What is the Power Usage Of An Above Ground Pool Pump
What Are My Power Usage Going To Be?
The Short Answer is a 1hp pump is going to cost you @ 37.5 cents an hour to run.
Here’s the math:
Amps x Volts = Watts
1 HP Pump at 110v uses 14 amps at 220v 7 Amps
1540 Watts or 1.5 Kilowatt Hours Each Kilowatt will cost 25 cents.
We recommend running your filter about 4 hour a day
total daily cost to run your filter $1.50
or $45.00 per month
note: these figures were related to us by an electrical worker at Edison (a So CAL utility company) and are based on ABOVE baseline kilowatt costs.
