Looking to add a electric heat pump heater prior to next season. Pool has a lot of shade from neighbors. Temp occasionally reaches 84-85. Usually stays 81-83. Too cold for the littles. What would you recommend? I understand we will need the highest BTU available. My pool is always the clearest around thanks to TFP!

If we do indeed get the aquacal normal version sq225, it states min/max speed of 30/70 for water flow. Right now I have single speed pump so no problem. Long term when I upgrade the pump to a vs would it work with a vs at a low setting?

You would test it by turning it on with your VS at 800 rpm and raise it by 100 rpm and when the heater turns on add 200 rpm to it for filter pressure just in case.. that becomes your min rpm for running the heater :)
