Propane Pool Heaters

When people think of propane outdoors, most think of gas grills, and that is a popular use of propane, but propane is a highly versatile fuel. Did you know you can use propane to heat your pool? It may be blazing hot outside, but that pool water might be ice cold. A cool, refreshing dip is probably what you’re looking for, not an ice bath. Keep the temperature exactly where you like it with a propane-powered pool heater. Using a propane heater for your pool offers a number of benefits:

  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Durable
  • Eco-friendly
  • Highly efficient


Using Propane to Heat Your Pool

A propane pool heater simply burns gas to warm water from the pool pump then cycles the water back into the pool. That’s why propane pool heaters are an ideal choice for in-ground and above ground pools—and spas too! Propane heaters are less expensive than their electric counterparts and can reach and maintain the desired water temperature more efficiently.

Propane pool heaters have several advantages over other types of heaters. With electric heat pumps, the pump pulls heat from the air to warm the pool, which may not get the water as warm as you’re expecting, and heating would take much longer. Solar pool heaters require a system that’s equal to at least 50% of the pool’s surface, and the pump, which is electric, must run for the heater to work, possibly raising your electric bill. Propane is an easy, hassle-free way to get your pool heated fast without breaking the bank.
