Not sure why you want a refurbished one - most manufacturers these days do not rehab appliances - both from an economics and liability and "stealing market" from their new products reasons. So, any rehabbed unit you get would probably have been done by - who knows who - so I would not count on high reliability or life. I would doubt you will save more than a few hundred $ by getting an rehabbed one, and not as good a warranty, if any. Also, I would not count on the contractor giving you any "parts and labor" warranty on a used unit.

Depending on your climate and pool size and installed BTU capacity and such, the heater itself would normally (for a constant temp pool) be $1000-2000 - but can run into the many thousands for fast-recovery or high capacity ones. Saw one once for a mansion outdoor pool which was designed to heat the pool on demand which had 2 million BTU capacity - it brought the pool up to 85 degrees starting a few hours before the planned use time, then turned off till the next planned use and let the pool drop to the 50's-60's (ambient temp) till the next desired use, sometimes many days or even weeks away - cost about $20,000 ion today's $.
