The Raypak 106 and 156 are 105k and 150k BTU gas fired heaters for above ground pools. They are available for natural gas or propane but are not low NOx. Energy efficiency is 82%.
Apart from the power levels the only difference between the two models is the controls. The 106 has a simple analog control, you simply set the thermostat dial to the required temperature, whereas the 156 has digital controls. As well as providing an accurate temperature display this also incorporates on-board diagnostics and remote control capability.

Raypak pool heaters are good quality and well liked by users. This above ground heater has a lot of good features so it is a pity that it has not been designed as low NOx. This will rule it out for many pool owners but if you don’t need a low NOx heater it is well worth considering.
