How To Install a Hayward HeatPro Heat Pump

Apryl owners is Rob with inyopools.com

some of you keep in mind you're gonna

install it yourself is typically the

manufacturers will offer a longer

warranty if you get it professionally

installed for instance that the Hayward

Heat pro it has if you install it


it has a two-year warranty on parts and

when you're on labor but if you get it

professionally installed it's five years

parts and when you're on labor and in

some states actually has two years on

labor too so check your warranty and

determine if that's not you want to do

yourself but but that being said let's

get started all right today we're going

to be replacing the existing heat pump

so the electrical work has already been

done if you're installing a brand new

heat pump you don't have an existing one

done it needs a 60 amp breaker so you

might want to call an electrician have

that all done before you attempt to

install the heat pump with that being

said let's go ahead and turn the power

off and get started all right we're

gonna turn it off here at the breaker my

first thing we're gonna do is go ahead

and loosen the nuts on the old heat pump

alright we're gonna open up the service

panel so we can gain access to the

electrical wiring in here that way we

can disconnect the the wiring and then

remove the heat pump

alright we've got the wires unhooked so

we're gonna feed it out or the conduit

adapter all right we're gonna disconnect

the bonding wire alright now we're gonna

go ahead and slide back the old unit

all right couple things you want to

remember when you're installing the heat

pump as far as location goes is the heat

pumps are made to be installed outside

you don't want an enclosed area like a

shed or garage because it's it needs to

be able to take in warm air and it

pushes out cold air so if it's an

enclosed area you're just gonna be

pushing out that cold air and sucking it

right back in so that doesn't make it

very efficient next you want to mount

the unit on a sturdy base preferably

concrete or blocks the base should be

isolated from the building to prevent

sound or vibration transmission into the

building alright last thing to keep in

mind is that air is pulled in through

the evaporator coil and discharged at

the top and so you want a minimum

clearance of 72 inches above the unit as

well as 24 inches to the side of the

unit so it'll allow good air intake and

service access now we're gonna do some

prep work for the plumbing right now

we're gonna do a little bit of trenching

so we can get more access to the to the

pipes underground you don't have a whole

lot of room okay we've got it trenched

out now and we're gonna make some cuts

so that we can align the piping with the

intake and return on the heat pump

alright the couplings that come with the

Hayward heat Pro are actually located on

the inside of the source panel so you

got to do is just remove the three

screws at the top here and also the

anchors are in here as well

see got a couple eggs and the anchors

right there all right we just slid it

into place

now we're gonna line it up with our

pipes juicer cut and gluing before you

start plumbing you'll notice that on the

bottom here the inlet and return are

labeled on the right-hand sides as water

in that's gonna be coming from your pump

to your filter and then into your heat

pump and then on the left-hand side as

the water out so it's gonna be coming

out maybe into a chemical feeder and

back to the pool so make sure those are

correct for you do your plumbing





all right we've got it all plumbed in so

the next up is gonna be wiring it so

we're going to remove this service panel

earlier we took the three top screws off

to get the to get the unions so there's

two more at the bottom so remove these

and take the cover off around this

particular installation we're not

connecting this heat pump to any kind of

automation but if you do have automation

and you wanted to control this heat pump

you'll connect it to this terminal block

right here the external terminal block

and then you know obviously run that

back to the automation I would recommend

checking the manual for your control

system to see how it's going to be

connected to your box okay there's a

knock out here at the bottom that's

where we'll connect our conduit so we're

just punch that out there you go it's

the spot for our conduit okay we're

gonna head and feed the three lines here

you get two hot and a ground feed that

through the knockout there

okay so we've got the lines fed in here

into the heat pump so then you want to

open this door and there's a knock out

down here you can feed the wires through

alright and once you got them in here

you're gonna connect one of these red

ones hot lines to l1 and the other one

to l2 and then your green line is going

to go to this green screw in here around


close it back up yeah I'll move the

panel in place and connect those five

screws all right the last step here is

gonna be bonding the heat pump basically

anything metallic around the pool you

want to make sure it's bonded so no you

know you don't get shocked with any kind

of stray current it's just a

preventative measure but basically you

just take it here and just tighten it

down and then on the opposite end you'll

connect it to another bonding wire from

the system with a split nut all right so

we got the electrical hooked up and

we've turned on the pump so the next

thing is we're going to turn on the heat

pump and the fan should immediately

start and then after about three to four

minutes the compressor will start and

when the compressor starts running there

should be a heat indicator light on the

right-hand side here

and the compressor just kicked on and

now you can see the flames up in that

upper right-hand corner

all right we got the heat pump installed

everything's looking good the

installation wasn't too bad but you

probably wanted to definitely have some

experience with plumbing and electrical

work if you're going to do this and if

you're at all uncomfortable with it call

professional with that said if you have
