Power Equipment Direct Recommended

This pool cover pump is the best, in my opinion, for several reasons.

First of all, the pump comes with a 3/4" garden hose connection and a 25' power cord. The pump is also automatic and has an integrated float switch that activates in 2" of water.

The built in handle makes it very easy to move around and helps with easy placement on the pool cover.

If these features weren't enough, the 3 year warranty stands above the rest.

Unreliable
We put our pool in last year, my pump would only work intermittently. It makes a low humming sound, but pumps no water. I had it replaced under warrenty, but the 2nd one is doing the same thing. It is totally unreliable to remove water from my cover. I have left unplugged, taken out of water, disconnected from hose and put in water to see if it would pump just out the side- but it isnt. Could a 2nd one have gone bad?? It seems like somethings else might be going on.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Light Weight
Cons: Unreliable, Durability

I like the sturdiness and built-in on/off switch, but it's so bulky that the last inch of water I still have to use a smaller pump

Little Giant Pool Cover Pump
I just "installed" this pump on top of my pool cover. I put it between the cover and the Leaf Cover Net. As soon as the water covered the "sensor", the pump worked! So far, so good!! I will update if necessary tomorrow after the predicted rain storm.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations

Good Product, Fantastic Service
This is my second little giant pool cover pump, and it works perfectly. I was very happy to find that Water Pumps Direct had it at this price, which, combined with the free shipping, was $109.00 less than what local pool companies are charging for it.

It was delivered in 2 days, which is faster than most paid shipping service, which is fantastic for this product, especially since it is often an emergency when these pumps fail (heavy rain). Local companies know this and are able to charge... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Electical Cord Beside Water Hose Connection

"Email solicitation practice of PED prevents me from recommending Water Pumps Direct to anyone else. I didn't opt in to being solicited by every power equipment product on the planet and am unhappy with the amount of SPAM I am receiveing. There were other websites I could have bought this from but chose this one because of the free shipping. I am happy otherwise but will go somewhere else in the future because of this issue unless it is resolved immediately.."

Little Giant Pump, Best Buy
With all the recent rain we had on Long Island this fall into winter I look out my window and the pump has kept up with keeping the pool cover dry.

I know I would recommend to anyone who needs a Automatic Pool cover Pump. Look forward to sales on Pool pumps to replace our old one.

Works Nicely!!!
I bought two of these. One for the deep end and one for the shallow end. We hooked them up right before a huge storm and they worked beautifully. No water on my cover whatsoever. I have tried several others that didn't work at all, so I am glad I finally found a pump that works.

Great Pump!
We had a different style with a detachable disc bottom and over time one of the latches failed and the disc wanted to separate. This is all one sturdy piece and it is so fast, I don't even go back in the house. Love it!

No Good
I am on my second Little Giant in 2 years and after one whole season..stopped working. The last one did the same thing. I think I will go back to the $99.00 one I bought at Lowe's and it lasted many years! I can't figure out why they say this is the best!!!!

Product Expert
Luann,
I'm sorry to hear about the repeating issue that you are experiencing with your Little Giant Pool Cover Pump. While these pumps do include a 3 year warranty, they are not designed to be left outside year-round in freezing water conditions. As the instructions point out, the Little Giant APCP-1700 Pool Cover Pump in not designed to be left out year-round and in freezing temperatures or you do risk pump failure that will not be covered under warranty, so you would be replacing at your own risk. The only pool cover pump that we do offer that stipulated that it has some freeze protection, is the Wayne model WAPC250. Wayne states that this pump includes built-in debris and ice overload protection for added safety. And even then, they also state “When temperatures drop below freezing remove pump from service and store indoors to protect pump from damage due to ice.”

If you believe that the failure is due to other factors, please call Little Giant tech support at 888-956-0000 for further assistance.

It's Crap When You Need It To Work
I had this for about two weeks. I used it two times for light rain. Today it's just raining all day and it's cold out. I'm soaked because I was out trouble shooting this thing all morning. It will run but will not pump water. I have so much standing water on my pool cover now and I'm at a loss. I paid $200 for this junk and when you need it - it let's you down. What quits after a few weeks?!

I checked the hose - water runs through it from the house. I checked the float - no debris,... more
