## How do I run electricity to my above ground pool?

## What size breaker do I need for a 230 volt pool pump?

## How much power does a 1.5 HP pool pump use?

Most Energy Efficient Pool Pumps

Calculating Pool Pump Energy Use: Each horsepower uses 746 watts. For a 1.5 hp pool pump, multiply 746 watts by 1.5 hp, for a total of **1,119 watts**. Most utilities charge from 10¢ to 15¢ per kilowatt-hour, and to know kilowatt-hours, multiply watts X hours and divide by 1,000.

## How many amps does a 2 HP pool pump use?

A 2 hp pump won’t pull twice as many amps as our 1 hp example motor UST1102, but it will be more, about 25% more, up to **20/10 amps**. The EE version of our example motor, the UCT1102 ‘The Conservationist’, uses 11 / 5.5 max load amps, or a reduction of just over 25%.

## What breaker do I need for pool pump?

## Does a pool pump need to be on a dedicated circuit?

**A dedicated circuit serves just one appliance or outlet**. The reason you’d want a dedicated circuit here is because of how greedy the pump can get. If you house it on a circuit with another appliance or piece of equipment, you may end up tripping your breaker.

## How do you wire a GFCI breaker for a pool pump?

(1) Install a 20 amp GFCI at the main breaker panel for the dedicated 240 line for the pool pump. **Neutral wire from GFCI attaches to ground/neutral bus which is the same at the main**. (2) Add 240 Disconnect by pool pump. (3) Add Intermatic PS3000 surge protector by connecting it to disconnect.
