    Cover Pumps

      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!

      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!!!!

      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.

      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.

      Dryco Cover Drain
      Installed this with our cover on Sunday. From start to finish it took about an hour to install drain and cover pool. We got our first big rain last night and it is doing the job. Only a little water on the cover this morning while it was still raining. It was easy to hook up the hose to the water return and water was flowing out well while it was raining. Hope it still works when the leaves start falling.

      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 great!
      Our in-ground pool came with our house when we bought it last year. After struggling with the sagging cover due to water weight this past Spring, we bought this pump this fall and it's worked great from Day 1 (and just in time for the heavy rains we had here in Michigan). It had good reviews and I understand why. We put a longer hose on it and it still pumps out the water without any issues. The orange cover around the base of the pump is good at catching leaves and debris as well. We plan ... read more on using it on our spa as well. Now I wonder why we waited so long to buy this! Well worth the money so far.

      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.
      We have had a little giant for several years. I thought it was malfunctioning so I bought another one. Silly me, our original one is still working great so I now have a backup.

      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.

      This is my 4-th pump and this is the very best one. Thanks for the pump and the fast service. Gary

      Great Pool Tool
      We ordered the Above-Ground Cover Drain to remove the standing water from our pool cover. It worked very well removing the water. It ran continuously until the water level was below the rim of the pool. The one thing wrong was that we had to suck on the tube/hose to get the water removal started. The little hand pump that came with the product did not work at all. Otherwise a very good and easy to use product. I would recommend it to a friend.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Excellent choice for needed job!

    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.
