In response to Re: Gas Water Heaters for Spa
: I have to replace an old non-working Teledyne Lars water heater for an 800-gallon wooden spa (hot tub). I have received two bids, both offering to replace it with a Raypak heater. However, several plumbers have mentioned to me that the Raypak just does not compare well to Teledyne Lars (comments like 'buying a Volkswagen to replace a Lexus'). The Raypak bids are for 155,000 and 185,000 btus. I am not so concerned about the btus, as I am about the manufacturer and the quality of the equipment. Do you have any recommendation or experience with these brands, or, is there a way for me to obtain a more specific/analytical comparison? Thank you.

Contact Teledyne Lars at the web site, and ask them for an analytical comparison for the Raypack and three other units with their unit. Ask them to mention service, warrantee, quality, available, and price comparisons. Also ask them if they sell to other LICENSED persons in your area from whom you can obtain competitive cost estimates.
