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!

Ordered by Simplicity & Robustness:

- Astralpool (Hurlcon) ICI Series
- 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
Pentair / Waterco / Sta-Rite
Mastertemp 125, Mastertemp 200, Mastertemp 300, Mastertemp 400
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.
