The 250K heater will raise your 10K pool 2.5 degrees/hour. The 400K will raise it by 4 degrees/hour. You can decide if the heating difference is worth the extra money.

I would get the Hayward H-series heater over the Jacuzzi provided you have a Hayward dealer who can repair the heater when necessary. The Jacuzzi heater is made by someone else and has the Jacuzzi name put on it. You need to figure out who will repair it and where you will get parts when necessary.

Raypak heaters are also good.
