AquaCal TropiCal 135 Pool Heat Pump
The AquaCal T135 pool heat pump has several features that make it a top-pick among large pool owners. The ThermoLink heat exchanger is designed for maximum efficiency and durability, crafted with titanium to resist degradation. Its evaporator is corrosion resistant and its extra-large surface area is engineered for increased energy conservation. The 133,000 BTUs of power can extend your swimming season for months and combined with an automatic defroster, this pool heat pump can keep your pool warm even when the temperature drops to near freezing. The vinyl-coated fan grill is protected from rust, making for a reliable unit that requires little upkeep.

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.
