Looking to buy a new gas pool or spa heater?

Very Important Information

Gas heaters are not a cheap investment. Understandably, our first instinct is to try and find the cheapest possible price. Unfortunately, this comes with a few problems when it comes to gas pool heaters. We try our best to go well on price, but our knowledge, advice, and support are bar none in the pool and spa industry.

 

About Us:

We are made up of a Hurlcon / Astralpool Research & Development Engineer, Raypak Service Technician, Boiler Engineers, Pentair Service Agents, Zodiac Service Agents, Dega Engineers, and more.  We know pretty much all brands of gas pool and spa heaters, inside and out! 


We also cover warranty and service issues directly.  All spare parts available. We carry almost all spare parts in the Service Vehicle, so where possible, we can get it up and running on the first visit.


We've seen so much disappointment from customers who have bought purely on price. It just doesn't go well in the end. We are here for you, and hope that you will be a customer of ours for many years.  We're not a typical pool company, and certainly are the "fly-by-night" type of shoddy seller so often found online.


When Buying a New Gas Pool or Spa Heater:

Please be aware that Astralpool, Hurlcon, Raypak, Zodiac, Hayward, Pentair, Waterco, Sta-Rite heaters are not allowed to be sold Online via Shopping Carts, eBay, Gumtree, at all anymore.  Anyone selling online is NOT an Authorized Astralpool / Hurlcon Dealer, and this can affect your warranty.  We have actually seen "new" heaters sold online, where parts had been swapped with cheaper parts, and even heaters that were NOT new. Please, for your own sake, avoid these shoddy sellers.  Astralpool / Hurlcon will ask for Proof of Purchase from an Authorised Dealer should any Warranty Issues arise.  


Buying a heater via eBay, Gumtree, or elsewhere online can cause warranty issues, bad advice, and major headaches if the heater has any problems. They are also almost never actually qualified to carry out any work on the heaters, and don't know how each component works. 


An Added Benefit of Buying or Servicing from us:

We are Authorized Dealers & Warranty Service Agents for the major brands. Should any issue arise, we can handle issues directly! Should an issue arise, we sort it out far more quickly than any of the manufacturers. In fact, the manufacturers call us to get jobs sorted faster than they can!


For every heater we fit, we also include the first Annual Service for free!

Pentair Mastertemp Gas Heaters

image67

Pentair Mastertemp gas heaters are identical to Waterco Turbotemp and StaRite Max E Therm heaters. Our biggest concern is when the manifold leaks, it can fill the entire combustion chamber with water. This often destroys the heater.  Also the mild steel manifold bolts can easily be too rusty to remove.  


We only recommend these heaters where nothing else will fit.  We are a factory-trained Pentair repairer.


Models: Natural Gas or LPG   

Mastertemp 125 - Output : ~29kW     

Mastertemp 200 - Output : ~46kW     

Mastertemp 300 - Output : ~69kW     

Mastertemp 400  - Output : ~92kW
