This Wayne pool cover pump offers the basic features that most other pumps offer with the added bonus of iSwitch® Sensing Technology and the built-in strainer that filters debris to minimize clogging. Along with the 25-foot power cord and 25-foot "Pull To Shore" rope that's also included to prevent damage to the pump cord & makes it easy and safe to retrieve, this pump also includes a built-in debris and ice overload protection for added safety.

This does not mean that it is... more

Pumped Only Lasted A Month
The pumped worked great for about a month now it seems to be hit or miss. I am hoping to send it back as soon as i see a dry week or so in the forecast.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality, Durability

Christopher,
Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your pump. I would suggest reviewing the troubleshooting chart on page 5 of the WAPC250 Owner's Manual. Wayne provides a 3-Year Warranty on this pump. If you're still having trouble, Please call WAYNE Pumps (800-237-0987) for Warranty instructions.

Christopher,
I'm sorry to hear your frustrations with the WAPC250 you purchased. Please see the video linked here, in regards to cleaning the weep hole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-h1zmWLGJo

Cleaning the weep hole is vital, as small debris can clog this, causing cycling on/off.

Please let us know if this does not solve the issues you've encountered, and we can discuss replacement options.

It Is A Return.....
Didn't even try it because, what is posted online vs what is written in the brochure are two different things! I need something that removes standing water, as little as 1/2 inch which the online says it will do, not so with the paper work - won't even turn startup until something like 2" (can't recall the exact amount and it's boxed up now), tried to call the company but for no response. Disappointing. Received days later than was stated.
Cons: Expensive, Bad Instructions

Nancy,
After reviewing the information on our product page and the spec sheet, everything is correct. You may have confused the specs with another model you viewed. For returns, please email service@waterpumpsdirect.com or please call 1 (888) 455-4681

Nancy,
Hi Nancy,

Sorry to hear about the confusion with your WAPC250. Unfortunately, due to the design of the pump, a little over 1 1/2" of water is needed to properly start the pool cover pump, and avoid any damage to the motor. That being said, once the pool cover pump has been started, it will pump down to 1/2".

Please let us know if you have any other concerns.

Works Fine
Pump came quickly and was easy to set up. Use it as a pool cover pump. Works fine so far - have had three fairly heavy rains and no complaints. Only thing I would change about it is when it cycles on - only after about 21/2 inch of water is present. Would prefer it cycle sooner - but that is just a personal preference. Works well.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality

It looks like it will live up to it’s great reviews. So far not much rain in our area but it has gone on and emptied rain that pooled up. Was quick and thorough. Glad I purchased it. Well worth the price.

Don't Be Foole By The Rating!
This pump doesn't do 50 GPM. At 1/4 HP the most it will do is 5-6 GPM.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Auto shut off sensor
Cons: Expensive

Hugh,
If you're having trouble getting the desired GPM from the pump, I'd suggest contacting Wayne Tech Support at (800) 237-0987

Delivered With Defect
When the product came the check valve hose connector fitting was in 2 pieces instead of one. I was confused so I called Wayne directly and they said to glue it until they could send me a replacement. Obviously someone was supposed to glue one piece to other but missed this one! It was not usable in that form as the hose could not be connected to the pump. Hard to believe this left the factory this way. Thus a low grade on quality. Pump works well now that I have the new part. Wayne did not... more

I have purchased four pumps for my pool cover over the years and everyone of them stopped working very early. Rain has hit us hard since I received this pump and it has worked to perfection and the best part, I have not had to touch it.
