of energy and fuel economy are extremely important—and an efficient
pool heater can achieve, both.
eliminating wasteful heating, a heater can quickly pay for itself.
For example, all Teledyne Laars/ Jandy heaters are equipped with a
sensitive thermostatic pool temperature control. It maintains the
pool at the exact temperature desired without wasteful, long on-and-off
cycles of heating and cooling.
corrosion and scale are the elements that deteriorate pool heaters
fast. That’s why we make our sturdy 1-piece heater jackets rigid
and strong, with single-seam welding and a new longer lasting, weather
resistant coating that resists corrosion and ends flaking of finish.
Our heat exchanger produces a scouring-action water flow that virtually
have a salt-water pool. Any special problems?
Salt water is highly corrosive, and a heater must be equipped with
a special heat exchanger and other features to handle it. Teledyne
Laars/ Jandy heaters designed for salt water use are available on

with Teledyne Laars/ Jandy. Everything you need for convenient, efficient
operation is part of the heater package. In our gas-fired models with
pilot light, included are such features as the Visoflame pilot lighting
device that puts the pilot where it can be seen for fast checkout
and easy lighting. Series 2 model ESC heaters have an electronic temperature
controller which provides two separate temperature settings for the
pool and spa modes of operation. This model also has electronic intermittent
ignition for even lower operating costs.
my pool heater require much maintenance?
if it’s a Teledyne Laars/ Jandy. Usually, one maintenance inspection
a year is sufficient to keep your heater working efficiently. Maintenance
is largely a preventive measure used to safeguard your heater’s
working condition. The ruggedness, corrosion-free construction and
long-lasting finish of our heaters combine with simplicity of engineering
to keep maintenance minimal.

important is the reputation of the manufacturer. Teledyne Laars/ Jandy
has been standing behind its products for more than 40 years.
is the reputation of the manufacturer so important?
two reasons: The quality of your heater and the protection of your
investment in it. Teledyne Laars/ Jandy is the oldest and world’s
largest gas pool heater manufacturer, with more heaters sold than
all other brands combined. This is the result of engineering leadership
that includes pioneering the first pool heater... the first stack-less
model... the first line of heater to be fully approved for outdoor
use... the first high-velocity flow-through tubes for heat exchangers...
and the first truly compact oil-fired heater.
leadership is sustained by a large national organization of distributors,
dealers and technicians. Paramount Pools has been a dealer for over
long should a heater last?
heaters wear out in three or four years, but Teledyne Laars/ Jandy
heaters normally last a lot longer. A product life of 10 to 12 years
is not uncommon. Heater failure is usually the result of some outside
cause—not normal usage—provided it has been properly maintained.
we add a heater later, after our pool is built?
Although a Teledyne Laars/ Jandy heater can be added at any time,
it should be included from the beginning, just as a heating
system is installed during the construction of a home. This means
greater convenience for you and less installation cost. When you include
a heater in the beginning, it costs only 6% - 10% of your pool investment
and usually gives you 100% more enjoyment from your pool. If the heater
is not installed when the pool is built, provision should be made
for a heater stub-out in the return water line, and space or a concrete
pad should be provided for future installation. (continued........)
