Heat Siphon SX3.25 Pool Heat Pump

Posted by Steve   Washington

Bought a Heat Siphon sx3.25 from you this past Jan, and am wondering if you sell--or know where I could order--a winter cover for it. [We do!]   By the way, the heat pump worked awesome, and we were able to swim from mid-March to just a few weeks ago here in SW Washington.

Jandy AE3000T Pool Heat Pump

Posted by Steve   Washington

This is good news!

You sold us a Jandy AE3000 in March/April with the remote.   It is now all installed and was put in service July 1, 2010.  I forgot I did not tell you the install location was in the shade. Living in Western Washington, you know what our weather was for the next four days.   We started out at 60 degrees water temp.  After first Day, 63 water temp, second day, 67, third day, 70, fourth day, 73.   The Jandy ran 24/7.  On July 6th, we got better weather, into the higher 70's and lower 80's.  The pool temp shot up to 80 by noon on the 6th day.   Turned itself off, like it should when it hit the target temp.  Set at 78 now.   Last night it went down to 74, by 11:00 AM, back to 78, and we are having an 85 degree day weather wise today. 

Anyway, it works fine and the capacity of the Jandy for our application seems to be working very well. I really like the performance of this machine.  It is doing very well so far and I appreciate all your help in selecting the unit.   If you want anyone in Vancouver to come look at my system, please feel free to give them my name.

The pool is 39-41K gallons, with a solar cover, about 40% sun.


An e-mail from Dean to a potential customer asking for his opinions on heat pumps... 

Hi Sam,
I did the install myself, with the help of a couple of strong sons-in-law.
My site is very challenging in terms of terrain and tree cover; i.e., terrain for getting the unit to the site, and tree cover in terms of operational efficiency.  The heat pump we purchased weighed around 350 lbs, as I recall.
My pool is an old pool, built in the late 1930's so everything was a retrofit, which we did in 1997 new power, gas heater, pump/filter, skimmers, etc.  At that time we also pre-wired for a future heat pump even though we went with a propane heater at that time, so wiring was not an issue when we made the switch last year.
The new heat pump replaced our old worn out gas heater.
My pool is around 45,000 gallons.  My old gas heater took around 24 hours to heat the pool, and depending on what heating strategy I used, cost between $400 and $1,500 per month to operate.
The replacement heat pump I got from Kevin Haugen [ president] took around six days to heat the pool, and kept it at a 78 degree temperature for our whole swimming season, which last year was the months of July and August, and into late September.
Kevin also kept in touch with us while we were doing the install and initial operational shake down.  He is a real hands on dealer, plus being located in Washington was an added bonus in our minds.
Last year was challenging due to weather and mosquitos, as you might recall and we got our pool going a little late.
This year we will extend the season and include June.
The pool heater shares a power service with a small cottage we rent on our property.  But the same tenant was in the cottage both in 2010 and 2009.  Comparing power bills, the heat pump cost around $87 for the month we initially heated up the pool and around $82 for the second month, which was simply keeping the heat level maintained. 
The heat pump operated at night and kept the pool at 78 degrees for the whole swimming season, and we never observed it to be running during the day until we got into the colder weather in mid/late September.
It is important to understand that our site is heavily treed (Fir Trees) and our pool gets a lot of shade and the location of the heat pump likewise gets a lot of shade.  So if you have a sunnier location, you will likely do better.
When we still had the propane heater, I recall going out to our propane tank, lifting the cover, and getting the bill from each delivery and slowly opening it and seeing a bill for $300 to $400 dollars each time, sometimes two or more times a month.  Then you look at the fun people are having in the heated pool, you just pay it, but I must admit, that type of cost for discretionary fun gets your attention.  Now with my heat pump, cost is not an issue.  I am also glad I waited to get the heat pump.  The one I would have purchased in 1997 would not have had the efficiency or operational capacity this one has.
So that's our story, let me know if you need additional information.  In my view, getting the heat pump was the best move I made in 2010.
Sincerely, Dean
