Jiang,
Questions posted here are welcome.

I talked to Carl at the Pool & Spa Works in Seattle about this question. Pools spas are different than water heaters in these ways.

Smaller, more compact.
Venting is different.
Higher BTU for 30-40 gallon per minute flow.
More cost efficient heating.
Can be outside in the rain.

Carl likes the Purex Minimax 100, which is a 100,000 BTU unit that sells for $999.00 and comes with a chimney.
He also sells a Raypak 55,000 BTU unit that sells for $760.00 plus $50.00 for the chimney.
