According to Wiki to convert horsepower to kilowatts you multiple the horsepower by a factor of 0.746.

How do you convert horsepower to kilowatts

However, you are saying that your 1 HP motor uses 1.84KW instead of 0.746KW which doesn't make sense to me.

You will be shocked by how much your electric bill will rise by the use of the pool pump. To figure out how much, find out the Kilowatt (KW) rating of your main pool pump and your pool sweep pump and multiply this by the number of hours each runs. Then multiply this by your electric bill Kilowatt-hour (KWh) rate.

For my 16,000 gallon pool which uses a 1 HP motor at 1.84 KW running 8-10 hours per day plus a 0.75 HP motor at 1.495 KW running 3 hours per day for the pool sweep, the cost is $75-$90 per month (at 13 cents per KWh).

I have a 15000 gallon pool with a 1 HP motor running 10-12 hours per day. The electric bill is $100-120 per month.
