Faster Doesn’t Always Mean Better
A large misconception is that pool water should be circulated as rapidly as possible in order to obtain the cleanest water, and then the pool pump should be shut off.
In fact, the opposite is true — from both a cost and sanitation perspective, it is much more efficient to run a pool pump at a slower rate for 24 hours a day. This is because moving water is much easier to maintain than stagnant water when it is shut off after rapidly being pumped for 6–8 hours. It is also tremendously more cost-efficient to operate a pump at a slower speed, but you will want to have an accurate reading of your pool’s flow rate with the FLOWREAD™ before making the adjustment.
Calculating the Power of Your Pool Pump
While it may seem a bit technical, calculating the output of your pool pump is pretty straightforward:
- First, you will want to find the voltage and amps on the label of your pool pump and multiply those numbers together to get watts.
- Once you have the watts figured out, you will want to divide that number by 1,000 to get kilowatt-hours.
- Then, multiply the kilowatt-hours by the number of hours you operate your pool pump per day.
- Lastly, you will take your kilowatt-hours per day by the kilowatt-hour daily cost for your area (the average rate is $0.13 in the U.S.) to achieve the amount of money you are spending daily to run your pool pump.
Now that you can see how much you are spending per day, you can also multiply that number by the number of days in a month for however many months out of the year you operate your pool for. That’s a lot of money, isn’t it? Since this would be your pool pump working at full speed, just think about how much money you could save if you got an accurate reading of the gallons per minute that your pool is turning over and could dial in your pool pump to a slower, more efficient rate?
