    Cover Pumps

      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.

      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.

      Solid so far
      After going through a few of the cheap cover pumps that my local pool retailer sold, I decided to buy a more durable pump from here. I'm sorry I didn't do this sooner. The higher price is well worth it. This pump is more solidly built than the ones from my pool retailer (which frequently broke into pieces if I dropped them from a height of one or two feet off the ground unlike this one). The pump gives you the option of using a larger drain hose or an ordinary garden hose for draining, but even ... read more with a small garden hose, it pumps the water off the cover MUCH faster than the cheapo pumps from my pool retailer. A job that used to take several hours with the old pump can be done in just one or two with this pump. Still have to see how it does in the colder weather, but so far, so good.

      Nice pump
      I used two covers this year,placing a safety cover over the winter cover. I placed the pump on top of the winter cover and it's working great.

      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.

      Simple and Easy to Use
      This above-ground cover drain is easy to set up and use with minimal effort. It works really well at draining the water off my pool cover. It did have some kinks in the hose when I got it out of the box but simple needle nose pliers solved the problem. The only con to this product is that I have to lower it unto my pool cover with a rock on top of it because on its own it is too light to sit flat on the cover while it drains. The rock doesn't impede the draining so I am happy with the product.

      works fine BUT"kinky"!!!
      have a 33' above ground and this takes the rain water off nice AFTER you try and get all the kinks out of the hoses!! thin wall hoses twist and kink easy. but this takes the water off fine without having to use an electric pump. glad I bought it

      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.

      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!!

      Excellent product
      I was skeptical at first about purchasing this product becasue it was so small and inexpensive compared to all the other pool cover pumps out there. Well you know the saying, "good things come in small packages" well this product confirms that. My pool is an inground 20,000 gallon pool about 14x16. The top of my pool cover was filled with water, I was afraid my cover was going to break. Well the pool pump that I had died so I needed another one. Just coming out of the Christmas holidays, I did ... read more not want to spend a lot of money on a pool pump. I came across this little wonder and I was very impressed. I set in out about noon and left it running all night. When I got up this morning, the only thing that was on my pool cover was leaves. ALL the water was gone, drained out. My only fear now is that I don't know how long the motor was running without pumping the water out, so I hope that did not mess it up. It should have had an automatic turn off swtich once all the water was out. Love the fact that it was only $40.00, NO assembling and easy to work. BEST PRODUCT EVER!

      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.

      Great for the price
      It’s a good little pump. Only no auto on/off. Pumps great.

      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.

      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.

      Excellent choice for needed job!

      Great pump
      This is my second Little Giant pump. The first was purchased 20 years ago and I am still using it. I looked at other pumps, but decided to stay with a proven winner.

    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. Submersible utility pumps can also be used for lowering water level or draining hot tubs. 


    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 of our submersible 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.
