    Cover Pumps

      Great Pump!
      This is a great little pump. I bought it to pump out low lying areas in my yard after hurricane Florence. I set it on a small piece of plywood to give it a flat surface to sit on. Hooked up a garden hose and plugged it in. It pumps out a pretty good stream for a small pump and had the water pumped out pretty quickly. Just keep an eye on it so it doesn't run dry. It does run hot but it seemed to do okay anyway.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Came without paperwork.
      I ordered this cover pump to try this winter. I was surprised when I opened the box. There is no instructions or paperwork inside at all. Not even a warranty paper. I hope it works.

      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!!!!

      I love this pump, it pumps the cover off when it rains an shuts its self off. I never have to go out in the cold.

      Best Pool Idea Ever!!!
      This pump is the best thing since sliced bread. It just got done raining for three days straight. I have an above ground pool that puddles in two places. Having only one pump, I had to move from one place to the other. This was not a problem since sliding the pump into the middle of the puddle, squeezing the bulb two or three times, and walking back into the house only took about a minute. This is a very simple siphon device, and works as such, The people having trouble operating this pump might ... read more try shortening the hose, you only need enough to reach from the pump to the ground beside the pool, I cut about four feet off. I will be purchasing another one next year to make draining the water off my cover even easier PS. It even drains while sucking air, most siphons will stop. This pump brought a 4' x 10' puddle down to a 14" puddle in less than two hours, the time it takes to watch a movie in your dry home I used a snow shovel to remove the little that was left, and in a few hours, I had a completely dry cover.

      Easy to use with good results
      I purchased the above ground cover drain recently, and it was easy to use and siphoned the excess water off of the cover in a relatively short amount of time. I placed the end of a pool cleaning pole across the top of it to keep it underwater as long as possible, and most of the water was removed. Plan on using again just before final winter freeze, and again in the spring prior to removing the cover.

      A winter cover MUST have.
      This was the best item I have ever purchased for keeping water off my pool cover, it is simple, cheap and no more rotten water in my mouth trying to get the water flowing in a hose. Thank you inventor!

      Yes it works
      I have been fighting leaves for several years so I thought I would give this a try, It only took a few minutes to install and get hooked up to my pool. It has been raining off and on for several days since I install the drain kit. It only took one sunny day and it was as dry as a bone.

      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

      Great Product
      I installed this item on my cover and after a 24 hour rain, my cover was basically dry. The leaves haven't really begun to fall yet, but it appears that with the drain keeping the cover dry, the leaves will blow away and/or dry out and blow away. I've messed around with other cover drain solutions without much luck. I don't like the idea of an electric system that has to be plugged in all winter long, plus they tend to be too heavy. Other siphon type drains seem to become plugged up and really ... read more don't do the job. This is the only system that I have actually found to work. I also had the opportunity to deal with the company that makes this item, and they were very professional.

      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.

      Great pump
      Great pump. Great service with In The Sim as always

      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.

      Pump Reliability
      I just bought one to replace one just like it. The original worked great for 3 years. It still was pumping good but the float switch quit working. You would have to go out and shake it to wake it up. Now that I have a replacement, I plan on taking it apart and see if I can't get it cleaned up and get it back to turning on and off automatically.

    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.
