We had a 21,100 gal IG/SWG/Cartridge filter pool installed a little over a month ago. We just got a our first electricity bill. WOW! $75 increase over the normal bill. It was a hotter month with more need for AC, but looking at the daily use, I can see a definite and consistent increase starting the day we turned on the pump.
I've been running the pump for 12 hours per day but now that I have the levels stabalized, I think I can cut it back to 8 hours. That should help some, but I was wondering what others see in terms of electricity impact from pool equipment. Is this normal?
