This is just a FYI,
I am running my Intelliflo VF to cycle 30,000 gallons 2x per day, so 60,000 gallons total in 24 hours. The onboard flow meter says 41 gpm at 290 watts. My filter pressure at this slow filter setting is around 2-3 psi. Almost can't read the gauge.
So...at the $0.0751 Kwh that I pay for electricity, this figures out to be $15.68 per month. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by this. I know this will go up when I crank the pump up to run water features, but the base cost is less than I thought it'd be.
Does this math look correct?
290 watts x 24 hours = 6960 watts
6960 watts x 30 days = 208,800 watt/hrs or 208.8 Kwh
208.8 Kwh x $0.0751 per/Kwh = $15.68
I wonder how accurate the wattage meter on the pump is??? I hope they don't 'fudge' it to make it seem better than it really is. I haven't received my first total monthly bill yet to determine things, and the first two weeks the filter ran at a much higher rate so I'm sure it will be higher.
Anybody see problems with my math on this?
