Waterco has introduced a new compact model in its Electroheat heat pump range.

The new Electroheat MKIV heat pumps combine compactness and high performance to effectively heat both spas and domestic pools. The compact design also allows greater installation flexibility.

Adam Shelley, Zane Solar & Heating Manager observes that the Electroheat MKIV certainly packs a punch as it does not sacrifice performance in its small form factor. This heat pump model is suitable for a wide range of heating applications from two-person spas and swim spas to plunge pools and domestic pools.

The Electroheat MKIV incorporates dual coil titanium heat exchanger technology, which provides greater surface area for increased heat transfer performance. Titanium offers total protection against erosion and corrosion, and is resistant to chlorinated water, ozone, iodine, baquacil, bromine and salt water.

Built with ozone friendly R410A refrigerant, which is environment-friendly and also improves performance, the Electroheat MKIV heat pumps are available in 12kW, 15kW, 19kW and 23kW models, all operating down to 10°C.

Designed for ease of use and maintenance, Electroheat MKIV heat pumps incorporate an LED control panel featuring a continuous digital pool temperature display and a self diagnosis system. In the event of a problem, the control panel will display diagnostic error codes.

Key features of Electroheat MKIV heat pumps include high density dual coil titanium heat exchangers that provide longer life expectancy than standard copper heat exchangers; compact dimensions of 117cm (W) x 32cm (L) x 69cm (H); scroll compressors for quiet, powerful and energy efficient performance; weather proof cabinet constructed of heavy-duty UV-resistant ABS body panels highly resistant to rust, corrosion and deterioration; auto defrost control to reduce frost on the evaporator; auto pressure switch to shut down the system in the event of no water flow; high/low pressure refrigerant/ auto reset to shut down the system in the event of high/low refrigerant pressure; and compressor protection via a time delay allowing the refrigerant to equalise before the compressor starts/restarts.
