The Superior Pool Cover Pump removes water automatically from your pool cover when water is present and shuts off when the water has been removed. It will turn on in as little as 1-1/2″ of water and has a garden hose attachment to pump the water away from the pool. The pump is built to last using thermoplastic construction and a Hermetically sealed, oil cooled and thermally protected motor with stainless steel motor shaft. The large base provides stability and prevents leaves and other debris from entering the pump. There is a bottom screen that can be removed for easy cleaning and a clog resistant impeller to ensure your pump is always running smoothly. Includes a 5 year warranty!
