Sta-Rite SR400HD Natural Gas Pool Heater
Running a pool each summer is a big investment, and it can be frustrating when the summer weather isn't everything we hope it will be. Cool days can prevent your pool from ever warming up during the summer, leaving you with a pool that is too cold for your family members to enjoy. When you add a heater to your pool, you have more control over the duration of the season - opening earlier, closing later, and enjoying late-evening swims.
The Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm heater has been specifically designed to perform in saltwater pools, providing a comfortable swimming experience each and every day of the summer.
Why choose the Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm Natural Gas Pool Heater?
If you have a saltwater pool, or if you're considering making the switch in future, it is important that you choose a pool heater that has been designed to handle the different water chemistry in salt water. Though high-salt water feels more comfortable for our hair and eyes, the high salinity is actually very corrosive for pool equipment, and can destroy a heater that was intended for a traditional chlorine pool.
This natural gas pool heater has been designed with a special cupro-nickel heat exchanger that can withstand high-salt pools, and provide all of the longevity and efficient service that you'd expect from your pool heater. The Max-E-Therm heater is extremely efficient, providing affordable heat that far exceeds safety standards.
One of the best things about the Max-E-Therm heater is how compact and low-profile it is! Anyone who is low on space or looking for a small heater will love how small, yet powerful, this Sta-Rite model is.
Affordable and Compact Pool Heating
If you're on the market for a new heater for your pool, be sure to consider the Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm heater. This powerful, low-profile heater is strong enough to warm a pool up 20' by 40, while maintaining efficiency standards that keep your costs low. This summer, take more control over when you open your pool, close your pool, and how comfortable you and your family can be each day with the Max-E-Therm heater.
