What size water connection is the 200k btu unit have ?
A shopper on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 2 inch
I'm replacing a 15 year old Sta Rite Max-E-Therm pool heater. I live in San Diego and would like to know if the Low NOx heater meets all the applicable California regulations. Also, I was wondering if this new heater is a "plug and play" for my present heater (i.e. no repiping, etc.)? Thank you.
Matthew O on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is an easy replacement procedure, it lines up exactly with the old connections.The heater is very efficient and faster heating the water than the old one. I hop this helps, I am very pleased with the product and service from Pool Supply.
Does this unit come with the propane orfice? If not, how much does that cost?
Johnn on Mar 22, 2016
I have a StaRite MaxE Therm 400 that has died. I only heat the hot tub, not the pool. Do I need to replace with the 400 or can I go to a 200? thanx!
h w on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Replacing with same unit simplifies the installation. Becomes a two hour job, no replumbing and assures you of original result. That’s what I did and worked great.
is this heater vented?
terry e on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Heater is not vented. I bought it because I was replacing same brand that lasted 12 years. Same connections and therefore. installed in 30 minutes. Works great.
where can i get the heater repaired?
A shopper on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the problem I guess. Most pool service companies will tell you if they can handle it or not.
They are not complicated pieces of equipment.
Mine stopped working because mice lived there in the winter. Not good.
Ate wiring everywhere. Wiring insulation for several years was made of soy and mice loved it.
Fortunately it is all color coded so I was able to reconnect. After the third time I gave up. By that time it was 10 years old and deteriorating inside the heating area.

I ended up buying the EXACT same unit on-line to minimize the replacement installation cost.
Took 30 minutes to replace and works perfectly again.
The mice are probably happy too.
went outside and the heater is running no controls turned on blowing cool air out the exhaust is this normal ?
jerome c on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. May be best to call the company. They would know right away.
is it possible to lock the operating controls? My pool heater is accessible for anyone and I need to be able to restrict operation.
A shopper on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. Check with mfg. i dont think so.
What needs to be fixed if leaking from the bottom?
Tdyrness on Aug 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Disconnect and remove Heater from systems. (Not as hard as it looks) Also make sure the input and output connections are tight. The water is under pressure. Does it leak when the filter is running only.
You need to get underneath and check all the fittings. Retighten as needed. If it is a new heater that may be all that is needed. If it is old then be careful. You can also leave things connected and remove the covers and snoop around with a flashlight looking for wet spots or leaks.This is probably what you want to do first.
Heaters are not that complicated if you are afraid to investigate yourself.
Can this be used on an above ground pool?
liz M on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
Just bought a house with a hot tub.
Inherited a Sta-rite heater.
The push buttons to turn it on and get it working do not work.
Is this a mother board problem?
Rick P on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Are you getting power to it? If not, I'd check the circuit breakers for it first, before going inside the unit. If you're getting power (display lights but nothing else) you'll need to get inside.
what size heater for 18000 gallon in ground pool ?
A shopper on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend a minimum of 200,000BTU.
need codes for heater when it will not come on?????????/
Bill C on Mar 21, 2016
