Customer Reviews

1/4 HP Pool Cover Pump is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two time Failure I have bought two Flotec cover pumps from Home Depot. Both have failed within the second week of ownership Pumps will cycle and then completely shut off never to run again. Home Depot at first would not accept the return until I convinced them that this was a pool cover pump and used for nothing else. I was very disappointed in the product and it is very frustrating to get it all set up only to not have it function. Try another product. Home Depot, based upon the other reviews, you need another supplier for pool cover pumps

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this pump I have managed my 18*36 in ground for 14 years using an old pump my dad gave me. When it finally quit I bought this pump and have nothing but troubles for the last 2 years. I returned the 1st one the same day it was purchased - The 2nd pump kept stopping needing to be reset about 100 times to clear the cover. Yesterday it worked great for about 5 hours but now will not start at all. These are junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pump reliability As others have said, this product is so poorly engineered, I cannot believe it is still marketable. First, there are NO warnings in the instruction manual that the ALL IMPORTANT power supply plug is NOT water resistant. Therefore, when the plug gets wet, this plug, which houses ALL of the electronics that supposedly controls all functions of the pump, fails. Flotec will NOT warrantee a plug replacement, and a replacement power cord/plug assy. costs $80.00, almost as much as the pump. This is ridiculous. Persons requiring a cover pump are well advised to look elsewhere for said pump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Worst Pump Ever Made! I have to agree with everything all the other reviewers have said about this pump. Complete misery and aggravation! Stay as far away from Flotec pumps as possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not really worth it Like most everyone else, I've had problems with this pump also. I just had my third one go up. There will not be a fourth. I got around the clogging issue by wrapping the entire pump with fiberglass window screen material to keep the leaves and small debris out. This one has a new twist in that it hums but does not pump. It did last longer than the other two (about one and a half winters). When it works, it does a good job pumping water especially when wrapped in screening to keep debris out. However, at the price it is not worth buying a new one every year or so. And the consumer should not have to correct design flaws.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two pumps, two failures I bought one last year and it failed part way through the winter. I figured I'd give it another shot and bought another one this past spring. It did fine to get my pool open, but after just one week on the cover this fall it died. These pumps are just low quality garbage. Spend your money elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Impressed I am on my second one after the Home Depot graciously exchanged the first one after it quit running the 3rd time I used it. This second is driving me nuts. Runs for seconds at a time. When it's pumping, it works great. Problem is it stays off, longer than it stays on. Don't undersand it. I've read about trapped air pockets. Even tried just pumping water with no way for the filtering screen to plug. For $130, I expected more. Wish I could try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pool cover pump I have used this pump for several months now. IT has worked passed my expectations. It has rained more this year than I have ever seen. I have no worries about the water standing on the cover. Just turn it on and don't worry about it any more. You don't have to keep running out and looking to see if the water is gone so you can turn off the pump. It will do that on its on. I would recommend this product to anyone.
