Gulfstream HE125-R-A 122K BTU Electric Heat Pump Pool Heater, titanium
Gulfstream's swimming pool heat pumps feature leading innovation and technology. Gulfstream's smaller company size (compared to their competitors such as Hayward and Raypak) means that they care more about customer satisfaction. Gulfstream's higher standards in manufacturing results in a superior quality heat pump. Gulfstream's state-of-the-art pool heaters are made in North Fort Myers, Florida. Gulfstream is a third-generation, family company. 25 years of pool heating experience gives them deep insight into what customers want in a pool heat pump, and they use that knowledge in the product design and build.

Note that Gulfstream does NOT void the warranty due to bad chemistry, as some other manufacturers do.
Compare that to Hayward's warranty for their HeatPro line of heat pumps: 1 year for labor, 2 years for parts. The compressor's warranty is 2 years for labor and 5 years for parts.

Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")
Q1: What size heat pump should I get for my pool?
Following are suggestions, but should not be used without consideration of the above factors.
Q2: Will a heat pump save me money versus a gas pool heater?
Q3: I've never heard of Gulfstream. Can I trust that this is a good heater?
Buying and using a pool cover is strongly recommended
A pool loses heat from evaporative cooling. That's the cooling effect when water evaporates from the surface of the pool. It accounts for about 75% of a pool’s heat loss. And, a pool cover can reduce the heat lost from a pool by approximately 50%, and directly translates into a 50% reduction in your power consumption. That's a dramatic savings in your fuel bill.
In addition to lowering your energy bill, a pool cover will provide a valuable safety by preventing people from falling in accidentally, conserving chemicals, and reducing the load on filter systems by preventing debris from entering the pool.
Installation Help and Recommendations
Heatpumps only work in warmer temperatures! If the air temperature is too cold, the heat pump will not operate. The exact temperature varies at which the heat pump will cease operating. Weather conditions, the amount of sunlight shining on the heat pump, and the installation quality are the main factors. The shutdown will occur at approximately 50°F (10°C).
