We try to keep every model of heater in stock where possible. Due to so many manufacturing & supply-chain issues due to Covid-19 this has made this impossible. If you're looking for a gas heater, feel free to come to our shop to discuss the various models, as we have tons of experience with them all!

We carry more spare parts for gas pool & spa heaters than anyone in Australia
Below is a list of current gas pool and spa heaters sorted by brand, as well as our own personal experience in simplicity & robustness.
All major brands no longer allow their pricing to be listed online. We are aware that there are some sellers doing so, but they are unauthorised, and this may affect any warranty.

Ordered by Brand:
HX 70,HX 120- Spa Heaters - Super Robust & Simple-design
ICI 200,ICI 400- Pool & Spa Heaters - Super Efficient Combustion & Compact
ICI 200,ICI 400- Pool & Spa Heaters - Super Efficient Combustion & Compact. These are based on the popular Viron heaters, but they removed some components to dramatically simplify the design. Early 2021 had a major design-change, with more safety & diagnostic features added.
Astralpool (Hurlcon) Viron eVo Series
Viron eVo 250,Viron eVo 350 are a bit simpler than the the eVo 450 and require less waterflow & gas pressure. These have had many revisions over the years, and are nothing like the early MK1 models. Early 2021 had a major design-change, with more safety & diagnostic features.
Viron eVo 450- Extremely Efficient Combustion & compact. These require large water flow, and perfect gas pressure to operate efficiently. One of the biggest killers of these is 'ignorant' installation. Many plumbers don't know how to tune these heaters and they never run as well as they could
JXi 200,JXi 370 are very similar in design to the Mastertemp heaters, but with a major improvement in waterflow. They use a mechanical bypass to ensure water flow is sufficient through the heater at all times. This is very important with variable speed pumps.
Super Efficient & Compact. Rotatable top. Must have perfect Gas Pressure, Water Flow, and Water Balance. When manifolds leak on these, due to corrosion, the combustion chamber can fill with water, destroying the heater.
