The Ruud 156 is the perfect choice for
larger above-ground pools, spas and inground pools. The 156 has up to
50% more BTU's than the competitors' above-ground pool heaters. More
BTU's means quicker heat-up. Extend your swim season, open your pool
earlier and close it later. Your pool is always ready when you have a
Ruud on duty.

PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating
The Ruud gas heater has a
polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than
solvent-borne and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet
metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder
paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish
you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and
years of durable service
No need for fans to combat drafting problems
under normal conditions. This heater is designed to draft naturally in
outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile design. It is so
thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually protects itself from the
things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters. It delivers
uninterrupted heating performance regardless of falling leaves, wind,
airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc.
Prevent rust stains from harming your pool or spa’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure.
All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger
The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each
made from a single piece of extruded copper. This integral-fin design
allows maximum heat transfer to be attained and maintained. Ruud also
uses thick stainless steel tube sheets for robust construction and rust
The 156 is available standard with Ruud’s
propriety AFT digital control. This control handles all the safety
functions of the heater as well as the electronic ignition and flame
supervision. State of the art diagnostic reporting and fault recording.
This is the same control we use in our bigger gas pool heaters. Only the
best will do for the model 156. The electronic ignition system requires
external power (120VAC or 240VAC) and generates a pilot only when there
is a call for heat. Units come with a 3 foot, 3 prong power cord.
2” Water Connections
Supplied with every Ruud 156 heater is a set of 2" flange connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
The Ruud 156 comes standard with a built
in water bypass so it can handle different GPM’s without having to
adjust your flow rates manually. The bypass also helps keep a constant
engineered flow through the tubes to help reduce condensation caused by
Every burner tray is built to last, from the
stainless steel burner deck to the aluminized metals used in the heat
sensitive areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of the
tray for servicing.
A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your heater running efficiently
while keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age material
the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowing
it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.
Energy-smart Ruud heaters consistently achieve the highest
efficiency ratings. They meet or exceed all federal and state standards
Available for natural gas or propane.
Please note the Ruud model 156 is not designed to meet the emissions regulations in areas requiring Low NOx levels.
Reduce input 4% for each 1000 feet above sea level when installed above 2000 feet elevation.
