Pentair UltraTemp heat pump pool heaters are designed to heat and maintain a set temperature for your pool water. Heat Pump pool heaters operate similarly to a home heating and air conditioner system, you set a temperature and the unit works to get you to that temperature and then maintain that comfort level.
Once you have decided to add a swimming pool or spa to your backyard, not much thought is given to heating it until your pool heater needs to be replaced. When it comes to heating the pool water you want the most economical solution. Using a heat pump system to heat your water is environmentally friendly and economical. Pentair uses non-ozone depleting refrigerant and uses a titanium heat exchanger for durability and corrosion-free long-lasting performance.
For the ultimate in temperature management, the Pentair UltraTemp system includes AutoSet Temperature Control. AutoSet turns the pump on and off, monitoring the water temperature. Its function is to override the time clock to maintain your set pool temperature. Additionally, an adjustable timer allows for you to set the heat pump to run for a set amount of time. It is incrementally adjustable by 10 minutes up to 99 hours.
The Pentair UltraTemp Heat Pump Pool Heaters are available in Almond and Black. A properly sized heat pump is essential to give you the utmost efficiency. With a properly sized heat pump system, your pool water temperature should rise approximately 1°F/hour. We offer units with various BTUs/COPs to accommodate your pool size needs. COP (Coefficient of Performance) is the standard AHRI rating given to pool heaters. It reflects the efficiency with which the heat pump exchanges and transfers the hot outside air into heated pool water. Pentair UltraTemp units rate between 5.7 and 6.0 on this scale at the If you are unsure of the size heat pump you need, a good rule of thumb is approximately 4 BTUs per gallon of water to be heated. Of course our sales staff at Total Home Supply are also available to help you.
A pretty simple calculation can be used as a way to size the BTUs needed for your pool. Length x Width x Desired Temperature Raise x 12 = Recommended BTUs. In other words, if your pool is 16 x 30, and you need to raise the temperature from 65°F to 80°F, your calculation would be 16 x 30 x 15 x 12 = 86,400 - or approximately a 90,000 BTU heat pump pool heater. The UltraTemp 90 would be the correct size heat pump pool heater for your situation. This pool would take about 15 hours to reach your desired temperature of 80°F.
Additional features of the Pentair UltraTemp Heat Pump Pool Heaters include:

- AHRI and Intertek ETL US Certified
- Compatible with Pentair remote automation systems, giving you the opportunity to control your unit from an interior control panel
Using a heat pump pool heater gives you the opportunity to heat your pool and maintain that temperature everyday with little additional energy expended. Since a heat pump pool heater depends on the ambient air to heat your pool water, use of a heat pump is recommended when your seasonal temperatures are above 50°F.
