When we choose a backyard pond pump, one of the important things to know it how much it will cost to operate it. Most backyard pond pumps run 24 hours daily, 7 days weekly, so the electricity costs can mount up fast. It is relatively easy to find out how much it is going to cost to run your pump.
For illustration purposes only. Based on $ 0.10 per Kilowatt Hour and 12 months continuous use. Your actual costs may vary depending on your cost per KWH, head height, tubing diameter and actual use.
Watts divided by 1000 = Kilowatts x $ 0.10 per KWH (Kilowatt Hour) x 24 hours x 365 days.
