The cost to hook up your pool equipment to your electrical system in your house can vary widely. Below I will breakdown a typical price range and a list of the factors that may affect the cost.
The average cost that we have been seeing the past few years has been between $1,800 and $2,800.00 for a traditional pump, heater, pool light, and automatic pool cover.
The cost of your electrical service can vary based on these factors:
Length of run: How far your pool equipment pad is from the main breaker panel for your home. The longer the run the more material and time to install.
Available space in your breaker panel: If you do not have enough spare breakers for the pool equipment, you will likely need a second panel or a complete upgrade to your existing system to power your equipment
Finished basements: Finished basements can pose some troubles when trying to run new conduit and wire to your equipment pad. This will typically affect the length of time and materials needed to complete the work.
Automation: Wiring up pool automation will add to the cost of the service as well, due to the added time and materials needed to complete the installation.
