Weather patterns have become pretty erratic here in Ohio. June and July are beautiful for swimming but it gets down into the sixties in August, and last August it regularly got down in the forties. I'm SO glad I got the heat pump this year! Last year I might as well have closed on July 31st; this year I'm shooting for October 1st.

Aquacal Tropical 90 Pool Heat Pump

Posted August 7, 2018 by Maryann Apicelli Woodridge, Virginia

I did a lot of research over the last few years about some type of heater for my above ground pool. I had never considered a heat pump until this year. Looking at the various options for sale through regular pool suppliers didn't tell me much about what type of heat pump would be best for me. Then I came upon and I am so glad I did. I had questions about everything - what type was best, what size, best warranty, etc. I submitted my questions and almost immediately I received an answer. I was very pleasantly surprised. I was given several choices along with which company had the best warranties and which would work best for my pool size. They also gave me information to give to my electrician about the installation. When it came time for installation my electrician called them for more detailed description on what type of hookup the unit needed and they gave him the information over the phone. That type of customer service doesn't happen very often! Overall, a wonderful experience and an excellent product. We are loving our nice warm water in our pool this year and I'm sure we will continue to enjoy it for years to come. Thank you Pool Heat Pumps!

From initial purchase at to he local installation in New Hampshire by Daigle Pools, my wife and I had a great experience considering this is our 1st in ground pool. Expert services from helped us select the right size equipment for the pool. Delivery was prompted and pump was expertly shipped (one of my biggest concerns when ordering). Daigle Pools, Londonderry, NH were fantastic - they didn't pressure me to buy the equipment from them and also gave solid advice on heating equipment - for this, they will are my only go to Pool Company in NH I will go too. They setup the equipment and opened pool - they will be coming back for maintenance and the closing. Excellent company - working with Jim was a breeze. My family is excited to extend the New England pool season.

Aquacal Tropical 115 Heat Pump - Pool size 21ft Round Pool, 12,000 Gallons

Posted June 20, 2018 by Andrea Inman Cleveland, Ohio

I couldn’t be more happy with my heat pump. Even though it was costly up front it will more than pay itself off. It heated our water so quickly to our desired temperature (way less than 24 hours even) and we live in Cleveland, OH. It is so very quiet and so efficient. It barely turns on and is able to keep the water temperature at the level desired. We have barely seen a change in our electric bill..we were shocked!!!! We unfortunately had to drain our pool in the middle of pool season because our liner had a hole in it.. so we refilled our pool with COLD hose water, turned on the heater.. and once again in about 12+ hours we had 90 degree water again. The customer service was great from this company. I was so confused on what size that I needed to get and the stores around me were not very helpful. I emailed what I was looking for and within hours I had someone calling me and walking through which product would be perfect for my needs. THAT”S SERVICE!!! I don’t EVER write reviews for products but my experience was so great that I needed to let others know that are looking that this is what they should get and where they should purchase from!

Gulfstream HE150RA Pool Heat Pump

Posted June 18, 2018 by Devon Montgomery Township, New Jersey

We live in central NJ. Our heavily shaded inground pool (21k gallons) had a propane heater system that needed major repairs. My wife and I are engineers, and we ran the numbers for all of our heater replacement options using our experience with the propane system as a reference. We decided that the cost savings and environmental benefits from a heat pump outweighed any inconvenience from the reduced heating rate compared to natural or propane gas. We brought in three pool companies to quote the work. All of them gave nonsensical reasons for not installing a heat pump, and the price quotes reflected their lack of enthusiasm. One company did let on that the incentive for installing heat pumps isn't great because pool companies cannot provide service to heat pumps (only companies qualified to work with AC coolants, like a heating & AC company). Thus, we went the semi-DIY route by ordering the heat pump unit from and couldn't be happier with the results. Asa (the owner) was an excellent resource and was willing to match a lower price on another website. We called a number of heater companies and chose a Gulfstream unit due to their warranty, excellent customer service and the footprint of the unit working well with the pad originally sized for the propane heater. We were able to bring in electricians not associated with the pool companies and got significantly lower quotes for the work. We hired some strong arms to swap the heaters on the pad and did the plumbing ourselves. The heating rate and energy consumption matches our expectations and we were pleasantly surprised how warm the water felt coming out of the pool jets. We are grateful for the service and information that provided for this project. Everything went very smoothly and we saved a good deal of money compared to working with a local pool company!

AquaCal SQ225 - Pool Size: 40x20, 35,000 Gallons

Posted June 15, 2018 by Heidi Freeman Las Vegas, Nevada

We live in Las Vegas and were told by others that the heat pump doesn't work in low humidity, but Asa assured us that the heat pump would meet our needs. We got our heat pump installed at the beginning of the summer and on its first use it raised the water temp from 78 to 85 in about 6 hours, which way exceeded our expectations, but granted the air temp was 100. It used about the same electricity as running the AC. We've only needed to use heat pump once since then when we didn't put on the pool cover and it was windy overnight. Otherwise, the pool cover and summer temps have kept the water in the high 80s. Looking forward to seeing how the unit works this fall and next spring.

I have a 30,000 gallon pool that was too cold to use in early spring. I installed the heat pump and turned it on around 9:00 pm. The next morning the pool was about 10 degrees warmer and very comfortable to get in. I do have a cover which helps maintain the temperature. I live in Phoenix and the cooling feature of the pump keeps my pool from getting too warm in the summer. I am sooooo glad that I purchased this heat pump!

Aquacal SQ225 Pool Heat Pump - Pool Size: 20 x 40, 30,000 Gallons

Posted October 24, 2017 by Claire J. Wilmington, Delaware

Best purchase I have made in many years. I have always hated COLD water. For many years, I would only swim when a heat wave in July sufficiently warmed the water enough that I could walk in without hesitation. I purchased the largest model for our 20' x 40' inground, concrete pool. Asa was the ONLY person who understood what size ewe needed. The pool company did not and even Aqua Cal folks contradicted themselves. My husband installed our unit and it took about 3 days for it to go from 68° to 85° at the end of May, 2017 I Delaware. Water stayed a constant 85° and even went warmer on it's own when temperatures climbed into the 90's. I swam more this past summer because the water was gloriously warm than I have in the last 15 years! I can not recommend a heat pump enough. Will definitely buy another when we wear this one out!

Gulfstream HE125RA Pool Heat Pump - Pool Size: 33 x 17

Posted August 30, 2017 by Dominic Todarello Howell, New Jersey


The heater is up and running and I performed 2 separate tests.

The first test was with the solar cover on. The temperature increase from 83 degrees to 86 degrees in approximately 3 hours, maybe a few minutes longer. This test, I did not track any temperature, humidity, wind speed, etc. This was done at a starting time of 11 a.m. about 4 days before the second test.

The second test, which was performed on August 25th, 2017 started at 8 a.m. in the morning, and ended exactly at 2:22 p.m. Ironically, I went outside to check on the temperature of the water and the heat pump shut off at one degree higher than set temperature. The heater never turned back on for the remainder of the day. Easy to follow as the unit is outside my office window at home.  Please note that this test was performed without a solar cover.  Below, you will find a detailed spreadsheet tracking temperature increase of water every 30 minutes. The other information was obtained from an internet search. The cost of electricity is based on rates in Monmouth County, New Jersey.


Updated 09/28/2017

The heater has also been used several times in the month of September. The water has always been maintained at 85 degrees. The filter shuts off around 7 p.m. In the morning, and without any solar cover during the evening, the starting temperature has been around 82 degrees. The pool water temperature was back up to 85 degrees within 4 hours. It appears that the higher the starting temperature, the water will heat up in a shorter time. Therefore, it is best to keep the heater on at all times. I can easily turn on pump/heater at 6 a.m., and by 12 p.m. have the pool back up to temperature.

I am really happy with the unit and as the season ends in NJ, I will have to wait until 2018 before real testing and true cost of electricity can be determined.

AquaCal Super Quiet 225 Pool Heat Pump

Posted August 10, 2017 by Jennifer Watertown, Minnesota

I live 30 miles west of Minneapolis in Minnesota (very cold winters) and purchased a new Aqua Cal $Q225 pool heat pump in May 2017 to replace a 5 year old Raypak propane pool heater. The heat pump is used to heat a 15 year old, 30,000 gallon, 20'x 40' in ground, vinyl lined pool.

Until l found, I found the process of purchasing a heat pump in Minnesota to be unbelievably difficult. I talked to my pool service company in addition to two others during my research phase and not one of them told me that a heat pump would work for my purposes. In fact, I was told it would not work and that I would need a gas heater in addition to the heat pump. I knew this was not accurate and contacted Asa Strong at Asa was very patient, helpful and continued to assure me that a heat pump was a good option for Minnesota/cold weather pools.

I understood that the drawbacks of a heat pump included:

- higher initial price,

- inability to heat water during extreme cold periods (temps below 45 or 50)

- slower heating of pool water

The advantages included:

- Lower operating cost (based on my calculations of what a gallon of propane costs, compared to a KW of electricity, this is a huge savings),

- Longer heater life (about twice as long on average)

- Titanium Heat Exchanger is guaranteed and more resilient to water chemistry problems.

 The first drawback wasn't really a drawback when compared to the heat pumps avg life span and the fact the heat exchanger is guaranteed (this was the reason I needed to replace the RayPak propane heater). And, because I do not really begin using the pool until late May or early June, and typically do not swim much past labor day, I was not concerned about the second drawback on the list. Finally, because I planned to set the temp to a certain temperature and leave it (usually 87 degrees), I wasn't all that concerned about the time it took to move the pool water temperature. The Pros far outweighed the Cons and I ordered the heat pump.

Delivery was a very quick and was a breeze. Installation was a bit trickier, as I did not have a clear idea who to use. I ended up hiring my very negative pool service company (they did a fine job, all the while questioning my decision) and a local electrician. One thing that did surprise me was the amps needed for the heat pump. I assumed I was perfectly fine for electrical needs because I have a stand-alone panel at the equipment pad that had room for a220v circuit. However, l was initially told that I would need to bring more amps out to the panel. Luckily, that did not end up being necessary for me, however, l do suggest other buyers look into this, as it is something to consider when figuring out the costs.

Once everything was hooked up and running, I started taking notes. Following are dates, times and temps as the heat pump brought my pool from 59 degrees to 87 degrees in just under 3 days:

6/1/17 Water Temp Outside Temp
4pm 59 80
10pm 62 71
8am 65 70
noon 68 85
5pm 72 88
9pm 74 83
8am 78 73
noon 80 86
5pm 82 87
8am 85 69
noon 87 78

The continuous running of the pool heater cost approximately $40 during that 3-day period to run, assuming my math is correct. Once the heater reached 87 it turned off and only runs a bit in the morning to bring it back up to the set temperature. We have an aquamatic pool cover and that helps retain overnight. My pool pump and heater are set on timers to run 9am - 7pm.

The only other thing I would mention is that the pool heat pump drains water as it runs. I had not run across that information in my earlier research and it surprised me. I thought I had a pool leak. It's worth noting for people who have their equipment near their house or where it is visible because I would imagine that over time it might have an impact.

I could not be happier with my heat pump. I can't understand why pool service companies in Minnesota are so misinformed and ignorant. But if you are worried about using a heat pump in a place like Minnesota, don't be. They are awesome.

Dear Asa, We are thrilled with our heat pump we purchased from you in May, 2016. We have a 33,000 gallon pool and the heat pump consistently keeps our pool at our desired temperature of 88 degrees. We swam last year into late October and I believe we may have gone longer but rainy weather didn’t permit--we’ll see this year. It was a risk trying heat pump pool heating because even pool suppliers in our area are not aware of this method. Thank you for the time you spent with me when we were making our decision. It turned out not to be a risk at all! I am attaching a picture of our pool and of the readout on our heat pump.

Following several months of research on pool heaters, I settled on an AquaCal heat pump. This company has been wonderful from beginning to end. It all starts with the first phone call to "Asa Strong".  Asa, the owner of this company for many years is to be commended for his patience, kindness, knowledge, and expertise. He certainly knows the product! This particular heat pump was recommended by many pool companies in the city where I live, so I felt confident I was making the right choice based on the science behind the functioning of the pump! The unit arrived when the company said it would arrive in excellent condition! The set up and installation was seamless! Then for the final test! Turn it on and watch the temp of the water heat up. It heats up quickly and the wonderful feature of shutting itself off when it arrives at the desired temp is great. How brilliant to be gathering the air to heat up your pool! This was an investment well spent and have been thoroughly enjoying the warmth in what can be a cold New England!

Asa, I got the heat pump installed (we got the HE125RA by Gulfstream per your recommendation). I was close to purchasing a different brand based on other sellers recommendations until I spok with you about Gulfstream. This is a superb unit and I am very impressed with all aspects. It was super effective in raising the temp of the 24,000 gallon pool from 79 deg to 85 deg in about 15 hours. Then, I took it up to 89 deg the next day to see what it would do. Again, it got it there quickly. We are in North Carolina and the ambient air temp was 80 deg that weekend. It is easily maintaining the temp at 89 deg and I don’t even notice it running very much. The unit is very quiet and looks great. I think the plastic structure will allow this unit to last a long time.

Thanks for the great recommendation. I would purchase from you again and I have already recommended your company to many others.

Posted by Jim May 17, 2017 Knoxville, Tennessee

I have attached a couple photos of the heater installation. Also we used it for the first time this past weekend and it worked great. It heated the pool from 75 degrees to 88 degrees in less than 12 hours total time and the ambient air temperature ranged from the low 70s to mid 80s.


Aquacal T90 Heat Pump review

Posted by Mark January 25, 2017 Surprise, Arizona

Installed late November 2016 to replace an aging 400,000 BTU gas heater that heated the water fast but cost a lot to run.  Any time we used the pool a lot, I always cringed when the next natural gas bill arrived!

Since I was having some HVAC work done on the house, I paid the crew to install the pool heat pump too since they had installed them before.  In hindsight I paid them way too much as it took just an hour for two guys and I could have done it myself with a little help to place the unit.  Oh well.

In December/January in the Phoenix area, the days are cool (50-60F) and nights are fairly cold (35-40F) and while the heater can most definitely raise the water from an initial 50F to our desired 90F (with the thermal cover on), it really struggled to do so.  It took 5 days to get there (running 12 hours a day) and then it had to run 6-8 hours a day to maintain it.  Unless you have guests and plan on doing a LOT of swimming in Jan/Feb it probably isn’t worth heating those two months in a desert climate like this, but yes it is capable if you REALLY need it.  To be fair, Asa actually did warn me about this so it wasn’t a total surprise, but just be aware if you have similar climate.

It is now mid-February and a different story.  The days (70-80F) and nights (50-60F) are warmer and the heat pump easily maintains the desired 90F, running 2-3 hours a day to make up for the overnight losses (again, thermal cover on).  Based on our high natural gas rates and low winter electric rates, I am saving a lot of money and projecting a 3 year payout on the incremental upgrade cost over replacing my aging gas heater which I had to do anyway.  Also, since it heats so slowly I now keep the water at 90F and we can use it any time, unlike the gas heater which I used only when we wanted to swim (since it heated much faster) and let it cool off in between use, so we found we didn’t swim nearly as much.   In March and April we have more visitors coming and expect to swim every day and it should be even easier to maintain.

Bottom line, after almost three months I am happy with the heat pump and think you will be too so long as you know how it struggles when the air temperature is low and that it heats the water much, much slower than gas… so once you get it to the desired temperature you’ll probably want to maintain it there.  On the plus side, the pool is ready to use all the time so you will end up using it more.


Aquacal Heat Pump review

I received the pump very quickly and in good condition. It was very easy to install. Worked perfectly from the first day. We have an outdoor above ground therapy spa. It needs to be kept at 90 degrees. It is 1700 gallons, so the unit heats very fast. So far no problems.

Lochinvar ERN402 Gas Pool Heater

Posted by Allan Tylka September 29, 2016 Silver Springs, Maryland

I bought a Lochinvar heater with the help of Asa Strong. Unfortunately, when it was installed, it wouldn't ignite because of a defective controller and spark igniter. When I contacted Asa, he got the replacement parts sent out the next day. They were easily installed by the technician and we were up and running in short order. I suppose that with a device as complex as this heater, there are occasional glitched with bad or damaged parts. But the good news is that Asa and Lochinvar took care of the problem immediately and efficiently.

Gulfstream HE150RA Heat Pump

Posted by Michael Strickland September 22, 2016 New Jersey

My gulfstream heat pump is great! I use it for my fiberglass pool. The pool hovers around the 92 degree mark on really hot days. However, on cooler days (80 degrees) the pool remains around 85 degrees. We like the pool in the mid 90s during the day, and high 90s at night. I just got out of my 96 degree pool and it's about 80 degrees outside as fall is approaching. This heat pump has worked really well for us, and I strongly recommend an electric heat pump over a gas heater. You set the temperature and you're done. We've turned our pool into a huge hot tub at night during large parties, (98-100 dregrees) and everyone loved it. We definitely used our pool a lot more than we would have without it. I plumbed the heater in myself, and it was very simple. It took me about 30 minutes to pipe it in with 3" pvc piping. I had an electrician hard wire it to my breaker.

Hi Asa, Took longer than I thought to get everything in place, but our Heat Pump is finally installed and connected. I can only say awesome! Quiet, efficient, heated our 16x32 16,000 gallon above ground pool from 75 deg to 90 deg in less than 12 hours, and so far is maintaining that temp very well. My wife is extremely happy, having that nice warm water to relax in. Like other comments I saw, why in the world did I wait so long to do this?! Thanks for all your support. I'll register the SN when I get a chance.

Morning Asa, Just a quick note to say thanks. The Gulfstream product (model HE150RA) is terrific. The whole process was problem free and enjoyable. Amazingly, received the first utility bill and it did not cause a trip to the E.R., so I'm pleased.  What a great experience... Many thanks

Purchased an SQL120. Initially fan was not balanced so unit was quite loud. Called Aquacal and they arranged for it to be fixed. Process took about 3 weeks but it is working great now. Only minor complaint is that thermostat is off by few degrees. Once I figured that out, no problem, just adjust accordingly.

I would highly recommend Asa and cannot say enough good things about our entire experience! Stellar service!

Asa was amazing to work with. I had called to ask about heat pumps, but at the time could not afford the one we wanted and needed so had to put it off a couple of months. When I emailed Asa to say we were ready, he was right on it and 3 days later the pump arrived. We LOVE our pool and have been in it almost everyday since we got the heat pump. It is also pretty energy efficient as I had the power company out for an energy audit.

Gulfstream HE90RA - Pool Size: 24 x 15

Posted July 5, 2016 New Jersey

Hi Asa, The Gulfstream HE90 works GREAT!! for us it was one of the best things that we did. We have a pool for about 15 years but never got to enjoy swimming in it in the cooler months of the year. Now with this heat pump I have put my pool up to 96? I have a 24 x 15 pool and it heats it up about 2? and hour. One is the pool gets to the temperature that you are comfortable with it I would suggest that you would invest in a solar cover to cover it overnight to maintain the temperature. Please feel free to use my name or give someone my phone number if they have any questions.

Hello Asa,

I placed my order with you on Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday, I received a call from the trucking company to schedule delivery. The heater was delivered Thursday morning. The box was in perfect condition, delivered by a friendly driver from New Penn. By Saturday afternoon, the Pentair MasterTemp 400N was up and running, and the kids were in the pool. I doesn’t get any better than that!


Heat Siphon Z700HP - Pool Size: 24 x 40

Posted June 10, 2016 Bethlehem, PA

Hi Asa,

Got my Heat Siphon up and running (had to wait for my electrician). Seems to work very well ... thanks much for the Heat Siphon recommendation! Also want to mention that I have 1 1/2" piping throughout my whole pool. I had to use 8 90 degree fittings to plumb the Heat Siphon. I bought the piping, but then decided that going to 2" piping for the Heat Siphon was a better plan with all those bends. I took it all back and got 2". It works great. My filter was at 10 without the Heat Siphon and at 11 with it. Just up one number is just great in my book. My old gas heater was plumbed with 1 1/2" piping and had almost as many bends. The number was up a lot more (although I don't know how much heater restriction there was). At any rate, 2" piping has 1.77% more area than 1 1/2" so I'm telling you this so maybe you would recommend it to your customers.

The Gulfstream we selected has proven effective and simple to operate. The online resource to differentiate among models was clear, but the phone call to the company was most informative to me, a person who hasn't made any large online purchases. If you are a person doubting the online process, please do not hesitate. This experience was great! Thanks Asa!!

The heat pump was delivered promptly. Upon installation, it worked great. We had a concern about the fan, but it was handled appropriately by AquaCal. I was apprehensive that the heat pump would be able to warm our pool so efficiently. I was surprised how quickly it heats up the pool. We've only used it a couple months so far, since we close our pool for the winter. I'm looking forward to opening the pool this spring and swimming in warm water earlier than before we had the heat pump. This is the best investment we have made for our pool. I only wish we had done it sooner.

Very happy here in Puerto Rico with my Hayward heat pump. (Yes, during the winter months the nights are cool, and swimming pools can be on the chilly side!) Asa was very easy to work with, and knowledgeable about the different makes/models. He made some suggestions regarding my specific needs, and took care of all the shipping arrangements. I would definitely recommend anyone interested in a heat pump to work with Asa at in order to get the exact heat pump they need at a very reasonable price.

Product was delivered on a pallet with a lot of attention dedicated to keeping it safe. Installed relatively easily to existing piping. Took about 45 minutes. Had an electrician wire the unit to ensure not to void the product warranty. Product works great!

We have purchased two heat pumps from Asa, and have been very satisfied with his suggestions. He has great knowledge of the products he offers as well as an understanding of the variables of each application. Products arrive when he says they will and in good condition. We have one in the Savannah, GA area and one on Long Island, NY. Both function well and have provided the results we were looking for.

Very happy with the customer service experience from Asa. All my questions were answered and I felt confident in my purchase. Been using the pool heater about 3 months and its just what I needed to replace my old one that had gone out. Highly recommend

Do not have a heat pump. Purchased a regular gas heater that was too large (420,000 BTU) for my initial installation. Worked with a service company to get the Lochinvar up and running by putting in a much larger gas meter and opening up the valve for more pressure. The pool season was over before we could use the heater. Looking forward to using it next season.

Gulfstream HE 125RA Heat Pump

Posted by Steve F. Vidam Sept 23, 2015 New Jersey

Hi Asa,  I've been meaning to contact you . I'm very pleased with the heat pump pool heater. After I had figured out the filter to heat pump pipe routing all was well. It took a few days to raise the temp to 82'.We've used the pool from Memorial day till the 20th of Sep . I should have put that heater in years ago. I only had to run the system 8 hours to get it up to 82',then only 4-6 hours after that to maintain it. I knew the electric bill would go up ,but it was worth it.(Approx $80)per month. It was much easier and nicer looking set up than a propane system. No more 68-70' water  . Last year we only used it 4 times, too cold.

I tell all my friends with pools that this is the way to go.
Thanks for all your advise on the heat pump.

Heat Siphon Z575HP Heat Pump

Posted July 20, 2015 - Pool Size: 16x32 Virginia
After talking to several pool owners & dealers I finally decided to purchase a pool Heat Pump in May 2015.  With emailing & later talking with Asa Strong I selected the model I wanted & then also decided to purchase a Salt/Chlorine generator so I could install them both at the same time. After being told by local dealers of a time delay in getting these installed, as a diehard “Do It Yourself” person, I decided to take on the project myself.

It took most of the weekend only because I wanted to install it a certain way & I had to search locally for specific assembly materials which I didn’t have on hand. After the installation I could not be happier that my wife is so HAPPY with it! The Heat Pump (Heat Siphon) heated even more efficiently than we expected & we now enjoy less handling of the chlorine products.

The digital readouts of both devices help to confirm our confidence in how the equipment is operating in addition to being so comfortable and easy to use. We couldn’t be more pleased with how Asa addressed our questions & concerns & we feel he offered accurate information. We have already passed his name & company on to others for their purchase consideration.

Gulfstream HE150 Heat Pump

Posted May 20, 2015 by Michelle Penn Valley, California

Our solar cover brought the water temperature up to 80 degrees, which wasn’t adequate for swimming this cool spring, with average daytime air temperatures hovering around 60-70 degrees. Ordering the heat pump was easy and it  was delivered close to where it needed to be installed. Our heating and air conditioning guy installed the heat pump (Thanks Asa, that was a great suggestion) and after less than 14 hours of running time, we were happily swimming in 87 degree water. With the heat pump operating during the daily four hour filtering cycle, our pool is now at 90 degrees even though the air temperature is still quite chilly at night (high 40s). When we start getting our typical June temperatures of high 80s and 90s, I doubt that the heat pump will need to run much at all, but it will keep the water nice and warm for nighttime swimming.

For over a year I had pestered my local pool company with questions about heat pumps and instead, they kept trying to sell me a propane heater. I called other pool companies in the area and was told that it would take a very long time for a heat pump to work and didn’t I want to buy a propane heater instead? Finally I received a bid, which was much higher than I expected. I was a little concerned because the pool company salesman didn’t know much about heat pumps or how they’re installed.

I was very glad to find and speak with Asa Strong. My husband was getting tired of me trying to talk him into buying a heat pump and finally he gave in when I showed him that the price of the unit Asa suggested was half of what I had been quoted by the local company. My husband was skeptical about how it would work, but now he’s absolutely delighted that he can swim several weeks earlier in the season. I haven’t said, “I told you so” but I’ve been tempted!

Thank you Asa and Mary.

AquaCal SQ175 Heat Pump

Posted April 1, 2015 by Carl Wallace Pell City, Alabama

We are very pleased with our AquaCal Super Quiet model SQ175.  We researched pool heat pumps thoroughly and decided we would go this way based on perceived quality, great warranty, and performance - i.e. we wanted a high capacity heat pump.  It was delivered promptly.  We had a contractor install it for us at a total cost of $400.  It is quiet.  It's getting about 23 degrees cooling from ambient out the fan so when the outside temperature is below about 53 F, it will occasionally automatically go into defrost mode (i.e. self-protecting, which is good).  I've observed it running (with defrost more often) when ambient temp was below 30F.  We live in east central Alabama.  We put the pool in service in mid-March.  Today, 4/1/15 the thermostat is set at 91F and is cycling (no pool cover).  Last year we didn't start swimming until June.  We made the right choice.

Posted February 22, 2015 by Rodney Texas

Asa was extremely helpful and patient with my (almost) endless questions. After only a few days of the heat pump being operational, I can say the Gulfstream unit I bought did exactly as advertised, which was slowly but surely raise the water temperature in the pool to 85 degrees in less than two days starting at 54 degrees. It was glorious swimming in the middle of February, when I usually don't even think about it until the middle of May. And we've been wearing the spa out (or maybe it's the other way around) with the water at 100 degrees. It takes a couple of hours to get the spa from 85 to 100, so you have to plan ahead, but it's so worth it. This heat pump is very easy to learn how to use and seems very well constructed.


You can't go wrong with Westside Pool Service in Fort Worth. Sam really knows his stuff. I doubt they need the advertising here, as they're already well known here in Cowtown. You can reach them at 817.560.0081, or

I can't thank you enough for your help with my new pool heater. My electrician said my bill would go thru the roof. When I spoke to Asa, he said that was not true. Well after my first season the electric bill was nowhere near the estimated cost my electrician had told me. Asa was right. Also delivery of my new heater was on time and installation was very easy. After eight years of sparingly using my cold water pool, except for my boy's who have left home recently, I enjoyed my pool for the first time. I can't wait for springtime.

It took me a long time to purchase my heat pump because I was concerned about not having on site support and how it would work in tandem with my solar heater. My concerns were unfounded. The heat pump was delivered very quickly (within 3 days after ordering). I contracted an electrician and pool technician to install it. Everything went without a hitch and it was up and running in a day. The heat pump was installed after the solar unit and it works great. I am really enjoying swimming in December in San Antonio

hi. am very satisfied with the product and the price.
My pool guy even mentioned to a friend that I bought "a very good quality heat pump"


Posted December 1, 2014 by Dave Hefner  

I ordered the unit at the end of our season so I didn't see how well it heats up but I did run it and all seems well. I did have shipping damage that I reported to the sales person. he is sending a tech out in the spring to have it check for performance damage if any. I was impressed with that level of service. I like the look and ease of operation and look forward to seeing how quickly it heats up next season.


I have extensive piping and electrical experience since I have been in construction for 40 years so I installed it my self. It was a very easy installation. I can get photos if you are interested in them. I landscaped the area and plan to plant small shrubs and flowers near the unit which is beside our pool deck. With the nice looking unit and my excellent landscaping it should look great.

This is a great heat pump - Live in NJ and definitely has worked like a charm. Attempted to keep my pool opened till October ended up closing it Mid Sept. The cold weather was a turn off to even think of jumping in the pool, but I night swam during mid 60s weather and the heat pump kept me in the pool at 87 degrees.  Did not ever want to come out.

I had no idea what I was ordering (really) the man that was installing my pool said to purchase a Hayward heater so I googled it, found one to fit the size of my pool and purchased it. My pool man was very impressed with it!! The controls are very self explanatory and it works awesome!!! Very happy with the purchase!
Also, I had talked to a gentleman (Asa?) who was also very helpful, telling me when to expect the heater and also that I would be getting a call from the driver to set up a time, convenient to me, to have it delivered! BONUS: free shipping!

Asa was the best! From his recommendation of the Gulfstream to his customer service and follow up. Not sure I have ever experienced such a high level of service from anyone anywhere. So glad I found, it was the answer to all my questions and concerns about how to heat my pool. The Gulfstream heat pump was definitely the way to go. Does everything I wanted in a heater and is fast (for a heat pump) and very quiet. Makes less noise than my a/c unit. I am completely satisfied with my purchase and highly recommend and I really appreciated all the help I received from Asa. Thank you for everything.

Want you to know right out of the box we find the Gulf Stream far superior to our old Jandy. The gulfstream is neatly assembled, easy to install and very quiet. Thanks for introducing us to them. They've been supportive, helpful and easy to deal with. Thanks again.

I was very uneasy purchasing this equipment, being that family and friends have a gas heaters. So purchased it and couldn't be more happy. It cost less to run this then a gas heater. My pool warms up usually in 2 to 3 hrs. Its wonderful, I would recommend this to all. Thank you,

Awesome product at a great price!

We were very happy with Asa assisting us on the purchase of our heat pump. My husband contacted him and asked many questions which were answered immediately. He was very knowledgeable. He even called us back in the evening. We would definitely recommend your company to other people. We are very happy with our pump!

The heat pump works great. We are extending our pool season by a two months. My wife really likes the water hot. very satisfied


Posted August 22 by Kristin Marques Massachusetts

The customer service agent we worked with was excellent. He provided us with more information about heating a pool in New England than the 2 other companies we talked to combined. We were totally going down the wrong path and with his honesty we were able to get a better pool heater for only a couple hundred dollars more and it is WORTH EVERY PENNY! We are so happy with our heated pool - and our light bill isn't bad either as he suggested a solar cover that helps significantly.

Heat Pump Testimonial

Posted July 16, 2014 by Jim Zingaro  

My pool is fantastic. The heat pump keeps it at 89 degrees. I only turn it on when we are going in. My kids love it. They say , why didn't we have one of these 20 years ago when we had the pool installed. Thanks Asa for the help.

Heat Pump Testimonial

Posted July 8, 2014 by Lauralee Cashman  

Our Heat pump works great! Our pool has stayed at the temp we wanted and usually only takes about an hour or so of run time per day. It has been a cooler than normal season so far so we are happy with the minimum run times. I installed the water portion of the pump myself and had an electrician run my power. My only issue is the drainage inside the housing as we have a mosquito issue here and there is occasional standing rain and condensation pooling. Other than that, I wish we had bought this when we installed the pool.

Heat Pump Testimonial

Posted July 8, 2014 by John Valentino Texas

We purchased the heat-pump to primarily chill water in our bait holding tank and it is performing as expected at this time. It arrived in perfect condition and was easy to set up and chills our saltwater tanks quickly. The only negative is the temp control system that is difficult to set for cooling and we almost called for help. Finally figured it out, we think and so far that is only complaint.

Heat Siphon

#96 Posted May 2014 by Chris Klohn Okanagan, Valley, BC Canada

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.

While others in our neighborhood had not even opened their pools in May , we were enjoying our pool with temperatures of 86-88 degrees. Turn the heat pump on in the morning and by noon we are ready to swim! My only regret.....I did not contact four years ago when we purchased our pool.

I shopped all over, online and locally. had the best prices and my rep, Asa Strong was exceptionally knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions about selecting the right heat pump for my pool. Got the Aqua Cal delivered to Florida within a few days, and had my local plumber and electrician do the install. Easy to manage. Best part about it is our heated water. I've kept it at 91 degrees, and the kids are no longer shivering in the water! Our pool can now be used year-round. A real lifestyle improvement for us. Josh L.

Pump works fine. Cuts on and off as water temperature changes, which we like, rather than running all the time. Once the temp is reached it cuts off. We like that.

Heat Pump

Posted April 10, 2014 by Lou Marinelli  

This process was simple and fast. The pool heat pump was shipped immediately and at my door earlier than I would have expected. Asa was extremely helpful in answering my questions and making sure the order was right. He verified my pool size and expectations. I installed it right away and even through this cold spring I have been able to get the pool to 87F every day. I have a 15000 gal pool. I don't use a cover and the pump ran about 8 hours a day to keep it that warm. Even with all of that running time it only added about 100 to my electric bill.


Now that the temperatures are more normal it runs about 2 hours in the morning to get it to 87F. Next fall I will have a cover and I expect this heat pump to keep my pool comfortable and extend my swimming season for very little cost. I would recommend this heat siphon. It is an amazing pump. I don't have one issue.

Asa helped me by asking a few questions to narrow down my selection to a few that would best suit my needs. I am happy with the choice I made and the heat pump runs great. Looking forward to an extended swimming season this year!

They were so patient and professional. They really know your products extremely well. Their concern and guidance gave me the help and confidence to purchase and easily install the pump without any problems. It was evident to me that they were there wholeheartedly to help me. I am 71 years old and have dealt with many customer service people over the years and never experienced such dedicated people. They are the best. Kudos to Gulf Stream and

Posted April, 2013 by Gene Heiter Sparkill, NY (Rockland County)

Just want to drop a quick note to say thank you for your suggestion of the Heat Siphon Heat Pump. It's installed, wired, plumbed and now operating after opening the pool this weekend (18X36 in ground) and it is working wonderfully. It heated the water from 59 to 80 degrees in less than 30 hours, and thats with the ambient outside temperature between 45 and 72 degrees. I expressed concern about the noise level of such a large unit and you were correct, the noise level is quite low. Much lower than I expected. Thanks for actually calling me back after requesting information through your website, and for saving me a lot of money with your suggestions. Thanks again to you and the rest of the office.

Asa was my contact. I accepted his recommendation and ordered the heat pump. It arrived quickly, in good condition and was a breeze to install. So far I have run it for only 2-3 hours, but it raised my pool water temperature 2 degrees in short order. I will be raising the pool temperature to 85 degrees for the spring school break when my grandchildren arrive for a weeks visit.
