## How much power does a 1.5 hp motor use?

If the motor is fully loaded, it will provide output power of 1 HP = (1 X 0.746) kW = 0.746kW. Electrical Input Power = (Output Power/Efficiency). Assuming 90% efficiency, Input Power = 0.746/0.9 = **0.83kW**.

## How many watts is a 1.5 HP pump?

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. Modern pool pumps like the EcoPump offer a circulation mode, and a vacuum mode.

## How much power does a 0.5 hp motor consume?

Detailed Solution. 1 unit = 1 kilowatt-hour, i.e. when an electrical appliance consumes 1 kilowatt of power for one hour. So, 0.5 HP for 8 hours = 373 × 8 = **2984 Watt-hour** which is equal to 2984/1000= 2.984 units. 4 motors consumes = 2.984 × 4 = 11.936 units in 8 hours.

## How many kW is a 1.5 hp motor?

Three Phase Motors

MOTOR RATING | HP | |
---|---|---|

0.56 kW | 3/4 | 2.8 |

0.75 kW | 1 | 3.2 |

1.1 kW | 1.5 | 4.5 |

1.5 kW | 2 | 5.8 |

## How much power does a 1 hp motor consume?

The 1 HP motor consumes **746 Watts** regardless of how many hours it is running. Watt and HP are not units of energy. It will consume in 1 hour. 746 KWH of energy.

## How much power does a 1 HP pool pump use?

Our 1 hp example pump uses **1.75 Kw per hour**; whereas a 2 hp motor of the same type (UST1202) would draw 2.4 Kw per hour. That’s around 24 kWh per day, or around 720 kWh per month, just running only 10 hors per day. During the heat of the summer, many pumps need to run longer to maintain clear water.

## How many watts is a 1/6 hp motor?

One electric horsepower is equal to exactly **746 watts**.

## How many gallons per hour does a 1.5 HP pump?

Pool Pump Operating Costs

Pump Size | GPM (varies with plumbing) | Cost/Hour |
---|---|---|

0.5 HP | 40 | $0.03 |

1.0 HP | 60 | $0.06 |

1.5 HP | 68 |
$0.09 |

2.0 HP | 76 | $0.12 |

## How much does it cost to run a 1 hp motor?

Our 1 hp (standard) example UST1102 motor above will cost **between $1-$5 per day**, depending on what your power company charges per kWh, and on how many hours per day the pump is running, which changes within the season. This will result in a monthly cost of $30-$150.
