No, It has a heating element that will heat up when you run the pump (Both must be a seperate circuits, w/ nothing else on them, and separately grounded) the pump will need a 15 amp breaker, the heater will need a 20 amp breaker
It could, if the tub holds no more than 35 gallons water and you wire it as the directions show
You need to consult with the tech dept of the manufacturer
You have to check the owners manual
did it work before, if you tried to adjust the setting it may have internal "default" settings- I have had mine for 4 years w/ no issues, take it back to HD if it still new
It is designed to energized when the pump is turned on
NO. This works well on a tub. It can maintain an already hot tub but can't warm a cold tub so I doubt it would be able to handle the volume of an above ground pool.
You need to follow the manufacturers instruction
So I’m kind of confused one American Standard person says this is made in California the other China, so which is it?
This won't heat cold water. It will warm up warm water eventually and keeps hot water hot. I checked and it maintains our tub at 102 Deg F.
