You must look for how big your pool is to make sure you buy only what you need and make sure the heater has a warranty.

Heaters are usually plumbed in after the filter. The pool filter/pump is what circulates the heated water. Ans: The heater will not work or fire if the pump is not running.

Until the desired temp is reached, or you want to maintain the desired temp, a pool heater is going to run and consume gas.

The heater will not operate if the pump is not on.

I always left the solar cover on the pool except when I was swimming in it. The solar cover provided enough heat so I did not need to turn on my heater. If the heater pushes the solar cover aside, remove the solar cover from that part of the pool.

Do you mean a pool that has a salt water generator? If so, any pool heater could be used.

it depends if you have a pool heater

Yes, a salt-water pool is the same as a Chlorine pool, therefore a heater is safe to use on a salt generator. There are two things to look out for with a heater: 1) pH can wreck havoc on the heater core, so always maintain a proper pH level in the pool and 2) the heater will release more metals into the water over time than a non heated pool. With a heater I always recommend a sequesting agent (I.e. metal control) on a weekly dose. Other than keeping your salt levels up around 2000-3000 ppm and proper water balance and care, you should have no problem! Russell Recreational Aquatics Specialist

At a minimum you would need a 400K btu gas heater. This pool is larger than a 20 x 40' pool or 800 sq. ft. Many things dictate the size or sizing of a pool heater such as the surface area of the pool, the size of the gas line from the meter to the heater, the distance of the run from the meter to the heater, the size or capacity of the gas meter, etc. Proper sizing is a must if your heater is to run at optimum standards.

Use the link below to look at a Laars manual to see if one is included.

You can buy a swimming pool heater in the Burlington, Vermont are at Leslie's Pool Supplies. They have a great selection.

The direction of the pool circulation: within the pool; water should circulate in a counter clockwise direction. Starting at the skimmer, water travels from the skimmer to the pump (the pump is what makes everything work like the heater etc, from the pump to the filter, thru the heater, thru a chlorinator if you have one , back to the pool.

The swimming pool heater service usually takes about 1 to 2 hours. This of course can change if you have a larger heater.

Approx 4.4 gallons per hour on full blast.

My heater to heat my 18 X 40 pool (30,000) gallons takes one hour per degree. I have a 250,000 btu heater.

Your gas pool heater should have a BTU/hr rating for input and output printed on a placard somewhere on the heater. Look for the input rating and divide by 100,000 to get Therms/hr. Assuming your gas is being billed in dollars per Therm, just multiply that rate by your Therms/hr. to get dollars/hour. Multiply this by how many hours you run your gas heater and that's your total pool heater operating cost. Also take in account the time of year temp and wind. If your heating your pool to 78-85 degrees and your pool water is 60 degrees that would be an 18-25 degree temp rise. Your pool is exposed on all sides and this will bleed heat off quickly. It may never achieve the temp desired or not shut down and always call for heat.

Ideally within 15 feet to minimize heat lose from the pipes.
