Pool Heaters

RBI’s commercial pool heaters are built to outlast the competition – year after year.

  • Futera Series Pool Heaters
  • Dominator / LCD Dominator Pool Heaters
  • 8800 / 8900 Series Pool Heaters
  • Spectrum Series Pool Heaters

For Faster Heating:

  • For 1½°F (-17°C) rise per hour: Increase BTUH input by 50%
  • For 2°F (-17°C) rise per hour: Increase BTUH input by 100%
  • Always select a heater equal to or larger than the requirement. Oversizing generally reduces fuel cost
