Furthermore, how many amps does a 1.5 HP pool pump use?
In our example we used a 1.5HP Hayward Super Pump. The voltage rating is 115/230 and the amp rating is 18.6/9.3. If you run a pump on the lower voltage rating (115) you will select the higher amperage rating (18.6).
Secondly, how many amps does a 1.5 hp motor draw? Common Horsepower to Amps Conversions
|.75 HP||5.18 A||120 V|
|1 HP||6.91 A||120 V|
|1.25 HP||8.63 A||120 V|
|1.5 HP||10.4 A||120 V|
Beside this, how much power does a pool pump use?
Hi Joe, outside of the air conditioner, the pool pump is the largest energy consumer in the average pool-containing home. Pool pumps use up to 2,500 kWh per year to circulate and filter the water.
How much power does a 1.5 HP pool pump use?
It's not uncommon for a 1.5 horsepower pump to use 1500 – 2000 watts. This is unfortunate, because most pools only need 1/4 to 1/8th horsepower for circulation. Higher power may be needed for tasks like vacuuming the pool.
