Due my $477 electric bill last month, I completed a comprehensive breakdown of all of my appliances/equipment etc. In short, here are my pool equipment findings:
Jandy Stealth 1 1/2 hp pump
7.7 amps, 885 watts, 2.12 Kwh
Polaris booster pump:
5.6 amps, 644 watts, 1.54 Kwh
We pay .25 per kwh from edison, for the Jandy pump this translates into $95.40 for 30 days @ 6hrs per day. The booster pump costs $45.60 for 30 days @ 4 hrs. per day. We ordered the Intelliflow from our pool builder, $1350.00 installed, plus we will apply for a $200 rebate from Edison.
I plan on listing the Jandy pump, the Polaris booster pump, and my Polaris 280 on our local craiglist. We are going to wait on ordering the the intelliomm 4 since we have dual Jandy RS one touch controllers, our pool builder indicated that we could add it later with out any problems. Our pool builder is also going to let me try out a handful of suction side cleaners to determine which one will work best on our pool, we are going to try out the pentair great white and the pentair kreepy krauly to start with, and then he told me we could also try the Jandy rayvac and the Polaris ATV. Hopefully this plan will help out our bottom line!
