Heat Pumps and Gas Pool Heating

Sunbather is a National Dealer of the Rheem Gas Heating & Heat Pump Range.   Just like Sunbather products, Rheem is made & tested right here in Australia to suit our conditions.

ACCENT HEAT PUMPS simply draw energy from the air and transfer that to your pool water using an electrical compressor, used to extend your season beyond the normal 6-8 month solar swimming season.  So naturally heat pumps work better in warmer climates and are generally not suitable to the cooler states of Australia.

RAYPAK GAS HEATING is primarily used for heating domestic spas and commercial swimming pools due to its reliability of heating in all weather conditions.  Coupled with a solar heater and a pool cover, Gas Pool Heating will give you a great year round heating package in the cooler states of Australia.

Ensure you consult Sunbather to get the right advice on which pool heating package is best for you.  We can easily work with your pool builder in terms of design & recommended solutions.
