A Hi Temp Titanium Swimming Pool Heat Pump uses electricity to operate. They are actually a form of solar heater, as the sun-warmed air contributes to the efficiency of these units. This heat is extracted from the air, upgraded with a compressor, and then transferred to the water.
For those who enjoy swimming regardless of the weather, a Hi Temp Titanium Heat Pump is the best option available. It is also the preferred method for therapy or athletic trainers, and also when a home is not “solar feasible” (i.e. solar will not fit on roof.) A Hi Temp Titanium heat Pump, when properly sized, can maintain any desired pool temperature between 28 and 35 degrees centigrade, regardless of outside weather conditions. A Hi Temp Titanium heat Pump will work when the outside air temperature is above 8 degrees centigrade.
Due to their high efficiency, Hi Temp Titanium Heat Pumps have a low cost of operation. Typically, for every 20 cents of electric input, you receive R1.00 worth of heat. This is due to the coefficient of performance.
Why Heat My Pool?
You bought your pool for a number of reasons like family fun, exercise, entertaining and possibly even therapeutic reasons. However you’ve probably found that without heating your pool it’s often too cold to enjoy. Heating your pool will allow you to enjoy it all season, perhaps all year round, thereby increasing the return on your sizable investment.
Longevity and Maintenance
Hi Temp Titanium Heat pumps will typically last between 10 to 15 years or more. Because heat pumps are a mechanical device with many moving parts, they require periodic service by an A/C technician.
Choosing the Right Type of Heating System
There are two basic types of pool heating systems: Solar, Electric Heat Pump. Deciding which system is best for you and your pool is determined by considering the factors below:
- Water temperature desired
- Swimming season desired
- Geographic location / climate
- Spending plans / project budget
- The size/shape of the pool, plus shading/wind factors
- Cost of operation

Note: General temperature calculations are based on a 10°C temperature within 84 hours based on a wet bulb temperature of 19°C. Should the wet bulb temperature fall lower that this running times will change. Heatpump efficiency is affected by ambient temperature. The lower the ambient temperature the lower the kw rating. Actual heatpump running times vary depending on above variables.
HOW DOES A HEATPUMP WORK?
Instead of removing the heat from inside a house and dumping it outside, heat is removed from the outside air and transferred to the swimming pool water via an exchange mechanism.
“Air Source” Heat Pumps utilize the sun’s free heat by collecting and absorbing energy from the outside air. This energy is then compressed and transferred to the pool water.
Your existing pool pump circulates the water through the heater and warms the pool. The FAN circulates air through the outer EVAPORATOR AIR COIL that acts as a heat collector. The liquid refrigerant in the air coil absorbs the available heat in the ambient air transforming it into a gas. The refrigerant gas is then pumped into the COMPRESSOR. When this warmed gas is compressed, it intensifies or concentrates the heat like a magnifying glass in the sun. This intensely hot gas is then pumped into the HEAT EXCHANGER CONDENSER where the actual heat transfer takes place.
As the pool water passes through the heat exchanger, the hot gas gives up its heat to the cooler pool water. The refrigerant returns to a liquid state and is pumped through the EXPANSION VALVE then into the evaporator air coil to start the process all over again.
