# Power consumption of pool pump

Calculating the electricity cost of running a pool pump involves understanding the power consumption of pool pump, operating hours, and electricity rate. This pool pump electricity calculator helps you calculate the cost.

Enter the wattage, hours of usage, and cost per kWh. The energy usage calculator for pool pumps gives you the total energy consumed by them.

## Energy usage of pool pump

 Wattage: Average usage hours per day: Cost per unit*:(Global Electricity rates) Electricity usage per hour: Electricity usage per day: Usage cost per hour: Usage cost per day: Usage cost per month: Usage cost per year:
*The cost is currency independent and same that of cost per unit input given.

### Terms and definitions:

#### Wattage:

Power usage of the device in watts as mentioned on its label.

#### Cost per unit:

The average cost per unit charged by the electric utility. Every country has different tariff rates. Visit: Global Electricity prices for details if you don’t know how much the utility company charges you per unit or kWH.

#### Units per day:

The number of units of electricity consumed by the load every day considering the entered operation hours.

#### Hours of usage:

The number of hours the load is used per day.

The electricity usage depends on the wattage and the number of hours of usage. The utility company charges you for the total kilowatt-hour of energy you have consumed. Kilowatt-hour is the product of the power consumption of the load and the number of hours of usage.

## 1. Find the Power Rating:

• Check the Pump Label: Look for the power rating on the pool pump label or in the manufacturer’s specifications. This is usually expressed in watts (W) or kilowatts (kW).

Example: Suppose the pool pump has a power rating of 1.5 kW.

### A. Determine Daily Operating Time:

• Estimate Hours: Find out how many hours per day the pump operates. This can vary based on pool size and cleaning needs.

Example: If the pump runs for 8 hours per day.

## 3. Calculate Daily Energy Consumption

Use the formula:

Energy Consumption (kWh)=Power Rating (kW)×Operating Hours (h)\text{Energy Consumption (kWh)} = \text{Power Rating (kW)} \times \text{Operating Hours (h)}Energy Consumption (kWh)=Power Rating (kW)×Operating Hours (h)

Example Calculation: Energy Consumption=1.5 kW×8 h=12 kWh/day

## 4. Determine the Electricity Rate

• Check Your Electric Bill: Look at your electricity bill to find the rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh). This rate is usually listed in cents per kWh.

Example: If the electricity rate is $0.12 per kWh. ## 5. Calculate the Daily Electricity Cost Use the formula: Daily Cost=Energy Consumption (kWh)×Electricity Rate ($/kWh)

Example Calculation: Daily Cost=12 kWh×$0.12/kWh=$1.44 per day

### 6. Calculate Monthly and Annual Costs

A. Monthly Cost: Monthly Cost=Daily Cost×Number of Days in a Month

Example Calculation: Monthly Cost=$1.44×30=$43.20

B. Annual Cost: Annual Cost=Daily Cost×Number of Days in a Year

Example Calculation: Annual Cost=$1.44×365=$525.60

## Summary Example

For a pool pump with the following parameters:

• Power Rating: 1.5 kW
• Operating Hours per Day: 8 hours
• Electricity Rate: $0.12 per kWh Daily Cost:$1.44

Monthly Cost: $43.20 Annual Cost:$525.60

• ## Power consumption & Energy usage of LED lamps

The energy usage of LED lamps is much less than that of CFL lamps, fluorescent lamps or incandescent bulbs. It can produce 80-100 lumens/ watts which is almost 5 times higher than the lumens/ watts capacity of incandescent bulbs (16 lumens per watt). By using LED lamps at home, you can reduce electricity usage. Moreover,…
