Expert Review
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 built-in debris and ice overload protection for added safety. This does not mean that it is designed to be left on your pool cover all year round throughout the freezing conditions of winter. It just provides you that added protection should you start hitting those low temps early into the cold weather season and you forget to bring that pump in for the really cold days. Together with all these features and the 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty, the Wayne WAPC250 gets our recommendation.

Expert Review
This pool cover pump is recommended 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 offers a piece of mind you can't ignore.
