Best Answer

Your gas pool heater should have a BTU/hr rating for input and output printed on a placard somewhere on the heater. Look for the input rating and divide by 100,000 to get Therms/hr. Assuming your gas is being billed in dollars per Therm, just multiply that rate by your Therms/hr. to get dollars/hour. Multiply this by how many hours you run your gas heater and that's your total pool heater operating cost.

Also take in account the time of year temp and wind. If your heating your pool to 78-85 degrees and your pool water is 60 degrees that would be an 18-25 degree temp rise. Your pool is exposed on all sides and this will bleed heat off quickly. It may never achieve the temp desired or not shut down and always call for heat.
