Thanks to its induced draft system, the Hayward H100ID1 is capable of working just fine in windy conditions as well, so you can enjoy a warm pool regardless of the weather! Furthermore, its one-piece copper heat exchanger ensures a leak-free performance
time and time again. Also equipped with jet-ported Eugenox burners for durability and maintenance-free performance, the H100ID1 definitely deserves a spot next to anyone’s spa or above ground pool.
Where Can It Be Used?
Similar to pool pumps
, certain pool heaters are better suited to certain locations than others. If you live in the western U.S. or anywhere above 2,000 feet, this isn’t the pool heater for you, because it’s specifically designed for use below 2,000 feet above sea level.
How It Works
While it’s important to note that the Hayward H100ID1 is designed for small to medium-sized above ground pools under 450 square feet, it’s capable of heating pools of this size within three short hours. With a thermal efficiency of 81 percent, you can simply turn it on and enjoy a steamy spa or warm above ground in no time at all.
As mentioned with good reason a few times throughout this review, the Hayward H100ID1 is only suitable for pools under 450 square feet in size. However, it's more than capable of heating pools up to this size to a comfortable 85 degrees, which is plenty warm for most people. Unfortunately, if you have a larger pool, you will likely find yourself disappointed with this 100,000 BTU pool heater.
In comparison to other pool heaters, this Hayward model is relatively inexpensive
. Although it’s definitely not the cheapest pool heater out there, it’s a competitively priced option that performs well and is capable of adequately heating most moderately sized pools. Due to its small size and BTU output, the Hayward H100ID1 is also more energy efficient
than most pool heaters on the market today.
Like all brands, not all of Hayward’s products are a home run, but the company typically makes quality products that just plain work. Although the H100ID1 is only designed for a limited number of pools and isn’t the most expensive or durable
pool heater around, it actually works quite well.
If you have a pool larger than 450 square feet in size, you’ll probably be better off going with a larger model. That being said, this Hayward is relatively affordable, easy to use, and works great for small pools, making it one of the best 100,000 BTU pool heaters on the market today.
