      we run ours mostly at night, due to the price of electricity is cheaper at night.

      on days that we had a lot of swimmers we would run it more, but for the most part we would run it at night and not 24/7. My husband would run it a couple hours a day.

      .

      I am dreading pool season coming up soon. Not only do the chemical costs kill my budget but also the electricity to run it 24 hours a day.
      I have a seperate electricity bill from my shop which included my irrigation pump for underground sprinklers and swimming pool pump. My bill is generally $8a month for electricity for the shop through the winter..(base rate) but come summer we are running at around $100 a month for electricity just for the shop.

      Chemicals are even worse…

      My questions are…does anybody that has a large inground pool shut off the pump at night? And if so does it then cost more in chemicals? Any help on saving on chemicals also?

      Thanx in advance!
      Tressa
