A heat exchanger is used to obtain the most economical installation for swimming pool, Koi pond and solar heating. It is linked to a standard boiler so that heat is supplied and transferred to the pool via the heat exchanger when it is not required for the house.
Your heat exchanger should be sized according to your swimming pool capacity, situation and boiler output. The stainless steel heat exchangers are manufactured in 55, 100, 130, 170, 230 and 460 thousand B.T.U. maximum output. This is a 170,000 BTU Heat Exchanger - click here to see the full range.
These heat exchangers all have a pocket incorporated at the top of the unit into which the probe of the thermostat can be inserted to sense the pool water temperature and maintain your selected pool temperature. If you would rather locate the thermostat sensor probe elsewhere, a stainless steel pocket can be supplied which can be installed at any point in the pool return line. Please note that a thermostat and separate pocket are not included, we recommend the Certikin Digital Thermostat (see related items below).
The advantage of a stainless steel heat exchanger is the lack of any subsequent maintenance, in addition, the compact design takes up very little space when wall mounted.
Not suitable for saltwater pools.
