3. What size heat pump do I require for my pool?
Please use the chart below to select the best SunSpring heat pump model for your pool
Max Pool Volume
However please note that these are the maximum sizes.
You should always oversize a heat pump, so we recommend that you choose the next model up in the sizing chart.
If in doubt about the model required for your pool, then please contact us and we will be happy to assist
How to Calculate Your pool Water Volume
You can easily calculate the water volume in your pool as follows:-
To calculate the volume of a round pool, you can use the formula
Pool Volume = 3.14 x radius x radius x depth
- Measure the diameter of the pool in metres
- Half the diameter to give the radius of the pool
- Multiply 3.14 x radius x radius x pool depth
A 12′ (3.66 m) diameter round above ground pool with a depth of 0.8m
Diameter = 12′ x 0.305 = 3.66m
Radius = 3.66 / 2 = 1.83m
Volume = 3.14 x 1.83 x 1.83 x 0.8m = 8.4 m3
The SunSpring 5kw supports pools up to 12m3 so would be OK for this pool, as we always allow a 20% difference in the pool volume in the pool and what volume the heat pump can cope with.
We always recommend going up in size when choosing a heat pump (where possible) as the results will be far more satisfactory, especially if you are located anywhere north of our location in Essex. All our sizing is based on the South of the UK outdoor air temperatures and any difference to this equation will make a huge difference to performance of the heat pump, and the results that you feel in your pool.
Pool volume = length x width x depth
6m x 4m pool, 0.8 m deep = 6 x 4 x 0.8 = 19.2 m3
5. Easy to Operate
The SunSpring swimming pool heat pumps have a user friendly colour digital display panel
The display panel has three buttons for easy operation
The display has a unique water flow indicator scale to instantly show the water flow rate through the heat pump so that you can be sure that it is sufficient.
The display shows the current pool temperature and the set temperature.
6. Fitted with UK or Euro Plug
All of our Sunspring heat pumps are fitted with a UK 3-pin 13A mains plug/RCD.
We can also supply them with a 2-pin euro plug on request
|Comes with UK 3-pin plug/RCD (shown above)||Optional Euro 2-pin plug/RCD shown above (available on request)|
If your outdoor socket is already protected by an RCD, then if you prefer, the fitted RCD/Plug can be unwired and replaced with a standard UK 13A plug.
Note: The Sunspring heat pumps require a 230v, 50hz power supply and therefore are not suitable for use in the USA/Canada (which uses a 110v, 60hz power supply)
7. Hose and Solid Pipe Connections Included
The SunSpring models come with hose tails to take both 1.25″ (32mm) and 1.5″ (38mm) flexible hoses.
They also include the connectors for 50mm and 1.5″ solid pipework

17. Bypass Kit
If you do not plan to drain your pool in winter, we recommend using a bypass kit.
