Elecro Vulcan Pool Heaters

Please use the below instructions to ensure you order the correct size of heater for your pool then click here to make your purchase...

Step 1:
First of all you will need to know the volume of the water in your pool. This information will be on our pool description page or in your pool owner’s manual.  Once you have this information view the chart below which indicates which pool heater would be necessary for the water capacity of your pool.

Step 2:
Electricity can be provided via a single or 3 phase system.  The single phase system is much more common.  However you can purchase a 3 phase system from your electricity supplier. You will need to check what amperage you have in your home.  As you can see from the table below the differing heaters require different amperage.

Step 3:
The Vulcan heaters are also available in analogue or digital control.  The pool temperature can be set on the heater using a panel-mounted thermostat dial in the case of the analogue model and in respect of the digital model by using the touch buttons, resulting in the temperatures being displayed on the LCD screen. You can select this from the drop down menu at the top of the product description screen. Please

Things to be aware of when purchasing an Elecro pool heater

  • These heaters require wiring to the property's main consumer unit - Similar to the way your electric oven is connected on its own circuit
  • Installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician
  • The installation costs for the heaters is not included in the price of the heater

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - How long does it take to bring a pool up to temperature?
A - Assuming no heat losses, and a heater sized in the ratio 1.5-kW per 1000-gallons of water: it will take 2 days of continuous running to raise the temperature of a pool from tap temperature to swimming temperature. Heat loss will slow the process particularly during periods of cold weather, i.e. the higher the temperature is to be maintained above average ambient air temperature the slower the heating process will become. The main influencing factor being the level of heat retaining insulation incorporated in the pool shell.

Q - Can I plug my heater in via a standard 3-pin plug?
A - Heater sizes 2-kW and 3-kW can be plugged in via a standard 3-pin domestic plug. Heater sizes 4.5-kW and above require wiring to the property's main consumer unit - the same way a shower or cooker is normally wired. To check the power consumption of your heater please see the tank label of the heater (located on the heaters flow tube)

Q - How much will it cost to heat my pool?
A - Assuming the cost of a unit of electricity to be 6 pence it will cost £4.32 to heat 1000-gallons (4500-Litres) of water from tap temperature to a reasonable swimming temperature. This equation makes no allowance for heat loss.

The cost of maintaining the water temperature will be dependant on the level of insulation given by the pool structure, a moderately well insulated pool being used only during summer months may only require 3 hours of top up heat on average per day. At a cost of 27 pence per 1000-gallons (when the heater is sized in the ratio 1.5-kW per 1000-gallons). The religious use of a solar floating cover could dispense with the need for any top up heat being required during warm sunny days.

Please note the above information is for guidance only & running costs will vary from pool to pool and will be dependant on the following main points:

  • The Level Of Insulation

  • Water Temperature to be Maintained

  • Average Ambient Air Temperature

  • The Cost of a Unit of Electricity

  • Wind Chill
