Della, I want to again thank you for your very
friendly and professional help in selecting the correct type and
size heat pump for my application. I did a lot of homework on this before finding you guys and
it didn’t take more than a minute with you to know I was
talking with folks who really know the heat pump business!
It was impressive how prompt and exact your follow up was on the
many of the questions I had, due my unusually tight install
location. Everything from pricing to delivery went very
smooth. I really wished I had just contacted you first and spent
all my research time elsewhere! (like fishing). I
absolutely will recommend your firm to anyone that is considering
a heat pump!

You have been most diligent in answering my questions and insuring we
purchased the correct pool heat pump.
I see from your website that many owners have shared their installation
with you. The installation was finished yesterday and it
wor4ks! I personally did the work except an electrician ran the
wire to the box on the wall. The white PVC piping is new and the
old piping is painted silver. I placed new concrete pads under the
pump/filter and the heat pump.
We will turn on the heat during the last week of Asah.

The install was creative to
say the least! (see my photos). And yes, that black hose is
directly off of a Shop Vac!
I have a VERY basic
swimming pool. People thought I was insane to spend so much to heat
a $500 pool~I knew what I wanted, and knew where I could
skimp. I could not stand the thought of going into debt to
have a swimming pool. I settled my mind on an above ground due to
cost. But those metal sided monsters still cost over 5 or 6K for
the size and depth I wanted..add into it the cost of excavation
because we are on sloped hillside. To have it
installed would have added more cost. I doubt we could have
put one of those up properly.
With my flimsy soft sided
pool, we did manage to excavate our own place, after 3 attempts of
putting it up, starting to fill, seeing we were off level,
draining, etc.. we saved the cost of paying someone to excavate. We
spent our hard work and time to get it done, but cost wise, we
saved a bundle.. and learned the ropes of putting the pool together
and dismantling which is required for storage during winter. An
inconvenience, yet not so bad once you learn how to handle it!
Think about how cheap the initial cost was! 500 dollars for a 24
foot 48 inch deep pool! Here in Indiana, most people choose to shut
their pools down Labor Day weekend. That is crazy to me. It
is mid-October, and I will be getting into my pool this

Della thanks for your help, I must say doing business with
your company was a great experience. Not only did I get a great price
on my heat pump, I felt I got really expert advice on what to buy and
how to install it. Your website is really very good and is chock full

to your company. But once I made the decision to buy I was delighted
with the communication about my order and your amazingly fast
response to my E mail with questions about the install. And finally
being able to reach someone on the phone at that moment in the
install when there was that one last question really made the whole
experience a pleasure. The install is now complete and the unit is
really moving the needle (quietly I might add). I am raising the

I just wanted to drop you a line
about how satisfied we are with our Heat Pump we purchased from
your company. We live in the Northeast in Pennsylvania and have
used propane to heat our pool for the past 7 years. We were very
reluctant to try a heat pump for the pool not living in a warm
climate like Florida. After many talks with you and making the
purchase in Asah of this year, we could not be more happy, Our
pool was always the correct temperature and our Electric Bill never
was more than 80 or 90 dollars usual. You have a great product and
great service. Thanks again and we will think of your company
whenever we purchase pool supplies.

TO SEE DAVE'S
Let me say it was truly a pleasure doing business with you and
Heat Siphon SX5.0 arrived in about 5 days safe and sound.
Delivery was convenient as I set the date and time. My
new pool was just installed 2 days ago and hooking up the Heat
Siphon was quite easy. One trip to Lowes' plumbing dept
and I had what I needed to go from 2" male threads to a 1.5"
slip-on hose fitting was all it took. I did have a
licensed Electrician do the wiring for me. Anyway, I have
an 18x33 above ground oval (18,000 gal). After I filled
the pool the water temp was 68 degrees at 8pm. The next
day at 5pm it was 85 degrees. That's 17 degrees in 21
hours for an 18,000 gallon pool! My solar cover was back
ordered so I don't have one yet. The overnight low air
temp was 58 degrees. In the morning my pool was 80
degrees (lost 5 degrees overnight). At 7am I turned My
Heat Siphon back on and by noon I was back to 85 degrees.
1 degree per hour. The unit is also very quiet.
Needless to say I am very pleased with my investment and choice
of on-line dealers. I still have to extend my deck out to
the pool and do some landscaping but please see attached pics

Second year update
I just wanted to let you know this is my
second year with the Heat Siphon SX5.0 you sold me last
year. Opened the pool last week and went from 66 degrees
to 86 degrees in about 30 hours.
Della, I'd like to pass
along two other tips I learned that may help
1) If you're hooking up your heater with flexible hose you
should put an elbow pointing towards the ground on the upper
line. This takes the pressure off the hose and prevents
splitting. I actually went through 2 hoses before I
figured this out and corrected it
2) The heat siphon produces a ton of water/condensation.
So much so it was making the grass/ground soggy and saturated
near the pump. I dug a hole with a post hole digger about
3 feet deep, filled it with crushed stone and attached a drain
hose to the Heat Siphon to drain into the pit. Works
great. No more soggy

wanted you to know how much I like the new Heat Siphon DX 5.0 that I
purchased from you. It arrived safely and I was easily able to
install it myself. I had an electrician connect my Single Phase
220 power yesterday morning. We turned it on at 11:30 am and I
showed a 10 degree rise in the pool temp ( 72 to 82 ) in 24 hours.
It reached my desired temp of 85 this afternoon at 5pm.
We had a cool night last night (64) here in Flower Mound, TX.,
a suburb of Dallas, and it was about 85 today. I have lots of
shade over my pool so this will help us get it warm early and keep it
warm all season long and well into the fall. My grandkids are

after 10 trips to Home Depot (because I kept forgetting
stuff) I got it pretty slimmed down and simplified.
poured a concrete slab (something I've never done before) looking
up instructions online. The unit came and I needed help
moving it, but me and 3 other guys got it on the slab.
Next....I looked for an electrician. My pool is in the
center of the backyard and because I have a concrete patio
between house and pool....all bidders said to trench around patio

a new breaker, run conduit and wire. It took 1 guy
about 6 hours, including digging...parts couldn't have cost more
than $150 so these guys were trying to rake me over the

happy to work!!!

Dear Mr. Starr:
Thank you for sending the photos. Wow is all I can say. Bravo.
It is important that you put the check valve between the outlet
of the heater and the chlorinator. 10 trips to Home Depot
is about right. You are right about electrical quotes. I have seen
the same heat pump job bid at $600.00 and $3600.00. My Generator for
my house was done for $2100.00 and I had quotes up to $8000.00 and
they said that I had to fix the dry wall. The $2100.00 never
tore up the wall to begin with. I asked them how many hours
they thought it would take. They said 2 men for two full days. I told
them I could do it alone in 5 hours. You made a nice clean
looking piping job. I am proud of you. I hope that you have a great
summer. Too bad you didn't ask me. I would have done the job for just
2 Blackhawk playoff tickets and lunch. :-)

Thank you for your help in selecting a heat pump
for our pool.
We live in the cascade foothills and our source for heating the pool
prior to the heat pump was a propane heater.
Our propane bills went from $1,000 per month in the winter before we
built the pool to $5,000 per month after we installed the pool.
To be sure it is a nice pool – It won an award as the best new
residential concrete pool in the state of Washington for 2008 by the
concrete industry. However I felt that $4,000 was too much to
heat a swimming pool. That is when I called you. After getting the
dimensions of our pool it is 22ft by 44ft you recommended the Jandy
AE 3000 TR heat pump at a delivered cost of just about one
month’s propane bill. I installed the heat pump this winter and
I set it to 87 degrees I lowered the propane temp to 82
I found that the heat pump worked great whenever the outside temp was
over 50 and that even in the coldest Washington weather the propane
almost never came on. What that equated to is our propane bill went
from $5,000 to $1,000 and our power bill went from $800 to $1,000.
That is a monthly savings of $3,800 every month and We only paid a
little over $4,000 for the heat pump.
again for all of your help and support.

hesitation prior to ordering was the noise it may

seemed excessively noisy. As you explained by phone, the

sound dampening measures as I had anticipated. My neighbors
have indicated the noise does not bother them either, so all went

when I started up was 60 F and the Pool temp was 66 F at 9 pm
on Tuesday. By 9 pm Wed, the pool was 75 F and air temp was
60 F. By Thursday morning at 7 am the pool was 79 F
.....and by that evening I was looking at 82 F. Over the
week-end I only had to run it only once by the day to
maintain the temperature in the low 80s ( weather has gotten much
better). It hasn't been below 80 F for over a week which is
the first time in 13 years. We have been using the pool
more in the last week than all of the last 2 years.

Thanks for all the help I received from you and Mr. Strong in my
purchase of a Heat Siphon SX5.0 heat pump. The quality of your
service was exceptional. Also, I could not be more pleased with
the performance of the unit. I received it in November, hooked
up the piping then, but I did not get around to doing the electrical
hook-up until last weekend. Nothing was very difficult, and my
electrical work needed only a minor adjustment to pass inspection -
not too bad for an accountant. All materials, piping and
electrical, were under $300. I turned the unit on at 4 PM
Saturday with pool water at 68 degrees and no cover. Sunday
morning the water was 76 degrees. Monday morning it was 88
degrees. I thought I'd see if it would go to 100 just for the
heck of it, but when my wife thoughtfully suggested this might not be
good for the pool plaster, I shut it down at noon on Tuesday pushing
96 degrees. I have no doubt it would have gone to 100.
It's amazing, and I love it. This is a new toy I'm really going
to enjoy. Thanks again.
the numbers other companies advertise on their web sites, it appears
6.0 kilowatts is about correct for this size heater. I have
been keeping the pool at 90 degrees! - what my daughter and grand
children like. With a cover that I did decide to buy last
weekend, I only have to run the heater for three to four hours a day
in this weather, overcast days in the high sixties to low eighties
and nights mid forties to mid sixties. I run the pool pump from
11 am to 7 pm. The heater runs from 11 am until 2 or 3 pm and
doesn't come on again until the next day. Maybe $3 to $4 a day
at 12 cents/kilowatt plus taxes? We'll see when I get the
electric bill. When the sun comes out to stay and the air
begins to hang around 80 more consistently, I'll start backing off on
the temperature. I don't think the heater will be running much at
all. Of course, by May it will be off until late
September. I couldn't be more pleased and

Here are a couple pictures of the Rheem heat pump we bought last
spring. It's in a novel application as a heat-recovery machine
in a solar greenhouse. The 3000 square foot greenhouse has no
other heat source, even though it often gets below zero here in the
mountains of New York. The heat pump takes heat out of the
indoor air during the day and stores it in a 5000 gallon tank, where
it is used for night-time heating via pipes cast into the concrete
floor. During the summer the heat is used to make hot water for
a nearby hotel. A side benefit is free cooling of the
greenhouse, reducing the amount of ventilation we need.
I mounted the heat pump on an overhead rack to keep it above head
level, and to get the warm air from the top of the greenhouse.
It's visible on the upper right in the second picture.

as economically as the sx 5.0 heat siphon. The first time we turned

up to 90 degrees in approximately 4 hours. Amazing.

Thomas bought his Heat Siphon for his villa in Cypress last

You must have steadfast determination to embark on a project like
this when you own a holiday villa in North Cyprus, but the result is
spectacular year round swimming over the Mediterranean Sea! (see
photo). We ordered the single phase 50 Hz Heat Siphon SX 5.0
with scroll compressor on Asah 14 and arranged for air freight to Larnaca airport via AIT worldwide logistics. After some UK
flight routing problems, the unit arrived at Larnaca on Asah 20, but
required a further week before completion of customs clearance
formalities. On Asah 27 I had made arrangements for collection
at the dock, but the local freight forwarding company had
inadvertently dispatched the unit on a delivery truck with the wrong
address. Driving around the island with mobile phone soon
wrangled the truck down in a local retail park to transfer the unit
onto my truck. Driving across the Turkish controlled border
proved to be very interesting as they took a decision on how much
duty to charge me. After considerable debate and discussion
with head office, they eventually waved me through without paying any
duty (which was wonderful as I had already paid European Union duty
at South Cyprus customs!). Arriving to the villa I was
fortunate to have some neighbors come across to help me move the Heat
Siphon onto the concrete foundation. Beyond that, it was a
simple matter of running underground electrics, making plumbing
connections (although drilling through reinforced concrete required
some rather serious air drill equipment!), and commissioning the
unit. Within 72 hours we had the pool up to a very cozy 82 F
and all the children in the estate were laughing and having a great
time. It was a joy to see the dream come true – the first
heat pump in North Cyprus!
While the logistics of air freighting a heat pump all the way from
America to a remote region such as North Cyprus can be tedious and
difficult, I must praise Asa and the AIT team for their follow-up
and support. I really want to thank Asa for including some
critical PVC fittings to help complete the installation, for if he
hadn’t, I doubt I would have found them on the island. I
priced heat pumps in Europe before contacting Poolheatpumps.com and
found that even with shipping and customs costs, I was saving money
by doing business with Asa.

Jessie and Asa,
We live about 1500 feet from the Newaukum River in Lewis
County. When we were installing our heat pump last month, we
thought it would be prudent to elevate the heater a bit because we
have had some flooding before (10 years ago), so we built a
concrete pad that was about 18 inches higher than native
ground…I think you might guess where this is going.
Tuesday morning when we got up the river was roaring through
the backyard and the heat pump was above water with about 8 inches
to spare. We haven’t given up on this swimming season
yet, so the heater was running the whole time and we went swimming
a few hours after this picture was taken. It was 50 degrees
outside and raining - water raging all around - but the pool was a
calm and balmy 85.

heats it up faster. Asa was so much help in deciding what unit and

Just wanted to say I got the pool heater on Tuesday, did the plumbing
on Wednesday, re-did part of it on Thursday, and had an electrician
wire it up tonight. At first start-up the fan blades were
catching the cowling/housing and it was shutting it off. So I
took off the top cover, wiggled the housing around a bit and put it
back on. Seems to be centered properly now and is up and
running. Temp was 64 when I started it at 8:30pm. Waiting
to see how quick it warms it up.

I wonder how many people actually have 24'' of clearance around the

Not bad, 65 degrees to 80 degrees in a day and a half.
I do have one question though. Where the 2 inch PVC pipe screws
onto to the unit itself, I have a small leak there, a drop every 10
seconds or so. So I re-did the line to it and tightened the
heck out of the threaded part and still have a bit of drip. Do
you know if people normally use plumbers tape on those threads or if
you think that would help?
Heat Siphon SX5.0, Phoenix AZ,
Thank you for writing back. I hope that you and your family are well.
I am happy that you have it all working. The fan must have shifted in
shipping. Those unions shouldn't need Teflon tape. The seal is at the
o-ring gasket. It couldn't hurt to try the tape or maybe warm the
o-ring and reinstall it. They have o-ring lube at pool stores that
help when the union is tightened to. The heater makes a lot of
condensation when it takes the heat out of the air and sometimes some
water drips from the water lines. If
you find that nothing you do helps then let me know and I will send
you some new unions.
Please let me know if
you have other questions or if you want me to call you.

that would like a recommendation. I have to say I was a bit
nervous about such a large purchase from a website. I really
appreciate your low pressure, fast responses during the decision
making process that lasted for over two months (my fault not
yours). Although your heater was by far less expensive than
anywhere I could find, I would gladly have paid what the local
folks were charging for the experience I had working with your
I picked up the heater at the trucking
terminal, and really appreciated you getting it out the door so
fast. It arrived without a hitch on Friday. Saturday morning I
poured concrete and by the afternoon the unit was sitting on the
pad. I completed the PVC work in about an hour, it was my first
time so there was an educational process. The hardest part was
running the wires from the breaker to the back yard. I have an
Electrician friend, and that worked out great, otherwise I
recommend having someone else do it.
I cut out the solar blanket to fit the
pool, and fired the heater up at about 6:30 that night. The pools
was sitting at 60 degrees when I started, and by Sunday night
around 7 PM, we were at 88 degrees. I keep the pool at 88 degrees
and the heater does not run as much as I thought it

My experience in
California in Jan and Feb
I was very skeptical when I forked out $4,000.00 to
pay for the top of the line Jandy heat pump for my
pool. I decided to go a little bigger than required.
I was told by everyone and anyone in Merced CA, that
"Those heat pump things don't work around here."
Asa repeatedly assured me that they didn't know
what they were talking about, and that it would work
fine. I was worried. The heater arrived FAST.
Fedex semi pulled up front with a hydraulic lift,
wheeled it right to my garage. I contacted my local
pool company and they agreed to install it for $600
as long as I knew "It wouldn't work this time of
year." I said I knew this, but that I wanted to get a
jump on Summer. The install was a deal as far as I'm
concerned. They put in a separate sub-panel from my
breaker box, 2 different valves...etc... a bunch of
stuff for the money. I'm just glad I didn't The guy
knew exactly what he was doing even though he hadn't
installed a Jandy before. I fired it up Tuesday
morning and the pool was 46 degrees (COLD) and outside
temp was 50 degrees. 72 hours later the pool was 74
degrees. With average daily air temps of 55 degrees,
I keep the pool covered all but the hour that I swim
each day. I have found that I only have to run the
heater 5 hours (6 max ) a day to keep it between 72
and 74 as long as it is covered. Now that the pool is
above 70, the heat coming out of the jets is VERY
warm. In fact, I was surprised at the volume of
water that this heat pump can crank out each minute.I
was also surprised at the warmth at which it comes
out. I purchased the hot gas exchange option for a
little extra for those days below 45 degrees, and
although I don't even think I have had to use this
option yet, I'm planning on using it next January. In
the mean time, I am extremely pleased. I am now using
my pool all 12 months of the year. It is cool to step
out of the water at 9 at night and see the steam rise
off of your body into the 45 degree air. Again, I
thought that these heat pumps were too good sounding
to be true, but let me tell you, technology has come a
long way, and their efficiency is staggering. I feel
sorry for people with solar and gas. In may when the
air warms up a bit, I plan on bumping my pool up to 90
degrees for parties on the weekends. I don't feel
like spending that kind of money now. One very
interesting note. The technician that installed the
pump after completing the installation said "yeah, I
think these things are the way to go, I might look
into one of them for my pool." Haaa Haaa
PS, feel free to use me as a reference.

53 degrees. After about a week of running during the daytime,
we had it up to 83 and were swimming. Spring temperatures in
upstate NY can be quite cool. I am surprised how little the
unit runs in order to maintain the temperature in the mid
80s. After cool nights, it will run for a few hours when the
pump comes on in the morning. Installation was a painless
and it fired right up. I did the plumbing myself and had hired
an electrician do the wring. I figure we saved about

Just wanted to update you on the heat pump you sold us over the
winter. It is installed and working like a charm. When we opened the
pool on April 1st the water temperature was a cool 56 F. The air
temperature was mid to low 50s. The pool temperature is now 88 F with
air temperature around 65. The entire family is now using the
pool. Normally the wife and I would not use the pool until mid July
when the water became 83 degrees. May 4th we were in the pool and
loving it. The neighbors think were crazy but after a very cold
winter on Cape Cod we deserved it.
The heat pump you sold us was the first thing we ever purchased on
the internet. Having been a police officer for 24 years (and seeing
many people scammed on the internet) I was not to thrilled about
making such a large purchase with someone I have never met. You
patience to our many questions and willingness to spend long amounts
of time on the phone helped us make the decision to buy from
you...(not to mention we saved $1,800.00 over a local dealer). Prior
to making a purchase we checked with several others who purchased
from you. They all stated what we now feel. You are an honest
businessman who can be trusted, your prices are great and we are glad
to recommend you to others. Ps. The local dealers are not happy you
are around...I wonder why?
Attached are some pictures of the before during and after.
Total cost for electrician was $150.00. Total cost for plumber was
$110.00. If I had done it myself (which could easily have been done)
would have been approximately $75.00 and two days work.

Well Asa, here we are in June, three months on
from completing the installation of the heat pump we
bought from you! Time sure does fly when one
is having fun and we sure are now the pool is at my
temperature. After much trialing we have decided that 32dC is
ideal at this time of the year with 34dC in winter, we are real
Prior to retirement I was an Energy Consultant so I
take a real interest in cost and performance of energy related
plant so I have monitored the heat pump from the start. To my
delight the costs are proving less than expected and in its first
three months of operation the heat pump has run for a total of 604
hours and cost 199 euros in electricity, an average of just over 2
euros a day. As I now swim every day I feel that this is
very good value and of course our friends love it. Now we are
in summer and the sun has real heat the heat pump barely runs as
the solar heating system has taken over. They work well
together with the solar control system automatically ensuring that
no heat is lost by the solar panels when the sun goes
in. In fact I think its an essential part of the total
Anyway Asa there are three small pics below: the
heat pump, the steps which lead from the heater to the pool, and of
course the pool itself. Also attached as jpeg files are three
larger versions in case you prefer these, hope the pics are
of use to you.
Bye for now, Charles

We have been very
satisfied with our Heat Pump. It arrived in record time. It was
installed in July and has been very efficient.
Our electric bill only increased about $30.00. We have still been
using it even though the temperature has dropped in the 30's at
times. It was like a hot tub yesterday even though the outside
temperature was in the 40's. Asa and staff have been very
accommodating with any questions we had. We like Asa friendly and
personable attitude. I would recommend this company for it has
efficient and friendly service. I will use them for my next purchase.
Thanks you are great.

We finally got the pool dug and the heat pump installed. I'll
let you know how well it works for us but I wanted to let you see the
final installation before fences go up.
Thanks again for your help.

Here are some pics of my pool heat pump in Tulsa, OK. As you
can see it has raised the pool temp almost 10 degs already and it
has only been running since 2pm yesterday. It has only
been about 85deg air temp here during the day and around 70 at
night. I don't know exactly how many gallons my pool is but
it seems that this unit will have no trouble keeping it
Thanks recommending the heat
I'm flattered to see that my pics made your webpage.
You might add the fact that I did the entire install in one day by
myself (yes I'm a little handy at this staff) but I didn't have to
take any special tools to do this installation... just the fact that
the heat pump install is so straight forward makes it easy.

HI Asa. I've attached a few pictures of the new heat pump
installation. Everything went very well. The pump arrived very
quickly and installation was a snap. It's very efficient. I use a
solar cover at night and the pump only needs to work just a few hours
each day to keep my pool at 85 degrees. Thanks a lot.

Got my heat pump installed yesterday!! I ran the 220 wire to the unit
and got an electrician to make the final connections and
checked the voltage and whatnot - saved me a lot of money doing
all the preliminary work. I did the plumbing myself - 3 valves, 2
unions, a check valve, 10 feet of PVC, nearly a dozen elbows and a
can of cement later... I got it working. What a day for this "I will
try anything" hack plumber. The water is still very cold but the unit
is working perfectly so far. I cannot wait to actually get in my pool
and swim after nearly a month of looking at cold water!!
Thanks so much for your patience and help during the sales process...
I had a million questions and you answered them all quickly! You gave
me great advice and a fantastic price!!
Thanks again for all your help! It has been an extreme pleasure doing
business with you!!

I just wanted to send you some pictures
the final result of my heat pump installation.
Everything works great, just as you described! I was
careful to follow all the instructions from the manual
and from what you had said, the pool was warm and
ready to use in 24 hours.
Now it's finally summer up here, 98
Thankfully, the heater only kicks in when I need it,
set it and forget it.
I really appreciate all your help. I
significant research on the Web, and you were, by far,
the most knowledgeable, provided the best selection,
and the best price. This was a big investment and I'm
glad I did it right.

Attached are a few pictures of our gloriously warm pool and the cool
looking mega-quality "Darth Vader" of heat pumps. Allow me to thank
you again for taking a truly personal interest in being sure that we
had the right equipment and fastest installation possible for a job
that brought a few surprises.
We closed on the house on April 30 and on May 1st, before buying any
furniture, we begin our quest for the right pool heater --- and FAST
installation. We wanted to swim!!! Our priorities we definitely
right. We are thankful we found you. Your prices were better and
clearer than five other firms. You can sit anywhere but a
pool...satisfies many needs. Thank you for letting us meet our goals
Obviously the electricians and pump makers know you well, and jump to
do the job right. Imagine my surprise when the owner of the pump
factory calls the same day to confirm all is working after sending
two extra technicians out, and just minutes after speaking with
Yes, you do have right products and the best service. The rarest of
combinations with the best prices. We checked thoroughly before
ordering - and you were the best on all counts. We'll be recommending
you to our friends for a long time. Feel free to provide us as a
reference -- one of many you have I know. It would be an honor.
Again our best wishes and thanks,
