    Cover Pumps

    1. 3 years ago
      well made
      Seems hard to prime, takes a long time to start pumping water. Did not shut off automatically, continued to run when water was gone. Gallons per hour is exaggerated.I was expecting a lot more for the price.

      Best cover pump made!
      I have a automatic in ground pool cover that is permanent. Therefore you need a cover pump on all year. Without any doubt off all the different pumps I have tried this little thing is the best. The weight is perfect and the water gets down to 0. The one I am using now I have had for 4 years and no issues. Yes I leave it on all winter in the Northeast. Just wanted to offer some advice if your on the fence. Spend the money up front, throw this thing on your cover and worry about something else.

      Great buy
      I just bought this a few weeks ago and closed our pool. We just had a huge rainstorm this weekend and it worked like a champ!!

      Works great
      Love it. No more messy hoses all over the place. Just put the sump on the cover and watch it work!! You can tell it is working when you see the water spout out.

      Works well and automatic shut off is good too!!
      I gave a 4 only because I’m using with a above ground pool cover and the only problem is a flat level spot is needed to work properly and if using any tyoe of weighted item that tends to cause the pump to flip on its side and could cause the pump to run continuously which then could burn up the pump as stated in instructions!! If there’s a way to make a weighted type platform that hooks on the side of pool that is level and flat I wouldn’t have to check on and remove pump from cover each ... read more time... that would be great!!! Here you go all inventors out there!!!!

      Great pump
      This pump is great. We had a snowstorm that gave us 10 inches of snow. When it melted my pool cover was full of water. I put the pump in the water and in no time all the water was gone.

      Great Product
      The above ground cover drain is great for keeping water off of your pool cover. Debris does not get caught in the drain only water flowed through the device. The above ground cover drain is an economical and uncomplicated device that keeps your pool cover water free!!!

      Highly recommend
      For the money, this is a great item. Mine finally wore out after four winters and I'm going to buy another. Easy to use. It does take a little time to drain, but I just leave it on the cover all winter, after it rains, just pump the hand pump to get it started and walk away. In Louisiana, it rains A LOT. I definitely got my money's worth.

      For the Price this is Great!
      I have a 24 X 15 oval above ground pool and have 2 of these, one at each side of my pool. After or during a rain I go outside pump a few time and walk away, the pump drains the water from the cover. I don't want to use an electric pump, so this is a Great Solution for removing water from the top of you pool cover.

      So so
      This is a good concept, however it's a one size fits all which makes it difficult to drape the hose flat like the video. This causes the grain not to lay flat on the pool and cover, one end sits up. The hose is to long for an 18' round pool. I email several times to Dryco and asked about this issue and possibly cutting the hose shorter. But no response. None at all. Customer service is horrible in my opinion. How can you make a product and not answer questions about it. In the video is showers ... read more the hose going straight down lay on pool floor then up to return. In the picture it showes hose going straight across from drain to return. Which I think it would work better.

      Pool Drain kit
      I've had it for a month now and been through a couple rains. Awesome is all i can say. No more pumps, or siphon hose what a great ideal. It's a little pricey though.

      Marriaged saved
      Wow...saved my marriage! My wife was done with siphoning the nasty water off the cover by mouth. Figured she was gonna leave me this winter over it. I decided that 100 bucks was worth the gamble to get here to stay and it is worth every penny. Installed it while she cooked Sunday breakfast and it has worked perfect since! Pool drained and marriage saved! Thanks! Stephen

      Excellent Investment
      I love this pump. Bought it to pump the water off my inground pool cover and it works so great. I've even used it to drain my hot tub when needed. Can't believe the power from this little pump.

      Fully met my expectaions
      This little pump must surely have itself confused with one that is much larger. This little pump worked wonders at emptying my pool, and did a quick job of it too. If you need a pump to empty YOUR pool, this is the one to purchase. Absolutely wonderful.

      works really well!!
      I just replaced the last Little Giant pump after 26 years! The pump was still working fine, but the base plate had cracked so it tilted a little. I've kept the pump itself to use as a backup for the new one, but doubt I'll need it.

      Money well spent
      This is our second year of using this pump and it's still working like brand new. For the money, it's definitely a great little pump and keeps our cover clear of excess water.

      Durable
      Second one I've bought first one was ten years old still running good

      good pumping rate but weak housing
      I bought this pump this fall and already used for pumping water from the cover. The hose connector is inserted into the hole in the body which has rather thin wall thickness. After few insertions the body developed a crack. Pump was operational but I was afraid that it will not leave long and glued the hose connector into the hole with PVC glue. Will see how it will last.

      Works Well
      This pump appears to working as advertised even with the heavy pollen this spring in the South that makes the cover look like a sea of yellow. The only thing I wish it had was a better way to hook something up to the top of it to move it out to more of the center of the cover. The picture has a loop on the top, the actually there is a good handle, but it is a T and I had to get a pipe to try and place over it to try and move it out. Not essential but would be nice.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Cover Pumps

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Why Use a Pool Cover Pump?

    Cover Pumps are an essential pool closing accessory if you own an inground pool or an above ground pool. Cover Pumps sit atop your winter pool cover and pump water off of its surface after it reaches a certain level. This alleviates stress and weight off of your pool cover throughout the course of the winter.


    Swimming pool cover pumps also add a measure of safety for winterizing an inground pool by eliminating the need to knock heavy snow off the cover yourself.  You simply wait for the snow to melt, and let the safety cover pump do the rest of the work. 

    Automatic cover pumps will turn themselves on and off to keep the cover mostly pumped off, automatically. Manual cover pumps will run whenever plugged in, and are thus used intermittently, and unplugged when not in use.

    All winter pool cover pumps are fully submersible, and can also be used for lowering pool water level or other household dewatering applications. All pumps include 25 ft NEMA power cord, and use a garden hose discharge hose (not included).

    TIP: To keep your pool Cover Pump from clogging with leaves and for easier placement and retrieval, place it on an upside down Frisbee™. A pool Leaf Rake Net is useful for scooping leaves from a solid cover, or remove them all at once with a Leaf Net Cover.
