Default We sold our pool and no more pool pump running.

Last year the kids only swam once in the pool. This year I sold it to someone that will use it.
I bought the pool 7 years ago for $625 and sold it for $500. Not to bad.

I had a very efficient pool pump I sold it also. Not running a swimming pool pump all summer will be even more efficient.
I am the one that keeps it clean so I won’t miss that either.

I've always heard that pools are a lot of work. I remember you posting your work on it, and I seemed to recall that the pump does seem to eat up a lot of juice.

I'm curious to know what that does to your monthly electrical consumption.

I had bought a super-efficient variable speed 240-volt pump.
My old one speed pump was about $90-$100 month the variable speed pump was about $20 -$24 month.

It was a huge difference and paid for its self the first year.
