AquaCal TropiCal 115 Pool Heat Pump
For mid-sized and large pools, the AquaCal T115 pool heat pump from the TropiCal line is a highly-ranked unit. At 112,000 BTUs, the T115 is designed with a large and corrosion-resistant evaporator to improve efficiency. The computer-automated defroster kicks on in cold weather and prevents frost build-up, and the vinyl-coated fan grill is resistant to rust and other types of corrosion. The ThermoLink heat exchanger is made from titanium and can also resist corrosion from all types of harsh pool chemicals.

BTU: British thermal unit. A BTU is the measured amount of heat output the unit will produce. The BTU output will vary with the ambient air temperature and humidity levels.
COP Coefficient of Performance = KW out/KW in; KW in = KW out/ COP.
The higher the number, the less electricity used. The coefficient of performance of a heat pump is the measured ratio of kilowatt usage compared to the kilowatt output. The greatest value a heat pump provides a pool owner is to deliver a warm pool or hot spa at the lowest possible cost of operation.
Heat pumps are available in single or three phase units.
A Three-Phase or Multi-Phase heat pump has 2 or more speeds with a high and low setting.
A single-phase heat pump has one setting for cooling and heating. Single phase heat pumps cycle air at one speed and may take longer to heat depending on the temperature.
