cover pump question

shadesDecember 5, 2010

I am fairly new to the pool world and I am wondering if there is a cover pump that most people agree is the best or most reliable. I have one now but the automatic pump function never works and it seems as if the pump doesn't work half the time. Thanks in advance!

For a solid safety cover and most tarp covers, the Rule 1800 has provided many with exactly what you are looking for.

I have experimented with them all, found non of them to be reliable.

Thank you for the responses I will check out the rule 1800, who knows maybe none will be reliable but at least I will try with the rule, maybe in my situation leaves, freezing temps in NJ nothing will be perfect.

Just gently break up the thin surface ice before setting the new pump. During extended cold snaps, unplug it. I try to encourage using the outlet nearest the back door.

I put the hose down hill, not down the driveway or walkways, and minimal exposure to lawn mowers and aerators. I like to see them flagged.
