# Thread: Inground Pool Pump Electrical Cost

1. ## Inground Pool Pump Electrical Cost

I have had my pool for over 15 years and it has become painfully necessary for me to attempt to derive a monthly cost of the electricity used by this pool pump. My best guesstimate, is at least \$100.00 monthly. If anyone can offer any assistance it will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance! I am guessing you need to know the capacity, it is 33,000 gallon. The size of the pump is 2HP and I just replaced that pump this summer. Any further information, please let me know. Also, I live in TN and the pool is only open approximately 4 months annually.

Welcome to TFP!

It very much depends on how many hours a day you run the pump and what your electric rates are. \$100 a month is quite plausible, but it could be significantly more or less than that depending.

By the by, texasdad offered a good link. Just keep in mind that the calculator texasdad pointed to does a fairly good job estimating costs for a single speed pump, but it can be wildly wrong estimating costs for running an IntelliFlo (which are much more difficult to predict than they imply, depending on a number of other factors, and only occasionally as low as they estimate).

you must have alot of head to need a 2hp pump

try calculating with this http://www.poolplaza.com/pool-pump-sizing-2.shtml

need to add your total electrical costs including taxes and fees and such to one number for your kwh

volts of your pump x amps of your pump equals watts x hours of operation equals watt hours times your electrical kwh rating you got equals cost of use. assuming you have it on one set speed or a single speed for continuous electrical consumption keeping your numbers stable
