Complete newbie question, also no working knowledge of electricity - apologize in advance
Incredulously, my pool installer installed a Pentair Whisperflo 1.5 HP Dual Speed WFDS-6 INSTEAD OF WHAT I ORDERED, - the Whisperflo 1 HP Dual Speed WFDS-4.
My question is generally if I should care re power consumption costs (no extra cost for the different pump)... if running most of the time on "low speed".
Pentair says that the WFDS-6 1.5 uses 3.5 Amps on low speed, while the WFDS-4 1 HP uses 3.0 Amps on low speed.
I live in San Diego (SDG&E) ... is there a significant cost to using 3.5 Amps vs. 3.0 Amps?
I don't know if I am looking at a difference of pennies per day, or many dollars per day....
I typically want to run the pump on low for approx 8 hours per day.
Does someone generally know the cost differentials in this scenario?
Thanks in advance.
