The SuperQuiet adds no noise to the equipment pad, and at 10 feet away you
can’t hear it running at all, it’s virtually silent. Utilizing a heat pump
gives you the ability to heat a pool for about 25% of the cost of heating it
with gas. This provides better ability to heat your pool for the entire swim
season and not just as is needed. The heat pumps that AquaCal produce have a
life expectancy of 12 to 15 years so you can heat your pool rain or shine and
worry free as well as they virtually have no effect on your carbon footprint.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
A heat pump does not actually burn energy to create heat. It
only relies on a small amount of that energy to transfer free heat from the
surrounding air to your pool water. Essentially, a heat pump is a mechanical
solar energy collector.
The fan draws air through the evaporator, an incredible 85%
of the heat that goes into your pool is collected here. The air that is cooled
down is then ejected out of the top of the machine. Located on the front of the
machine, there’s a port where the cooler pool water comes in and another port
where the warmer water leaves and goes back into the pool.

Why Should I Heat My Pool?
There’re many benefits
of heating your pool. These include maximizing the enjoyment of your swimming
pool investment. Exercise, relax, swim, and entertain in warm water that is
comfortable for everybody. Extend pool season, even when there’s a chill in the
air. Also, don’t forget about warmer water being good for issue like arthritis,
and muscle aches, etc. Using a heat pump gets you more quality time with family
and friends overall. Who wouldn’t want that?
How Can AquaCal Heat Pumps Help You?
AquaCal uses their patented ThermoLink® Heat Exchanger to
reduce the cost of operation by reducing the resistance to flow. Don’t be
tricked by heat pumps that have a lower initial purchase price as they
typically have significantly higher operating costs eliminating that price
difference fairly quickly. These AquaCal heat pumps take advantage of using a
variable speed pool pump by reducing the RPMs needed to achieve the same flow
rate (pump affinity laws). The heat exchanger actually allows AquaCal heat
pumps to operate on speeds as low as 1560 RPM compared to other pumps who have
to run over 2350. This truly is a significant reduction, saving the pool owner
anywhere from $25 to $94 per month when a variable speed pump is being used.

Exchanger makes the unit a stand out along with corrosion proof cabinets,
microprocessor controls, off-set plumbing, louvered side panels, impact
resistant, flip-out control panel protecting against the elements as well as
having the ability to lock the controls so others can’t change the temperature.
Self-diagnostics, a patented counter-flow water management system and a
The SuperQuiet SQ145 includes all of the standard features.
It utilizes the ThermoLink patented Titanium Heat Exchanger making this unit
extremely efficient that’s built to last. It has corrosion proof cabinets,
microprocessor controls, a scroll compressor helping with quiet operation as
well as off-set plumbing. Louvered side panels protect the evaporator coil and
ensure efficient air flow. The unit is rust and fade proof while also being
impact resistant. There’s a built-in drain pain helping to manage condensation
and an Air Flow Vectoring Top which helps to protect the internal components
from debris and weather. The control panels can also lock ensuring that no one
else is able to change settings or the desired temperature. The unit has the
ability to run self-diagnostics, has a counter-flow water management system and
comes with a great lifetime warranty.
The newly redesigned SuperQuiet SQ225 comes with many
standard features including the patented ThermoLink Heat Exchanger which really
makes this unit a stand out performer. Coming with corrosion proof cabinets, a
scroll compressor for quiet operation, microprocessor controls, and offset
plumbing. The heat pump is capable of self-diagnostics with a display that’s
easy to read and flips in and out for protection against the weather. This
control panel also is lockable so unauthorized people can change the settings
or temperature. Louvered side panels assist in protecting the evaporator coil
ensuring efficient air flow. The whole thing is rust and fade proof along with being
impact resistant. Also coming standard is a built-in drain pan and an Air Flow
Vectoring Top that protects internal components from weather and debris while
ensuring optimal air flow.
