A pool pump is one of the top electricity draining items that can lead to large electricity bills well into the thousands if you are not signed up to the Economy Tariff 33. The energy used by each individual pool will vary across households. 30% of the household electricity costs can be attributed to the pool pump. This can be more than your washing machine, dryer and dishwasher combined!
A typical pool could use anywhere from $300 to $1250 per year worth of electricity. This depends on the time of day that your pool pump system is set to run and your individual electricity providers tariff.
A new energy efficient pool pump might be worth a look into! AJ Palmer Electrical can help you with any new pool pump installation and ensure that you are connected to the Economy Tariff 33 from the get go.
