ELIZABETH, NJ (November 3, 2014) Hayward® Pool Products has expanded its Universal H-Series gas heater line with a new 500,000 BTU heater featuring the fastest speed-to-heat capability in its class. The 500,000 BTU heaters, available for both residential and commercial applications, set the standard with industry-leading hydraulics, exceptional performance, energy efficiency, planet-friendly low NOx emissions, reliability and value via the industry’s only “standard” Cupro nickel heat exchanger.

The new Universal H-Series residential models -- H500FDN (natural gas) and H500FDP (propane) -- and commercial ASME models -- H500FDNASME (natural) and H500FDPASME (propane) -- provide unprecedented efficiency and value, according to Bruce Aubrey, Hayward Product Manager – Heat Technology. “The Universal H-Series heaters are ideally suited for both new construction and aftermarket applications. The speed-to-heat of our new 500,000 BTU models will appeal to pool professionals and pool owners – especially when you consider the combination of just two models will produce a million BTUs of heat.”

Aubrey added that the relatively small footprint of Hayward’s new heater means easier installation and maintenance, which is particularly important in commercial pump rooms.

Features include:

  • 500,000 BTU input for fast  speed-to-heat performance
  • Standard Cupro nickel Finn Plate™ heat exchanger for  superior product value and reliability
  • Patented header bypass design results in the ultimate hydraulic efficiency and reliability
  • Polymer and low lead bronze (commercial ASME) header for excellent corrosion resistance
  • 83 percent thermal efficiency for energy-efficient performance
  • Universal design independent left- or right-side electric, water and gas connections ensures the easiest and  most versatile installation
  • 2" x 2½" CPVC unions and plumbing fittings
  • Commercial ASME SKU’s include pressure relief valve as standard
  • Commercial 500,000 BTU ASME SKU’s include Pressure/Flow Kit as standard
  • Electronic lock-out feature prevents unauthorized access to configuration settings
