  2. This video gives a good indication of a typical solar pool electric
    installation and the end result in cost savings more than outweighs the
    pump purchase and installation costs´╗┐

  3. @pennistonfootball – My guess based on the current cost per kWh, would be
    about 3-4 years, plus I am getting more hours per day usage with the solar
    pump. If I was paying for that, I’d be paying for about 10-11 hours per day
    versus the 8 hours I would normally run the pump. So I am getting more pump
    time yet paying nothing. What is really cool – is to see the pool cleaner
    almost come out of the pool from all the water pressure the solar pump puts
    out.

  4. Thanks for posting this. I put a system like this on my pool about 4 years
    ago, in the California central valley. Works like a charm. I used 4
    Evergreen 115 watt modules, but yeah the total watts needed depends on the
    size of the pool and if you have solar pool heating (added head) etc. The
    simple payback for me (with local electricity rates at about $0.15/kWh) was
    about 6 years. But since then the rates are up to $0.18/kWh, so the payback
    will be sooner.

  5. Nice Video…thanks for posting. How long will it be to break even based
    upon just the electrical cost savings?

  6. Over 3 years – no problems – runs all day, with my pool cleaner attached –
    much quieter than a 240V Pool pump – Saving $75-90 per month in electric
    bills. Outside of the US – people are saving money because the goes from
    .13 cents to about .45 cent per kwh! that is 3times or more in cost for
    electric. If you live in the islands – it’s even higher. There are also tax
    breaks from power companies, It works great and it is called an investment
    for a reason.

  7. The problem is that people do not know what they need so it is best to talk
    to the company. Sure you can buy the pump, but do you know which how many
    panels to buy, do you have water features, how far away do you have to
    place the panels to get full sun, what type of racks to use, what type of
    roof do you have, etc.
