    The pump has 0 light bulbs

    It likely uses at least around 1600 watts ... so depends on the size of your light bulbs.

    1800-1900 Watts if is a full rated or 1500-1600 watts if it is up rated and it also depends on the plumbing.

    If we use 60 watts (a common household size) as the standard, your pump will use about 30 incandescent light bulbs worth of electricity, or about 140 equivalent CFL's, or about 190 equivalent LED's.
