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

Pump Works & Works Fast
I needed a good pool cover pump and this does a great job. I do wish the debris guard was all weather so I didn't have to wait for a snow melt to put it back in its pumping place but I think "convenience" is probably overrated and often deceptive. Hard to beat this pump for price and capability

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

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
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.

Doing A Great Job And Meeting All Expectations So Far
It is doing a great job and meeting all of my expectations. I have used it only once for a (3) day rain about two weeks ago. There was already some water and leaves on the tarp and the leaves were sunk to the bottom. I pumped the water all of the way down and skimmed the leaves off of the tarp. I am awaiting spring and the opening of the pool. Can't wait.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight

Best Pump In The World For The Job
We've had a pool for 26 years and of course the water has to be pumped off the cover. Had different pumps through the years. This is the best for the money out there. Great Great Great. and better.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Easy To Use
Cons: none

Great Pump
I bought this pump after using one from Sears for years. It always frustrated me because it never stood up straight, so a lot of water on top of the pool cover. Problem solved. The very first time I used it, almost all water gone!!!

I've had the pump for a month now, it works great. Not much rain, now but confident it will handle what is coming.
