Does anyone know what the average cost of electricity is per month to run a pool? We will be sharing a pool but the electricity is charged to another property so we need to know what our contribution should work out at.



thanks

All depends on the wattage of the pump. Most are 1000 watts. So that means 1 unit for every hour of operation. So if your pump is on 6 hours a day that's 6 units per day. Working on an average of 186 units a month, multiplied by the average cost per unit of 20Krs (0.20TL), that gives you a total around 37.20TL a month.

The sums depend upon how amny hours the pump is running.

Next 250 units @ 0.35 TL per unit.

Blimey! Electricity has gone up in price! That's a 100% hike in 18 months!!!

So my figures may be out so the maths is 186 units at 0.325TL thats 60.45TL, and of course if it's builders electric then it's even more, but I'm sure you get the main idea.

As for Dutch's idea of leaving the lights on, add 1 unit for every 5.5 hours they are on.

TimothyCadman,

By February this year, the cost of electricity had doubled in 12 months.

The generous government then announced a reduction! - I think it was 10%...

The reason that I allow 4 hours running time in summer is to keep the pool clear of leaves, bugs etc. - it generally takes over 3 hours for leaves on the pool surface to become 'wetted' - saturated and soggy - and sink to the bottom.

It takes a little over 15 minutes for the pool inlet jets to get the water flowing into the overflow channel - thereby causing any surface debris to be drawn to the edge of the pool.

So, if the pool pump timer is set to come on for 30 minutes every 6 hours, it will keep the surface of the water clean, and minimise the amout of rubbish that falls to the bottom.

Assuming that the correct size of pump was fitted in relation to the volume of the pool, this will give approximately the optimum 'turnover' of water - any more is a waste of electricity in (normal circumstances).

Do they not recommend 8 hours a day in the Summer and 4 hours a day in the Winter?

msg 13

eg me, eg TRNCVaughan, eg all reliable pool suppliers and eg wikipedia, eg the health departments. "....IN MY POOL 4 hrs a day in summer are enough...." is a very bad advice.

this you only can achieve by chlorine and chemical levels above the tolerances and which you most probably add "by feeling". To everybody: you have to filtrate your poolvolume approx one time in winter and two times in summer. subject finished.

msg 1.....

you run aircons, pumps, onetwothree fridges in summer, and the pool pump runs always "on top" of that. it would be only fair to pay your neighbour the "highest tariff", which will be most probably 48 krs or higher.incl VAT it comes to 53 kurus. in winter you could go for 35 plus VAT. so, count yourself, but for a year it will be at minimum 1200 lira just for the pumping.

But only IF your pump does use 1 kW. thats not always the case. most of the pumps "input" is higher than that, but it writes only the "output" on it. measure the amps!

Pugsey - we have a private pool (8m x 4m) - the cost to run (electricity) is around 30 - 34 per month. This is when we are not there and the only electricity running is the pool pumps. Hope that helps
