      Works Well
      This pump appears to working as advertised even with the heavy pollen this spring in the South that makes the cover look like a sea of yellow. The only thing I wish it had was a better way to hook something up to the top of it to move it out to more of the center of the cover. The picture has a loop on the top, the actually there is a good handle, but it is a T and I had to get a pipe to try and place over it to try and move it out. Not essential but would be nice.

      Good pump
      has no base to stand flat on the cover, other than that this pump works like a champ

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

      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.

      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.

      Goodbye hose!

      Good suction
      So far so good. Just used it today , works good. No problem. Just set it in on the cover, let it settle down on the cover, keep bringing the water to it in it's own dip and your good to go. Just watch so it doesn't run out of water.

      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!!!!

      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.

      Excellent choice for needed job!

      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.

      Fully met my expectaions
      This little pump must surely have itself confused with one that is much larger. This little pump worked wonders at emptying my pool, and did a quick job of it too. If you need a pump to empty YOUR pool, this is the one to purchase. Absolutely wonderful.

      Works well but hose kinks some.
      These do the trick to rid excess water accumulating on top of cover in the offseason. They are light enough to lay on cover without sinking in and designed well to get majority of water off. Tubing is a little flimsy causing kinks but overall works when I need it to. I have a couple that I move around from time to time to get different sections of the cover space.

      Love it!
      After tiring of lugging an electric pump to drain the excess water on the pool cover and having to babysit it the whole time, I was delighted to see this gizmo in the catalog. We’ve used this 3 times so far this fall and have been extremely pleased with its operation. Once you get the water flowing, you can go about your business and check on it later. As others have mentioned, the instructions were sketchy, just be sure to turn the little knob on the top of the squeeze bulb to the “on” position ... read more and be sure the squeeze bulb is tightened onto the hose. Love this and hope it is durable. Thanks!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

    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.
