The only heat pump that allows you to maximize the potential savings of a variable speed pump is an AquaCal®, which utilizes our patented ThermoLink® Heat Exchanger technology with its unique flow characteristics.

• Patented hydraulic design adds only 2 PSI at 45 gpm, increasing compatibility with two-speed & variable speed pumps
• Saves money when using a variable speed pump by reducing the RPM needed to achieve the same flow rate
• Save money in a single speed pump application by reducing the run time needed to achieve the same turnover rate of the pool

Corrosion Proof Cabinet  

• Louvered side panels protect evaporator coil while ensuring efficient air flow
• Rust and fade proof
• Impact resistant
• Built-in drain pan provides condensate management

Microprocessor Controlled  with Digital Display

• Weather protected control with full text display provides easy-to-read menu options and unit status
• Ability to connect to most external controllers for heating and cooling mode
• Most common variable speed pumps can be programmed using the heat pump Smart Controller (HP9) or (HP11)

  1. Jose Gutierrez

    I have had a SQ155AHDSBTM since 2014, and it os still working great after almost 7 years, it warms up great, my only issue was a control (screen) failure but was covered under warranty without any issues. This is the best brand in the market, totally recommended. When I ever need another heat pump, I would only go with AquaCal.

  2. Ray Lang

    3rd year on my Aquacal heat pump and I love it. Very quiet, heats fast 22,000 gallon pool. 1 degree per hour. Didn’t have any issue on it. This is a great product for us!

  3. Terry Barnett

    Update to previous email. The company took care of all issues with the heater AND IT HAS BEEN WORKING GREAT FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS.

    UPDATE / The company has taken care of all issues and the heater has been working great for the last 2 years. It heats up quickly and is quiet.I did purchase the extended warranty because of the initial problems we had. After the initial problems it has been trouble free.

  4. Bobby

    just had a 36×48 unground pool installed. The heater has been on since thursday and the temp is set for 86. But the temp on display has not gotten above 76 degrees. not sure what to do.

  5. Kim

    Have the same issue as other people. Display shows code ota, apparently it’s an over temperature alarm. Not sure what is going on because the water is barely 70 degrees. Can’t get ahold of anybody because it’s the weekend. Some people work during the week. 😕

    • AquaCal Customer Service

    Product worked well for a little then had to replace screen module… now it registers water at 103 but it’s only 65 so it won’t turn on to heat.

    • AquaCal Customer Service

  7. Terry Barnett

    Bought a SQ120 IN 2014. Started making a loud noise after about 6 months. Took several repair trips to fix. Now its takes 12+ hours to heat 5 degrees.Very disappointed in this heater. Live in FL. where it is warm….

  8. Jessica Gutierrez

    This heat pump works great!! It heats about one (1) degree per hour, it does consumes about 7.5 Kwh in case you’re wondering, I wish it would be a little more energy efficient, but all the other features and the way it heats up the pool is great. I have a 12,000 gal pool and it heats it up to 86 degrees in about 3-4 hours

  9. fpalazo

    This thing is awesome it heats the spa really quick and hardly makes any noise at all, If I did not feel the water the only way to tell if it is running is to walk over and see if the fan is spinning. I would defiantly purchase again!!
