What is the real cost to run my pool heater? 

Buying a heat pump unit from Poolworx guarantees the best price, but what about the cost to run the unit for days, weeks, months? When investing in your own happiness, it's important to understand the total cost of ownership for a heat pump. As you'll find out on this page, it's surprisingly cheap and efficient to heat your pool this way.

Overview for average 8x4 pool at 28°C

We have prepared a quick visual overview to help you figure out how much it will cost you to heat your pool. (Our calculations are based on Spanish Costa climate conditions)
The actual water volume of the pool is not the biggest factor that impacts the overview. The evaporation surface has much more influence!

Example 1:
If you want to swim May trough September it will cost you a "Big Summer Swim" at 261€ or 1,74€/day.
If you want to swim April trough October, you need to add another 256€ for those 2 months. In total you get the cost of "Extended Summer Swim" at 517€ or 2,4€/day.

Example 2:
If you only need a heater for a couple of weeks in April because you are having family over for easter, it will cost you around 4€/day.
This is the daily cost of the lighter orange area "Early & late summer swim".

Cost per ...?

Not everyone needs to have their pool heated 365 days a year, therefore you can use the visual above to find your cost.
Now you should have a realistic indication of how much it would cost to only heat for a selected period of time.
