A word about what your pool guy might say on warranty, installation and other things...
(per Marcus Miller)
"Your pool guy is not licensed or able to service your heat pump once it is installed.
You need an HVAC refrigeration person for that.
So, the same heat pump that I get you, or your pool guy gets will be serviced by the same someone that the manufacturer sends out. As a product owner you will contact them to register your product with them and start a service call if there is an issue in the future.
You will have a manufacturer's customer service number to assist you with trouble shooting, questions, or you can always call us at anytime.
All the manufacturers know who I am.
Most of the head engineers from all the companies know me too. I have a lot of cell phone numbers. Some for 25 years.
When I call a manufacturer they are very motivated to take care of my customer. They will not know who your pool guy is.
The installation for most heat pump is to glue 2 water pipes and call a licensed electrician to finish the hook up.
It is not rocket science. Very easy.
And I'm always around to answer any questions.
We want you to save money and we want you to be happy with a properly heated pool"
