needs a straight run of pipe on either side, so you may want to run to the heater as you mention, but remove the salt cell and turn it 90 degrees and plumb in enough straight pipe to keep it working... if you try to come back to the same spot, you may have an elbow immediately at the inflow of the cell and it could cause some issues. I can't really tell if you have enough play in the cell wiring to make that work though.
That’s a good idea, I will check later and see how much extra cord I have available. Would I also have to move the flow switch to the discharge side of the heater or can that stay in the current location?
