The sleek and stylish Raypak Digital Gas Pool and Spa Heater features innovative technology designed to keep your pool or spa at the perfect temperature for your enjoyment. Built to withstand various weather conditions, this modern pool and spa heater is the perfect solution for environments requiring efficiency, convenience and versatility.
Thanks to a brilliant low-profile design, corrosion resistant cabinet made of galvanized metal, copper fin tube heat exchanger, and a bevy of advanced-engineered materials, enjoying your heater year round is a breeze.
Electronic Ignition
Raypak Digital heaters come standard with intermittent spark ignition pilot safety controls. What this means is that the pilot only comes on when there is a call for heat. This is a more energy efficient way to control you heaters gas usage by not having a standing pilot. Raypak has been using the same reliable electronic pilot ignition design for over 20 years.
Microprocessor Controlled Thermostat
The Raypak Digital gas heater comes with a microprocessor based thermostat control. This control allows you to set your pool or spa temperature precisely at your favorite setting just by pressing an up or down temperature control button. The Digital display gives you a constant read out of your pool water temperature. Just set it, and forget it! Truly simple.
Self Diagnostic
Troubleshooting a gas heater has never been easier. The Raypak Digital has on-board diagnostic controls that let the user and the service professional know what is going on with the heater at all times. In the event that you would ever have a problem with the heater, the digital display will show where the problem is in the control circuit. It's like having a service technician built into every heater!
Remote Compatible
The Raypak Digital is compatible with most major pool control and remote systems on the market today. Any two-wire or three-wire remote can connect to the Raypak Digital and be integrated into the pool control system of your choice.
Built-in Wind Resistant Design
The Raypak Digital has the best outdoor design in the market today. With over 50 years in designing and building gas heaters, Raypak has put all that experience into its newest heater design. No need for fans to combat drafting problems, the Raypak Digital was designed for outdoor installations with its exclusive low profile design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters: falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc. In fact it is so efficiently designed it ensures uninterrupted heating performance regardless of all but the most extreme weather conditions. Built Raypak tough. Built to last.
Smart Design
One look will tell you that the Raypak Digital is different! The look is contemporary. The design is advanced. And inside and out it's engineered to last. The attractive forest green and charcoal gray panels complement the latest pool and spa equipment designs. Raypak's original "pagoda top" design will keep the heater operating even in extreme wind conditions and downdrafts
Polytuff Powder Coating
The Raypak Digital has a polyester coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solventborne and waterborne coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal that gets powder coated goes through a 7-stage wash system making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough and beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service.
Polymer Header
The Raypak Digital incorporates the latest in header design technology. Raypak's state-of-the-art engineering department utilized the latest in 3-D computer aided design to engineer the part for optimal performance. Polymer resin headers prevent rust stains from harming your pools surface giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure
All Copper Fin Tube Heat Exchanger
All Raypak Digital gas heaters come standard with integral copper finned tube. This means that the fin tubing is made from one piece of extruded copper tube. Since the fins are integral to the tube, maximum heat transfer is attained. Every Raypak Digital has the same robust design tube bundle that we use in our large gas commercial boilers.
Stainless Steel Tube Sheet
Stainless steel tube sheets are used on all Raypak Digital heaters that use the Polymer resin headers. This allows for a completely nonferrous waterway leaving your pool truly rust-free.
CPVC 2" Water Connections
Standard with every Raypak Digital is a set of 2" slip fit CPVC water connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
Condensation Protection
Standard on all Raypak Digital models is Raypak's Unitherm Governor, which helps reduce condensation from low inlet water temperatures. The Unitherm Governor automatically regulates the water flow to help keep the water temperature in the heat exchanger above 105 Degree F. Both water temperature and water flow rate are controlled to eliminate condensation, sooting, and scale buildup that can shorten heater life.
High Flow Rates
No need to worry about large pumps or high flow systems. The Raypak Digital comes with an automatic bypass built into the header. You'll find that the Raypak Digital delivers the industry's lowest pressure drop and highest water flow rate - up to 125 gallons per minute - exceeding the maximum recommended for 2" plumbing systems. More hot water moves through faster and more efficiently.
Fuel Efficient
Efficient? You bet. Energy-smart Raypak heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings and the Raypak Digital is no exception. It exceeds all federal and state standards.
Burner Tray
Every Raypak Digital burner tray is built to last. From the stainless steel burners to the aluminized metal used in the heat sensitive areas. In the event that anything should happen to your burners they can be quickly and easily serviced. One more reason why the Raypak Digital is made to take the work load year after year.
Fire Tile
A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your Raypak Digital running efficiently and keeps the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age material the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowing it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.

What size heater do I need for a 16,000 gallon pool?
Ray B on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The size needed will ultimately be up to how fast you want to heat it up. The larger the BTU the faster it will heat. This should heat your pool up fine.

Hi , I live in Houston TX and I have 9000 galons inground pool . How big of a gas heater do I need to heat fast and economical ?
Ovi P on Oct 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The fastest would be a 400K btu heater but you really wouldnt need that. A 266K or 336K should be fine. But the higher you go the faster it will heat.
I have a 15,000 gallon inground play pool , how big a heater do i need ? 220
A shopper on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine is an above ground pool that has 13.000 plus gallons. We are running the 200 (206?) btu on natural gas. We had a 150 btu heater originally. I only have 3/4" line into the heater (which should have 1") but my heater guy said that as long as you are under 100' of run to the meter (we are about 75') it would be fine... and it has been. I could not be happier with this heater. At the end of the year, I pull the two drain plugs, leave them inside the heater - vacuum it clean and cover it - no worries about pilot lights running all winter long or shutting off the gas to the heater. In the spring, start the pump and the heater clicks twice and boom... heat. My old heater was gaining .5 degrees per hour when running, this one is roughly 1.25 degrees per hour - like clockwork - and this makes it very simple to decide on how long to run the pump to heat the pool to full temps. We love our Raypak!

Can this unit be vented to run in an enclosed pool house?
A shopper on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be vented for an indoor application. You just need to purchase the vent kit with the pool heater.
