How Does It Work?
A pool heat pump works similar to an air conditioner, but in reverse. The process begins by transferring any available heat from the outside air into the Gulfstream heat pump unit. The four sided evaporator coil, or ribbed “fins” that wrap around the perimeter of the unit draw this heat from the outside air. This heat is then introduced to R410A liquid refrigerant and pushed through a compressor where it gets super heated. The heated refrigerant then passes through Gulfstreams exclusive rifled titanium heat exchanger. Your pool water then passes over the titanium tubing with a rushing, turbulating effect in the “tube in tube” configuration. ALL of the pool water is exposed to the super heated titanium tubing, which heats the pool water to your desired set point. It then flows back into your pool and you can begin enjoying and relaxing in your comfortable, heated pool.
