    Also - is it normal for the heat pump to be leaking like this? Believe this is just condensation but seems pretty wet.

    Help! Generic Heat Pump Question

    Thanks. I run my pump 24/7 so no additional factor. So I figured at max it costs to run $10.48 per 24 hours. Since I’m trying to have this ready in 30 hours from now, I should turn it on now. The low tonight is 58 so I assume will prob be running all night in order to prevent loss. I prob will...

    Whoops. Made a math mistake. The $1.92 would be the per hour rate. So that is around $10 a day if running 24/7. So still kind of pricey.

    thank you. I actually called to confirm my rate - it’s actually $0.082 KWH. So even if I had my heat pump on 24/7 that’s about $1.92 a day.

    Calling the electrician back out. At least I know the problem. I guess writing out this post helped me think and solve my own problem. Thanks for everyone’s quick inputs

    Only other item - I noticed my flow switch has a slight problem with exposed wire, I’m going to fix with electrical tape - but I don’t think this would cause the SWG breaker to trip

    Help! Mystery with SWG breaker!

    Thanks. I’ve heard that’s ideal setup but I wasn’t the original home owner that built the pool,so not sure why it was done like it was. I can’t personally - guess I would have to call an electrician. But not sure if that is really the problem? Been in the home for 2 plus years and this has never...
