operation. Within the case is a high quality titanium heat exchanger that is compatible with salt electrolysis and the silver welding piping guarantees reliability and prevents gas leakage. Engineers will be pleased to note that the electrical system is located on the top side to allow for easy access when servicing. Super quiet and super efficient: Heatinverter Plus promises smoothness of operation with extended life expectancy.


THE COMPAC RANGE JUST GOT BIGGER! The Compac heat pump range has a new larger Compac 12 alongside the Compac 6 and 8. The pump uses 1kW of energy to generate approximately 4kW of energy. Featuring a titanium heat exchanger, heat is transferred to


efficient and cost effective. The low energy consumption coupled with high heat production makes a Compac heat pump an environmentally friendly way to heat a swimming pool. The Compac requires no fuel storage tank or high capacity electrical supply and produces no


smells, fumes or CO2 gases. Like the rest of the range, the heat pump must be installed to allow adequate airflow to and from the unit. It comes with a two year limited warranty and comprehensive UK support.


NIRVANA DEVELOPS PUMPS ESPECIALLY FOR THE NORTHERN CLIMATES Nirvana Heat Pumps produced in Canada are manufactured to exceed market expectations.


The range is now available through Port Talbot based Total Water Products and the trade saw the partnership together at the recent SPATEX exhibition.


Nirvana Heat Pumps now available through Total Water Products


Nirvana insists on a high quality technical support and back up to customers, along with its extensive warranty programme. The range meets all market requirements. Nirvana Heat Pump specialises in the conception, development and manufacturing of products that use thermodynamic technology including pool heat pumps.


More recently Nirvana has designed a new generation of heat pumps with the northern climate in mind. The performance of the units at low temperatures (HSPF – heating season performance factor – Index) gives, says the company, a strong competitive advantage.


the pool water from the ambient air using a vapour compressor cycle similar to that found in a refrigerator.


Users pay only for the cost of electricity to run the motor inside – the heat that is absorbed from the air is free, making a Compac heat pump


Nirvana also claims one of the industry’s lowest noise levels, less than 60 decibels compared with the average 70 to 90 decibels. “Noise reduction has always been a major concern at Nirvana and a number of our technological breakthroughs are


“In my opinion the big factor now for swimming pool companies is to be able to offer back up, support and quality of machine. This hasn’t been there apart from a few noticeable exceptions and I think the whole market is losing face”


Compac 6 and 8 heat pumps from Certikin will be complemented by a new larger Compac 12 model


effectively eliminating noise pollution and making life much easier for the people buying our heat pumps,” says the company.


ZODIAC ACCREDITED BY FRENCH GOVERNMENT


Zodiac PSA have been designing heat pumps in France for over 30 years, cumulating in sales last year exceeding 15,000 and accounting for half of Zodiac’s business worldwide.


With so many different heat pumps now available on the market, it is increasingly difficult, particularly for the end user, to compare true performance and output.


Zodiac’s flagship ‘Power First Premium’, made in Italy, was the first heat pump to be accredited under the French NF Government standards for performance within specific parameters, i.e. air 15°, water 26° and humidity 70°. “This rigorous, independent testing,” explains Daniel Phillips of Lighthouse Pools, “is your quality assurance guarantee. It is obvious that a clear set of standards for measuring the output of heat pumps would benefit both the trade and its customers in the UK.”
