POOLS AREN’T CHEAP, But . . . in a few hours and for a fraction of your original investment, you can install a HEAT SIPHON & enjoy your heated pool anytime rain or shine. While your neighbor’s unheated pool is empty, you and your family and friends swim in warm water for 3 to 5 months longer every year at the lowest cost possible. No children with blue lips, no excuses for having a pool party, just warm water fun when you want it. Just think of the added family fun, the comfort of warm water for the youngest to the oldest, early morning laps or a late evening dip. Using proven, reliable and highly efficient heat pump technology, HEAT SIPHON saves you money EVERYDAY without burning any costly fossil fuel. And it's environment friendly too!

SIX Good Reasons to Own a HEAT SIPHON®: A spillover spa requires fast heat to bring the spa temperature up from the swimming pool temperature that is usually 78 to 86 degrees F, to spa water temperature, that is usually between 96 to 104 F.




1. IT SAVES 24/7- 85°F ($3.00/Day) - 
HEAT SIPHON is the most EFFICIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE type of Pool or Spa Heater made, PERIOD. A 3.25HP Model HEAT SIPHON will MAINTAIN 85 °F in a 15' x 30' pool in PORTLAND,MAINE or  MIAMI,FLORIDA for as low as $3.00 per day based on US Dept of Energy Cost Data.
Let us size a HEAT SIPHON for YOUR POOL. We'll email you a FREE POOL HEATING ANAYYSIS OF YOUR POOL WITH YOUR FUEL COSTS. Just click on the SHOW ME SAVINGS Tab above and fill out the simple HSA request form.
2. FOR YEARS - HEAT SIPHON will keep on saving because it's CORROSION PROOF. With an electrically isolated Titanium heat exchanger, PVC cabinet, stainless steel hardware it is BUILT TO LAST with designed in longevity using PROVEN RELIABLE HEAT PUMP TECHNOLOGY- it will DELIVER that fuel savings YEAR AFTER YEAR.
3. WORRY FREE - HEAT SIPHON has the STRONGEST WARRANTY in the pool heating industry. LIFETIME heat exchanger corrosion warranty WITH NO CHLORINE LIMITATIONS. FIVE FULL YEARS parts and labor on the compressor - NOT PRO-RATED like other heat pump manufacturers.
4. SIMPLY- SET IT AND FORGET IT - Whether you use the simple TWO BUTTON interface on our NEW Digital HEAT SIPHON or turn the single knob on our PROVEN Analog model, HEAT SIPHON will automatically maintain your pool or spa at the temperature you desire within 1°F - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As long as your pool pump is filtering your pool, HEAT SIPHON is keeping it warm. Swim ANYTIME day or nght, rain or shine.
5. QUIETLY - HEAT SIPHON is quieter than your pool pump with its low noise fan design, sound absorbing vacuum-formed plastic cabinet and noise dampening rubber isolation bushings used to mount the compressor. The Scroll compressors in ALL MODELS generate even less noise by eliminating pistons and valves and using a pair of eccentrically mounted scrolls to compress the refrigerant gas.
6. Environment Friendly - Heat Siphon reduces CO2 emissions by 36 to 46% by moving heat from the air instead of BURNING FUEL to MAKE HEAT like FOSSIL FUEL POOL HEATERS DO!


 


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"

SELECTING Your HEAT SIPHON Model
Take Your PICK:




1. SIZE - 200HP, 375HP, 575HP or 700HP
Choose one of four Heat Siphon HP(BTUH) SIZES for the Heat Output you need by either using the QUICKSIZE guidelines in the chart below

Or Let us do a CUSTOM SIZING using YOUR POOL DATA and Our FREE pool heating/sizing program: CLICK HERE>> Free Pool Heating Cost Analysis
Name Plate Data for All Heat Siphons
2. DIGITAL or ANALOG
PICK YOUR CONTROL SYSTEM- see the ANALOG or DIGITAL web page.
Simple, dependable, no frills single knob 24 volt controls are used on all C Series or Analog models, while the Z Series or Digital models have a sophisticated feature set, LED display including status and water temperature and are wireless ready.
If you want to spend more up front try digital, The Z-Series option may be for you.
POOL SPA COMBO? - you need the DIGITAL for it's DUAL THERMOSTAT and AUTO-PIC features.
The DIGITAL PLAYER Control is much more than a digital Thermometer. (see Analog vs Digital)
3. AC POWER SUPPLY
Virtually all residential pools will use a 220 volt ac 60 Hz (USA) dedicated circuit breaker to supply power to your Heat Siphon. Commercial pools, Condominiums etc and export customer's power will probably require special model designations - see the voltage web page if in doubt.
4. Consider Accessories Purchases
In addition there are several Accessories available for Digital Player plug-in modules such as the Easy-Pic pool/spa automation interface, the Easy-clock plug-in that adds a pump timer control as well as PumpJump time clock over-ride/off cycle heating to your existing Player and hardwired add-ons including the T-POD pump control and the T-POD plus hardwired pool/spa control.
You may want to bookmark this link to Heat Siphon accessories as there will be several new products coming in the near future including Wireless controllers for pumps, pool/spa combo's 3 way valve actuators, water features, Add-on Wireless retrofit kits and more as we introduce our new wireless FOOTBALL FAMILY of products.
REMEMBER - No matter which model you select - Once it's installed the only thing you'll notice is the warm water and the low electric bill.
HEAT SIPHON HISTORY - The first Heat Siphon made was a 3.25HP MODEL with a Piston compressor and the classic Analog 24volt control system. That was in August, 1982. Over 27 years later the Analog Heat Siphon still lives on.

Pick Your Model

First decide whether you will use a pool cover. Using a cover can save you approximately 50% of your heat loss and let you use the next smaller size Heat Siphon - so CONSIDER A COVER. Then follow these guidelines FOR NORMAL CONDITIONS - low wind, no shade, 80°F pool water and 24 hours pool pump operation with an average air temperature above 55°F for swim season. NOTE: IF THESE don't Fit your pool GET a CUSTOM SIZING REPORT
C200HP or Z200HP from 200 sq ft (20 M sq) no cover to 275 sq ft t (25 M sq) covered. C375HP or Z375HP from 350 sq ft (30 M sq) no cover to 650 sq ft (50 M sq) covered. C575HP or Z575HP from 650 sq ft (60 M sq) no cover to 800 sq ft (75 M sq) covered. Z700HP from 800 sq ft (75 M sq) no cover to 1000 sq ft (93 M sq) covered. Pick Classic or High Tech After you make sure you have the right SIZE (HP) Heat Siphon® the rest is up to you. First, if you are on a budget and looking for the most economical model to purchase, pick the classic C-Series ANALOG model we have been making right here in Latrobe, PA since 1983. The C-Series is a CLASSIC. It's a no frills, single knob, set it and forget it pool heater. Simple, Reliable and Old Fashioned BUT HIGH QUALITY!

Installing Your Heat Siphon Heat Siphon® is Very Simple to Install Locate, Plumb, Wire - that's it!!




Heat Siphon® can be installed by any factory authorized pool dealer or pool service contractor. Depending on local building code requirements, the installing dealer may also be able to run electrical wiring to the unit or may subcontract a licensed electrician.


General Installation Info:

LOCATION
Heat Siphon® needs fresh air so it must be outdoor in the open - NO PUMP ROOMS OR SHEDS (for indoor installations call factory) and it should be downstream of the pump and filter and upstream of any chlorinators. DO NOT INSTALL WITH IN FLOOR CLEANING SYSTEMS IN SAME PUMP LOOP.
PLUMBING
Heat Siphon® is plumbed right into your pool or spa filter circulating system just like a length of PVC pipe. AND NO COPPER HEAT SINK PIPES are required. Just plumb standard 1.5" or 2" schedule 40 PVC pipe directly into Heat Siphon®'s heat exchanger (2" requires female adapter fitting). DO NOT INSTALL WITH IN FLOOR CLEANING SYSTEMS IN SAME PUMP LOOP.
WIRING
220 volt ac electric power from a dedicated circuit breaker is the only "fuel" required to power the unit.
CAUTION: THIS EQUIPMENT REQUIRES 220 VOLT POWER FROM A DEDICATED
CIRCUIT BREAKER. ALL ELECTRICAL WIRING SHOULD BE PERFORMED ONLY BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN
ACCORDING TO ALL LOCAL BUILDING CODES.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • MINIMUM OF 25 GPM POOL PUMP WATER FLOW (80 GPM MAX)
  • DEDICATED 220 VOLT AC CIRCUIT BREAKER (ALL Domestic Heat Siphon Models)

WHAT"S NOT REQUIRED:

  • NO PILOT LIGHT TO BLOW OUT AND RELIGHT
  • NO FLAMES OR HOT COMBUSTION GAS VENT STACKS
  • NO DANGER OF EXPLOSION
  • NO GAS PROPANE OR OIL PIPING LINES TO RUN OR BURY
  • NO GAS PROPANE OR OIL TANKS ABOVE OR BELOW GROUND
  • NO COPPER HEAT SINKS TO PREVENT PVC PIPE FROM MELTING
  • NO WIND BREAKS TO SHELTER BURNER FLAME
  • NO UNSIGHTLY SOLAR COLLECTORS
ATTENTION: Do-It-Yourselfers : CALL THE FACTORY TO SEE
IF YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO SELF-INSTALL. Many trade professionals with plumbing
or construction experience have the background.

HEAT SIPHON MUST HAVE THESE TO WORK:

  • LOTS of FRESH OUTDOOR AIR
  • WATER FLOW- 25 GPM or more
  • DEDICATED CICUIT BREAKER

FRESH AIR

As the "How It Works" animation shows, Heat Siphon gets over 80% of it's HEAT FROM COOLING the OUTSIDE AIR that its fan blade pulls thru it's evaporator.

It COOLS DOWN about 5,000 CUBIC FEET OF AIR about 3°F to 5°F EVERY MINUTE!!

This is why you CAN'T LOCATE your HEAT SIPHON INDOORS (except where additional requirements are met see indoor pools ) and NEVER WHERE the exhaust air can RECIRCULATE back into the evaporator.

DO NOT LOCATE YOUR HEAT SIPHON IN THESE PLACES:

  • NOT UNDER A DECK
  • NOT IN A PUMP HOUSE
  • NOT IN A GARAGE
  • NOT INDOORS

25 GPM WATER FLOW

Most 1HP and larger pool pumps with the normal pool plumbing system and number of elbows and fittings will easily exceed 25 Gallons Per Minute of water flow. Typically they deliver 40 to 60 GPM. A 2HP pump can put out 80 GPM with 2 inch diameter PIPE. If in doubt ask your pool dealer or check the manufacturer's specifications for your model pump

DEDICATED BREAKER

ALL Heat Siphon's require their OWN CIRCUIT BREAKER - not a shared one. The MAXIMUM size is listed on your NAMEPLATE


Heat Siphon LOCATION FRESH AIR, WATER and WIRE- BUT NO FIRE!!!




HEAT SIPHON NEEDS THREE THINGS:

The Heat Siphon will perform well in any OUTDOOR location provided three (3) things are present:

  • FRESH OUTDOOR AIR
  • ELECTRICITY - 220 Volt AC
  • POOL FILTRATION PIPING

To avoid the expense of extra pool piping and fittings as well as more wire and possibly a higher cost heavier guage wire, you should locate your Heat Siphon as close as possible to your pool pump filter and your outdoor power center.

OUTDOOR WITH FRESH AIR


Heat Siphon may be installed virtually anywhere outdoors.
Unlike a gas heater it has no draft or pilot light problem in a windy area. Direct sunlight is not a concern since Heat Siphon's cabinet is made of a UV stabilized, flame retardant plastic.
DO NOT place Heat Siphon in an enclosed area with a limited air volume OR where Heat Siphon's discharge air will be re-circulated. OR close to shrubs which can block air inlet.
These locations rob the Heat Siphon of a continuous source of fresh air by causing the colder exhaust air to mix with the air entering the evaporator. This recycling of the already cooled exhaust air cools the air down even further which reduces HEAT SIPHON's efficiency and makes the compressor work harder.
If the space is confining enough the air will drop so low that HEAT SIPHON WILL ICE UP, SHUT OFF AND SHORT CYCLE. Installations such as these will VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
PREVENT RECIRCULATION OF THE EXHAUST AIR - IT WILL CUT DOWN EFFICIENCY.

DO NOT LOCATE YOUR HEAT SIPHON IN THESE PLACES:

  • NOT UNDER A DECK
  • NOT IN A PUMP HOUSE
  • NOT IN A GARAGE or BASEMENT
  • NOT UNDER AN EVE OR OVERHANG
How Close To Your Pool?
Normally, the pool pump and Heat Siphon are installed close together and within 25 feet of the pool.
The longer the distance from the pool, the more heat loss from the piping. Since most of the time the piping is buried, the heat loss is minimal for runs of up to 50 feet (50 feet to and from the pump = 100 feet total) unless the ground is wet or the water table is high.
A very rough estimate of heat loss per 100 foot is 2500 BTU/hr for every 10° F difference in temperature between the pool water and ground surrounding the pipe, which translates to about 3% to 5% increase in run time.
ALLOW PLENTY OF SPACE TO PREVENT EXHAUST AIR RECIRCULATION
Where ever you locate your Heat Siphon make sure you allow plenty of space around it not only to prevent the cold exhaust air from re-circulating back into the inlet but also to allow access space should future service be required.
  • Allow 24 to 36 inches of open area all around the Heat Siphon for good air circulation.
  • Allow 36" minimum for service access.
  • Heat Siphon should be level to help drainage of condensation and rainwater. A standard 1/2inch barb fitting is located on the lower right side of the base pan. Standard flexible tubing will slip right over it to direct condensation away.
  • To minimize noise position the flat side of the unit toward sitting area. This side has the lowest noise emissions.

The drawing to the left shows the size of Heat Siphon's two basic model configurations.

All models have the same footprint (see TOP VIEW)

All 375HP and 575HP models have the same height dimension of 39" while all 200HP models are 31 inches high.

All models have the power connection junction box on the right side of the flat front panel. This right side of the front panel also has the grounding lug and condensation drain both located around the lower right corner.

ALLOW PLENTY OF SPACE TO PREVENT EXHAUST AIR RECIRCULATION AND TO PROVIDE SERVICE ACCESS

Where ever you locate your Heat Siphon make sure you allow plenty of space around it not only to prevent the cold exhaust air from re-circulating back into the inlet but also to allow access space should future service be required.

  • Allow 24 to 36 inches of open area all around the Heat Siphon for good air circulation.
  • Allow 36" minimum space along the flat front face where the two doors are located for service access.

Heat Siphon WIRINGDEDICATED CIRCUIT BREAKER




Just install a circuit breaker in your pool equipment panel and run wire. . .



Heat Siphon has a separate molded -in junction box with a standard electrical conduit nipple already in place.
Just remove four screws and the small cover, feed your supply lines in through the conduit nipple and wire-nut the electric supply wires to the three pigtails already in the junction box. (four wires if three phase)
To complete electrical hookup connect Heat Siphon by electrical conduit, UF cable or other suitable means of the proper size wire (as permitted by local electrical codes) to a dedicated AC power supply branch circuit equipped with the proper circuit breaker, disconnect or time delay fuse protection. Electrical Bonding Electrical bonding is required to a local earth ground (separate from the power supply grounding) through a solid copper conductor not smaller than #8 size. This bonding wire should also be connected to any other pool or spa system electrical equipment.
Heat Siphon has a standard copper bonding lug located on the right side of the unit facing the front panel. Disconnect Means Required For safety reasons, a disconnect means ( fused or un-fused switch or circuit breaker) should be located within sight of and readily accessible from your Heat Siphon. This is common practice on commercial and residential air conditioners and heat pumps. It prevents remotely energizing unattended equipment and permits turning off power at the unit while the unit is being serviced.
NOTE: Although Heat Siphons heat exchanger is electrically isolated from the rest of the unit, it simply prevents the flow of electricity to or from the pool water. Grounding the unit is still required to protect you against short circuits inside the unit. Bonding is also required (see right)



WHAT SIZE WIRE
Your electrician should determine the proper size (gauge) of wire required for your model based on the nameplate specified MINIMUM CIRCUIT AMPACITY, which is the smallest current your supply wire must be safely able to carry. The size will depend on this nameplate amps and the length of wire required. All wiring should be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and all applicable local building code requirements.
Breaker Size
The supply circuit breaker or fuse should be equal to the size specified on the Heat Siphon Nameplate of the model being installed.

Where possible a good quality ground fault interruption (GFI) breaker is strongly recommended at the main power supply for all single phase electrical equipment in the pool system.

Heat Siphon PLUMBINGDIRECT GLUE TO 1.5 " or 2" SCHEDULE 40 PVC




DO NOT USE A BYPASS
Heat Siphon Requires FULL FLOW to 80 GPM

HEAT SIPHON LOCATION: In the pool pump discharge (return) line
  • DOWNSTREAM of your pool or spa pump and filter (no matter what type)
  • UPSTREAM of poo/spal chlorinators, ozone generator or chemical pumps
  • NOT IN SAME PLUMBING LOOP AS ANY INFLOOR CLEANING SYSTEM

Heat Siphon Pool Plumbing



Heat Siphon's exclusive full flow titanium heat exchanger requires no special plumbing arrangements or bypass.The water pressure drop is less than 1 1/2 psi at 80 GPM. Since there is no residual heat or flame temperatures, Heat Siphon does not need copper heat sink piping. PVC pipe can be run straight into the unit. Heat Siphon's Heat Exchanger is ALL PVC and allows you to connect to EITHER 1.5 or 2 inch Schedule 40 PVC pipe pool or spa filtration piping. Both inlet and outlet water connections have a 1.5 inch Inside Diameter for slip (glue) fitting to 1.5 inch pipe and 2 inch male pipe threads on the Outside Diameter to allow connection to 2 inch sch 40 pipe by using a 2" schedule 40 female adapter sleeve or coupler. Both maintain the pipe inside opening all the way into the heat exchanger to eliminate any pressure drop. Give serious consideration to adding quick coupler fittings at the unit inlet and outlet to allow easy draining of unit for winterizing and to provide easier access should servicing be required.
NOTE: NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IN FLOOR CLEANING SYSTEM

Do not install any Heat Siphon in the same pump or plumbing loop as any IN FLOOR CLEANING SYSTEMS. Doing so will void your warranty. Water hammer damage has know to occur when plumbed in the same loop. Especially with a larger pump and 2 inch or larger pipng.

Use a separate pump and plumbing loop for all in floor cleaning systems - they should be independent of the heating piping.


Multiple Unit PlumbingMultiple Unit Installation

The only thing different about installing ONE Heat Siphon vs. MANY Heat Siphons on ONE POOL is PLUMBING. Each Heat Siphon still requires its own dedicated circuit breaker and all of the rules about location and bonding and wiring one Heat Siphon applies to ALL.

There are just four rules for plumbing multiple Heat Siphons:

  • MAKE SURE EACH HEAT SIPHON GETS at least 30 up to 80 GPM of water flow.
  • PLUMB THEM IN PARALLEL - Don't connect the outlet of any Heat Siphon to the inlet of any Heat Siphon.
  • MAKE EACH CIRCUIT the same length of water travel. This will naturally help balance the flow rate to each unit.
  • Where possible put a set of shutoff valves and a flow meter at each unit to facilitate service without shutting down the system as well as comfirming /balancing the flow rate to each Heat Siphon.
  • Following these rules is simple for TWO unit systems but becomes somewhat more complex as the number of units grows. It is still easy if you remember to BALANCE EACH CIRCUIT. That is make the distance the water travels the same for every Heat Siphon from the branch off pipe header back to the collection pipe header

    For example, one of the larger multiple unit installations which is now over ten years old is a community pool in Cranberry Township , PA which has twelve Heat Siphons. The water line supply and return headers are 6" diameter schedule 40 PVC and this branches down to three 4" diameter feeders that supply each of three banks of four Heat Siphons. Each single Heat Siphon inlet and outlet uses 1.5" diameter PVC pipe. The return trip is the same in reverse.

    More Helpful Hints:

    NO BYPASS OR CHECK VALVES Plumb Heat Siphon just like a piece of PVC PIPE. No bypass is required. Location: Connect Heat Siphon in the pool pump discharge (return) line DOWNSTREAM of all filter and pool pumps, and UPSTREAM of any chlorinators, ozone generator or chemical pumps. Condensation: Since your Heat Siphon cools down the air about 4 -10° F, water may condense on the fins of the horseshoe shaped evaporator. If the relative humidity is very high, this could be as much as several gallons an hour. The water will run down the fins into the base pan and drain out through the barbed plastic condensation drain fitting on the right side of the base pan This fitting is designed to accept 3/4" clear vinyl tubing which can be pushed on by hand and run to a suitable drain. Many people have mistaken the condensation for a water leak inside the Heat Siphon. TIP: A QUICK WAY TO VERIFY THAT WATER COMING FROM THE BASEPAN IS CONDENSATION and not a plumbing leak - TEST THE DRAIN WATER FOR CHLORINE - if no chlorine is present, then it's condensation.
