My current pump is a Hayward Super Pump with a 1HP single speed pump. I'm currently running my pump for 6 hours in the morning and 6 hours in the evening. My electric bill shows that I used 176.48 KWH/Day in August when I was running my pump 24/7, and 159.97 KWH/Day in September after I changed my pump to 12 hours per day and I also bumped up one of my thermostats in my home from 70 to 75 degrees.
I want to try to lower my electricity usage even more and I'm thinking of getting the PureLine PL2605 VS pump from INYOpools.com.
I'm paying $0.091/KWH. How do I figure out how much less electricity I will use if I switch my pump out? Will I have to run it for longer due to the lower GPM?
I'm sure my biggest energy hogs are my three central air units, but I'm willing to pay the $600 to change out my pump if it will pay for itself within a reasonable amount of time, I just don't know how to calculate the savings.
Thanks for helping
