    Cover Pumps

    1. 4 years ago
      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.

      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.

      Good Pump
      It is a good design overall. I tested it when it arrived in my pool to drain the excess water, it worked well. It pumps a lot faster than the other pump I bought a few years ago for the same price. I am worried about the longevity and the connector not being metal, which is why I am only giving it 4 stars.

      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.

      Compact, easy to set up
      The pump arrived really fast. Double packed and we had it hooked up and running in about 5 minutes.

      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.

      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.

      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 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!

      Not Bad for the Price
      I've had one of these for at least six years. I made the mistake of leaving it outside this summer and the plastic broke where the tubing connects, so I ordered another one. The siphon pump is a frustration, but if you know how to get a siphon started, it can get almost every drop of water off the cover. Use it after closing but before freezing. In the spring, use it and with a few dry days the winter cover will only have a few leaves left before you remove it.

      Above-Ground Cover Drain
      This drain was very easy to use and did what we wanted. Kept water off our pool cover the entire winter. Just had to go out and start it draining after every rain, but that is what we expected. For he price, definitely worth it. In years past we had problems with water standing and then the leaves that had fallen after the cover was put on weighted down the 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.

      Good pump
      Work well pumps the water off quickly and quietly.

      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.

    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.
