Assume 10,000 gallon pool, 2 turns of water per day, 50' head my last Wapa bill was  $           0.473  / kilowatt hour

These calcultaion show how much each pump costs to circulate the same amount of water per day
Note - bigger pumps are more efficient only if your pipe is large enough to accommodate the larger flow
Conclusion - That pump you saved $300 buying may cost you $500 per year in extra electricity!
