    Cover Pumps

    1. 2 years ago
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Works exactly like advertised.
      I had two different 350 GPH cover pumps now and this one is definitely better built. Product came quickly and ordering was easy.

      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 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.

      Excellent choice for needed job!
      The "Wizard" performed quite a "duty," Depriving the Pool Cover of water with its "magic" quite quickly--

      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.

      Best pump.
      My husband say"this is the best pump ever". Loves it.

      Seems better built than other surface pumps
      Construction seems solid. Pumps like a champ and the handy hook on the top is useful.

      So far, so good!
      Just received this and it is doing it's job as promised it would. Attached a longer hose, works great. Would definitely recommend.

      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.

      Shoots water the perfect distance, lands softly as to not harm my lawn!

      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.

      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!

      Wonderful
      Decided to write a review after reading some negative ones. I have purchased 3 of these. I use for my pool, removing water from my hot tub, and other household jobs. Found out it is better not to store in the pool house next to harsh chemicals, but no problem, when the pump stops working, I just dip the hose in some rum and provide a quick suction....the way my dad started hoses in the old days. Great product.

      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.

    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 Frisbeeâ„¢. 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.
