Is it possible to retro fit a water heater to a jacuzzi.

Any one have experience or can recommend a heater.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know how this never got a reply.

Yes, it is perfectly possible to retro-fit a heater to a jacuzzi.
However, such heaters tend to be relatively expensive. It depends on the volume of the pool, but prices start at about THB 60,000.00 for reliable equipment from a good brand. They generally need installing by a genuine professional. Be sure your retailer is able to provide on-going support for these products.

A simple solution of a layman not familiar with jacuzzi:

A hot (warm) water into the jacuzzi to fill in thru a strong bathroom electrical heater available on market in many types. Perhaps some 5 - 6 kW or more if the electrical connection to the house can withstand the current (some 25 - 35 A).

Then after the filling, if wanting to keep the temperature high (or even higher), the heater incomer to reconnect (by a suitable valve arrangement) from the water supply to an outlet from the jacuzzi and with help of a small recirculation pump to bring the re-heated water back to jacuzzi - now really hot - somewhere to the other side of the jacuzzi. This could be organized for ca. 10,000 Baht.
