Can anyone tell me how long the timer for an 8x4 pool should be left on daily, when the pool is not being used. just been told my electricity bill is 100 for the month, the only thing that is on is the pool pump.

It depends on how much water is in your pool and how powerful your pump is.

Typically, it should be about 6 hours in any 24 for filtration purposes. Pools with salt water chlorinators will require up to 12 hours a day in July/August (Oh dear).

At standard domestic rates, 640 units would cost in the region of 213 YTL, that's about 100.



31 days in the month, say 1HP motor, (approx 0.75 units per hour to run) hmmm..



I'd say your pump has been running for about 27 hours per day....



Are you sure that no one is nicking your electricity?



Or are you perhaps on 'Builder's Electric' rates? - If so, that would make it 7.5 hrs per day (ish)



25% more than needed Vaughan?

Blooming eck Steve, thats a big bill. Cant remeber if you said you were on builders electric? If not thats very scary. Looking forward to a pint sometime soon in the future. Not much development since the Land registry in

March. Take care.

Hi stevie

Just had friends electric bill not there all the time just pool running 6hours a day 115 ytl.

maybe your pool man has got it on 24-7 he then dosnt have to clean it as often, puts loads of chemical in and then lets the filtration do the rest. Needs to be checked out maybe bri can have a look at the timer for you.

I suspect that you have either:

A pump larger than 1hp, or

your timer is set for more than 6 hours, or

you are on a higher than domestic tariff, or

a bit of all the above.

Thanks all I think the the guy who cleans the pool has left the pump running 24/7 for an easy life, guess who`s getting both barrels when we come out on 17th Sept. we hve got Kibtec electricity I know the bill should not be as high as 100 for a month.

I'd get it looked at before then as you've got 18 days to go before you get there. If the pump is running 24/7 you are still running up a big bill.
