Welcome to

Do you know what the wattage rating is? If not, I an use standard ratings for the calculation

Expert:  ProGrade replied 1 year ago.

The daily cost would be between $1.50 & $2.00 depending on ground and water temperature at $.10 per kWH. A little more if your price for electricity is more.
