1. To be used with a pool assembly of the type including at least one pool pump, and at least a swimming pool, a self regulating pool heater unit comprising:

  • a power source,a refrigeration unit, said refrigeration unit being structured and disposed to emit heat so as to heat a quantity of fluid being cycled therethrough by said pool pump,said power source being structured and disposed to supply power to said refrigeration unit and said pool pump,a timer connected between said power source and at least said pool pump, said timer including an on mode wherein the power supplied by said power source flows therethrough to said pool pump and accordingly said pool pump functions to cycle the fluid through said refrigeration unit, and an off mode wherein no power flows therethrough to said pool pump,an automatic timer bypass connected in line between said power source and at least said pool pump,said automatic timer bypass including bypass switching means connected thereto and positionable between a bypass position and a normal position,said bypass position of said bypass switching means of said automatic timer bypass being defined by said power flowing therethrough to bypass said timer if said timer is not in said on mode, thereby ensuring that said power flows from said power source to at least said pool pump regardless of the mode of said timer so as to cycle said fluid through said refrigeration unit for heating thereof, andsaid normal position of said bypass switching means of said automatic timer bypass being defined by said power being capable of flowing from said power source to at least said pool pump only through said timer, thereby ensuring that only when said timer is in said on mode will said power flow to said pool pump.
