is not included. That I have not tried to measure that part. The treatment cycle I can see on my battery monitor
and it is 2 minutes long. Flushing would include the fresh water
pump plus the macerator. It's just a matter of seconds. I'm not sure what the old ones used. Ours is only about 4 years old so I think that is after they changed them. WE use the fresh water
purasan system. It's virtually identical except is also uses a Hypo Chloride injection system instead of salt water
. I think it makes for less maintenance
on the head
, but you do use fresh water.
I think if you look at in terms of 2 minutes you can do the math and it isn't much power in terms of amp hours used. You can also tell when you look at the install manual as the wire size is important as far as voltage drop. If you flush 10 times a day that is still only 0.33 hours a day times the amps used. The short time it runs just makes it hard to be even on the top 10 list of things that use a lot of power. Your fridge runs on average 12.0 hours a day.
