My family and I would like to thank you again for the exceptional service and product. To all of those on the fence about ordering from Pool Heat Pumps, please read through our testimonial. Our family installed a 22’x42’ Doughbougy Autumn Breeze last summer. We live in Central British Columbia, Canada. While still quite far up North, our climate still gets quite warm over the summer months. Daytime highs are typically 90-100 degrees in July and August with overnight lows in the low 50’s. April and May are much cooler as is September and October.
Last summer we kept our pool covered when it wasn’t in use. The warmest temperatures we saw the water climb to was in the low to mid 80’s. For the most part, the temperatures always hovered around the 76 degree mark which felt a little cold to the adults but was fine for the kids. We were looking to extend our swim season a month or so earlier and later with some form of heat. We had no interest in quickly bringing the pool up to temperature and wanted a source that could maintain our water in the mid 80’s.
After several months of research and questions we stumbled upon Asa Strong at Pool Heat Pumps. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and promptly and took the time to explain the facts about heating your pool with a heat pump. In our current economic times of corporate distrust both my wife and I had an overwhelming sense that we were being taken care of right from the beginning………….our feelings were later confirmed.
I was originally set on a Rheem 170,000 BTU commercial model. Asa explained the pro’s and con’s and we ended up going with a Heat Siphon Z700HP. We came to an agreement on price including all taxes, duties, etc shipped to our door. The price was several hundred dollars less than any other company including the shipping.
Unfortunately, the Heat Pump was only shipped to the local terminal. The company wanted an additional fee paid to have it delivered to the house. We called Asa promptly and explained the situation. To his credit he arranged local delivery and paid for it all out of his pocket. He told us he would honor the agreed upon price despite the shipping mix up.
The Heat Pump arrived in immaculate condition. We thoroughly inspected it before signing for the delivery. The installation was completed in a little over two hours by myself and an electrician. We installed a bypass due to the 160 GPM output of our Hayward variable speed pump on maximum flow.
The air temperature was 50 degrees and the pool temperature 46 degrees three weeks ago when the heat pump was first turned on. During the first day the water rose to 58 degrees. Each evening the heat pump would turn off as the air temperature cooled below 45 degrees. Despite the pool losing 4-6 degrees each night we were able to bring the pool up to 76 degrees after four days. This was our average temperature last summer and it was only the second week in April.
The temperature then warmed into the 60’s for the following week. Our pool rose to 88 degrees within two more additional days. The water temperature has stayed at 88 degrees for the last three weeks and we have been in the pool everyday. We were shocked at how quickly and efficiently the Heat Siphon brought the temperature up. It runs for approximately 3-4 hours each afternoon to maintain the 88-90 degree temperature despite the outside air temperature averaging 60-70 each afternoon with the overnight lows dipping to 50 degrees.
I have no doubt we would be able to bring the pool into the mid 90’s if we wanted to. We have had zero problems with the heat pump since the installation and it runs extremely quiet. The water coming out is 8-12 degrees warmer than the pool depending on the flow rate set on our pump. There was a great deal of condensation the first day which I mistook for a leak. We tested the water for chlorine and it wasn’t present confirming it was just condensation.
Again, I can’t say how pleased we are with the product and the service Asa provided. He is clearly a cut above the rest and personally took care of us. Our seven year old son is in the pool everyday after school enjoying the warm water with us. The ease of installation, performance and price are all second to none. We would highly recommend Asa Strong and Pool Heat Pumps to any of our friends and family.
Please copy and paste our testimonial and the pictures you choose below onto your website. We are 110% thrilled with the heat pump and the service you provided us. Just for fun, we took the pool up to 96 degrees ast week!! It was 55 and raining outside and the steam was just pouring out of it :) Thanks again for all your help and the amazing service.
You are truly a cut above the rest.

Asa, I replied to the satisfaction survey and marked the highest in each category. We are so pleased with the operation of our heat pump. I usually don't do business over the phone but you immediately got my confidence and you followed through in every way that I could expect.
Thank you for your help.

I needed a heat pump that could produce 140,000 BTU's and am very satisfied with the performance.
|#93 Posted January, 2013 by Cris Stellenwerf||Oakland, New Jersey|
My heat pump is finally installed. I did a lot of research and searching on the Internet prior to speaking with you. I just wanted to thank you for the great advice on which heat pump to purchase. You are very knowledgeable and were a pleasure to deal with. Now that the nights are starting to cool down in New Jersey the heater is really being put to use. Your company is second to none. I have recommended heatpumps.com to many people and will continue to do so in the future.
Heat Siphon Z575
|#92 Posted August, 2012 by Keith and Melissa LaPier||Plattsburgh, NY|
We purchased a Heat Siphon heat pump model Z575HP in April 2012 from poolheatpumps.com and Asa, Sales Representative, was truly amazing to deal with. I had numerous questions regarding heat pumps for my pool and Asa answered all my questions. Asa took the time to explain the difference about each of the heat pumps that I had questions about. She even went above and beyond by finding an electrician in my area to install my heat pump who also did an amazing job. Asa called and spoke to the Heat Siphon and this company (Red Rock Mechanical) is now authorized to fix my Heat Siphon heat pump if needed. I do not expect to have any problems but I just wanted to ensure that we had an authorized dealer in our area to fix the heat pump if needed. The Heat Siphon Z575HP tells the current temperature of the pool. When I first set my pool it was 62 degrees and it took less than a day to reach 85 degrees. It was truly amazing. The cost to run this heater is minimal. Asa and poolheatpumps.com did an amazing job with helping me select the pool heater I needed for my pool. I was skeptical purchasing an expensive item on the internet at first but now I highly recommend them to all my family and friends. Thank you for all your time and effort.

Here are pictures of our backyard. I am almost finished. Long haul. We also have a water garden next to the pool as you can see in the pictures. I took night pics too in order to show it lit up. I would love to write a review and have some of the pics on your web site if you wish. I have a swim-out that we installed 3 jets in. I put ½ inch nozzles. I can flip the switch to spa, and open the valves and it works as a great little spa too. Thanks again for all your help. Very happy

Best heat pump and service from a great company. Just wanted to say thanks to the Poolheatpumps.com crew. This Jandy heat pump is far better than i expected . The service i received from pool heat pumps.com made me feel relaxed and confident that making a big purchase over the internet would be smooth, and it was. From day one to the day i received the product took 5 days and it went smooth from ordering to shipping there were no headaches. So thanks to the Poolheatpumps.com crew I highly recommend pool heat pumps .com. p.s I'm floating in 92 degree water and it feels great. thanks

Heat Siphon C575
|#87 Posted April, 2012 by Steve Jones||Key Largo, FL|
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!
|#86 Posted Date by Georgine and Tom|
We have the Heat Siphon up and running, the water is toasty warm. It heated from 71 to 84 degrees in 12 hours with night time lows of 60 and highs in the 70's. The pool is only 6000 gallons and we oversized the heater but we were very impressed with the time it took to get the water warmed up. We cover the pool at night and the heater doesn't seem to run much to hold the 84 degrees. All in all, it was a simple set up. Delivery was quick and they even put the pallet in the garage for us while we had the installation set up. Your company has been great to work with. Thank you for all your help and with the decision on which heat pump to purchase. We think the Heat Siphon was a good fit for us. Thank you again for all your help
|#85 Posted December, 2011 by Marc Siton||Beaver Falls, PA|
Thanks again for all your help at the start. The heat pump is great and a joy to have. I was able to enjoy my pool a little longer and shut down my pool in late October. Here are some pictures and my baby dog is in it to show we're a real customer with real praise for this product. Take care and take it easy! Regards
|#84 Posted September, 2011 by Scott Massey||Fall City, WA|
You folks are fantastic!! I completed the heat pump installation; and two days later we're up to temperature - from 58 to 83 degrees. The Jandy EE-Ti 3000 is terrific, and my wife loves the water at 83-84 degrees, as do I. With the price of propane hugging $3.00 a gallon; we were not getting a lot of use out of the pool. With the heat pump easily capable of heating the water to the low 80's in November - we'll be using the pool a lot more often - year round. The installation diagrams in the Jandy/Zodiac manual were clear and straightforward. I was able to do all of the plumbing and a lot of the electrical work and brought in a certified electrician to check the work and make the final electrical hookups. The new Jandy heat pump is plumbed in parallel with an existing propane heater (as diagramed in the Jandy manual) with a check valve in the heat pump outlet line prior to the propane heater inlet line. I've installed shutoff valves and a bypass valve to facilitate water flowing through the system if I should ever have to remove the heat pump for maintenance. I've also installed a couple unions to enable complete removal of the heat pump water lines for easier access to the other pool system components. One feature that helped sell the Jandy system was the "maintain temperature relay" on the heat pump to override the pool circulation pump schedule and start the pool circulation pump when the temp drops. Working with the Jandy diagrams was a big help and once I got the wiring figured out for my TightWatt2 pool timer instead of the diagrammed Intermatic, the rest was easy and we were off and swimming!! Enclosed are a few photos of the installation.

As my backyard is complete and useable, here are a few pictures of the S. you may use them as you wish If you need additional reference for my area you can have me on your list. You really are taking care of the follow up and are running a great business. Water is being heated to 87 degree..
After some very wet weather, long power outage due to the hurricane, we finally started the pump today! Here are some pictures. My backyard is not yet finished and looks like a swamp from torrential rains (yes even in CT). Pump works great, very easy to setup, and is heating the pool as I write. Thank you
Heat Siphon Z700
|#81 Posted July, 2011 by Ed Hardy||Coldstream, British Columbia|
The Z700 heat pump arrived, and I have it installed. I poured a concrete pad outside the garage for it, then drilled two 3 1/2" holes through the wall and put ABS pipe in them as a conduit for the 2" flexible PVC I used for the heat pump piping. I am enclosing photos of the install. I put the unit on a platform of 1 ½” plywood, on casters for ease of moving, with rubber matting on the top of the platform and around the edges as skirting so critters won’t live underneath. The unit has to sit at about 45 degrees to the wall, which made planning the piping a little more complicated. In the garage, I had to work around the existing wiring conduits, so it is not as neat as I would have liked if I were doing it from scratch. However, the entire original pool installation was not well done, as I indicated in my original email. The instructions do say not to have a bypass, but I put one in for better ease of draining the pipes inside the garage at start of winter. Since I am the only one who deals with this, I have no concerns with it. We used to have to run the geothermal all night to get the pool up a couple of degrees, and it could almost never get it up to more than about 80 except in really hot weather. When I finished the install on this unit, I held my breath and threw the breaker. The unit started up, and at that time, the pool water was about 74. We went out for a few hours, and when we came back, the unit was off. I thought it had shorted out or something, but no, it had already gotten the pool up to 86. 74 to 86 degrees in about 5 hours! My son had his 7th birthday last weekend, and we had eleven 7 year old boys in the pool. The day was a bit cool, so I turned the heater up to 88 and no problem at all! After several years of cool pool and the kids (and wife) going constantly from pool to hot tub and back again, we finally have a very efficient pool heater which can do the job in no time flat! Thanks very much. Regards

I just wanted to thank you for your assistance in purchasing my 125 heap pump. The unit has now been running for two weeks. Your estimate of about a degree an hour increase in temperature was spot on for my 15,000 gallon pool with temperatures in the high 70's low 80's. I appreciated the time you spent educating me on not only heat pumps in general but the pros and cons of each model you carry and also the support you provided me when trying to decide where to install the heater once it was received. I was reassured I made the right decision to use poolheatpumps.com after I had a calibration issue with my heater and within an hour I had an answer on how to recalibrate the unit. I was shock when I received a follow up email from you a couple days later insuring that my issue was resolved and or to see if I needed any other assistance. Your customer service is greatly appreciated.
Heat Siphon Z575HP
|#79 Posted June 2011 by Mike L.||Nanaimo, BC, Vancouver Island, Canada|
I wanted to email and thank Poolheatpumps.com for the amazing customer service, advice, expertise, understanding and patience. We were looking all over the Internet for the best deal on a pool heat pump. We are a new family with a new house that has a pool that had a natural gas pool heater. We knew nothing and this was a big purchase for us. We live in Nanaimo, BC Vancouver Island, Canada where prices are ridiculous.
This unit is CSA approved for operation in Canada. We went with the digital version for a little more. IT IS SO WORTH IT!! It has been a very cold long spring. Our in-ground pool is a 8' deep, 16x40 ' lazy L'. We live on a ridge by the ocean where it is very windy. We have a solar cover on the pool, that has done nothing but insulate as our weather has been so poor till this week(no sun). The pool was 10c(50f) degrees and the air at noon was 12c. We have a 4 month old so we set it to 33c(91.4f). It was 7c(44.6) so the heat pump would not run some nights. The days were cloudy at times raining. The pool was up to temp in only 4 days!! We now have it set at 32c(89.6).
It steams on cool windy day. We absolutely love the digital settings. It tells you the temp you set it at, air temp, pool temp in a scrolling pattern. Best few extra $ we spent ! The pool is consistently 32c. Now it's sunny it gets over that with solar cover on. We will drop the temp accordingly as summer hits. All our neighbors still have their hideous black winter covers on and we have been swimming since May 1st...over a month!!. Install was a breeze. My pool guy plumbed it quick. My electrician hooked it up fast. I put down 4 garden cement pads from local garden store at a cost of $40. Used a level to ensure flat. The unit is NOT LOUD. My neighbor never knew I installed the pump at our fence even. Asa has answered every question I have had, no matter how silly. He's great!! We had the pump shipped to Sumas, WA. We took the ferry and came home same day. Ferry trip was $120. We filled up with has and bought some groceries and so that paid for the trip!! We saved well over $3000 from buying from Kevin and got a WAY BETTER MACHINE. We have had it running in the worst weather and probably should have waited a few weeks. But wanted to get in the pool. We are in swimming while others inside their house...nighttime, is simply amazing!! Thx again, for the GREAT product & service !! *any locals can come check out the pump or email me, and my pool guy & electrician is $35/hr !! Regards

We wanted to express our appreciation to you for our recent purchase of the 125ti featured on your website. You have given us an exceptional product and, most importantly, you have provided us with the most professional and consistent advice throughout the process. You have consistently responded to all of our many questions, and we greatly appreciate your knowledge and expertise as it pertains to this system. We are pleased to report that our unit is functioning perfectly, and that it has enhanced our pool experience tremendously.
Heat Siphon Z700HP
|#77 Posted May, 2011 by Tom Gutowski||Modesto, CA|
Thank you very much for all your expert help with our heat pump installation. The pump works great and looks much better than our old gas heater. You guys run a truly great service. I would recommend you to anyone. We are very happy with Heat Siphon Z700HP heat pump. Our old gas heater broke down so I started to look for an alternative. I was never very happy with the cost of heating the pool with gas. I did a lot of research online and I found your website. The pump arrived in perfect shape as advertised. I thought I would have to pay someone a lot of money to have it installed but after some research, I realized that I could do it myself. I already had a dedicated 220v breaker box by the pool pumps so wiring was very straight forward after a trip to home depot. The heat pump runs fairly quietly, it is not any louder than my air conditioner. It is certainly not as fast in heating the pool and especially the hot tub but with little planning it is not a big deal. My electric bill is higher but my gas bill is much lower so I am looking forward to the savings all summer. Once again, thank you for great service.
105 TI + Hayward Pump for Above Ground Pool
|#76 Posted May, 2011 by Gregory Bosch||Orange County, NY|
All I can say about PoolHeatPumps.com is that they run an absolutely outstanding operation. From my very first phone call through delivery, through set-up and install, they were amazing. They took me from knowing absolutely nothing about Heat Pumps to knowing well, a little bit more about them. But, they sold me the right product for my pool and application and we are VERY satisfied. Everyone that works there is very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help in any way possible. The e-mails are FILLED with information and they take the time to answer any questions. To anyone considering a heat pump, you can feel confident in the people at PoolHeatPumps.com. Side-note: My wife was not completely on board with me purchasing a heat pump but she is as satisfied as I am with the entire experience. I WILL be recommending PoolHeatPumps.com to anyone in the market for a pool/heater. Thank you again to all who made our first pool such an enjoyable experience.
|#75 Posted April, 2011 by Walter Peters||Houston, TX|
I appreciate your great service and educating me on Saturday to help me make a quick decision, my wife and baby boy were able to enjoy our pool 4 months sooner than if we waited for the sun to heat up the pool naturally. We swam all weekend and the water was 88-90 degrees, perfect!
|#74 Posted February, 2011 by Jim Newman||Phoenix, AZ|
Poolheatpumps.com, 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 March. Thanks again.
Heat Siphon Z575
|#73 Posted February, 2011 by MJ S & Martha J. Siede||Hollywood, FL|
Hello! I've attached some pictures of our pool,
and new heat pump( Z575 Heat Siphon) connected, as well as a picture
of the temperature after about 18 hours of running. The pool
temperature started at about 63 degrees, It's up about 10 degrees
since I started it up!
I do want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help and expertise. All transactions with your company have gone smoothly without any hitches. When I started this process, I didn't know which end was up! Do I get an electric heater, a natural gas heater, solar panels or heat pump. I filled out your questionnaire and received a prompt response from Asa Strong. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain the differences in a way that I was able to understand. Your website is an encyclopedia of pool heating information and very helpful. Asa thank you for extending the special discount price from December 2010. We so appreciated it. I can't wait to start swimming!
You can count on us to refer you to any and all folks looking for and
inexpensive, hassle-free way to heat their pool! It gives me peace of
mind to know you are only a phone call away!
|#72 Posted February, 2011 by Joan L.||Georgetown, DE|
This is the second heat pump we purchased from this company. It is very economical to operate as opposed to gas. Plus this company (Pool Heat Pumps) was responsive when we needed a part and tech support, so when we put in our new pool, we ordered another heater from them. It was delivered free, in a timely manner and works just great.
|#71 Posted February, 2011 by Ann Crum||Brown County, IN|
Everyone at Poolheatpumps.com, 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 evening!
|#70 Posted January, 2011 by Jackie Sandage||Carson City, NV|
We have had the heater up and running since last Friday. Oh my goodness, it is awesome!!!!! Everyone (yes, me too) have been in the pool every We keep the solar blanket on it religiously so the heater does not kick on too often but keeps it nice and toasty warm. LOVE IT!!! Thanks Again
Smartemp Control Board
|#69 Posted January, 2011 by David R.|
I want to thank you and
poolheatpumps.com for provided me with the proper replacement
control board for my pool's Smartemp heat pump, including the
courage to replace the control board myself. After learning that my
heat pump was not functioning, I called a pool repair company to fix
the heat pump. They came out and told me that a needed a HVAC guy.
I had one come out. He told me that my control board was bad, but
he did not have the replacement and could not help. I googled heat
pump control boards and found your firm. You sent me pictures and
installation instructions by email to give me confidence that this
is what I needed before I ordered. Everything you said was right.
You shipped the control board out immediately, I installed it and
my heat pump is working great. Because of you I spent a only few
hundred dollars on a replacement control board versus $3,600 on a
new heat pump.
I appreciate your service and devotion to customer service.
Heat Siphon SX5.0
|#68 Posted December 2010 by Dave Dahl||Willingford, CT|
Let me say it was truly a pleasure doing business with you and poolheatpumps.com. My 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 of the initial installation. Regards, Dave Dahl
|#67 Posted May 2010 by Tim Rains||Sammamish, WA|
My pool is now heated! Pictures are attached. The hardest part, besides digging the trench, was finding an electrician that didn't want thousands of dollars to wire the heater. 85 degrees and happy, despite the 60 degree temperatures in WA right now. Thank-you for all the help.
