How low does it pump the water out and will it go on in shallow water

We are trying to find a pump for our cellar that gets water about 1/2 inch that will turn off and on by itself
Asked by: Geegee
It pumps the water out to approximately 1/8 inch. It has an automatic shut off and so far has worked very well.

How do you get it to the middle of the pool without it falling over

I have a 16 x 32 above ground pool that constantly has ebbs and tides on the cover and collects water more in some areas than others. How do you easily move this pump around, ie towards the center of the pool without it tipping over. Also I read it cannot stay out in the winter - so I cannot leave the pump on the cover during snow and once melted it will remove the water. I would have to remove it during winter and place it back when warmer?
Asked by: maxe
This may sound silly,but I slowly push the pump into the center of the pool cover with my pool brush. It does the trick.

1/4 HP Auto On/Off Pool Cover Water Removal Pump is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 89.

None of them work this 2nd season! Also, they leave approximately 3" of water on the cover. Home Depot will not accept return after 90 days or get involved with processing the 3 year warranty. Contacted Wayne about warranty repair / replacement - and I now have to mail back the 4 pumps at my time and expense for an evaluation. Not a good customer solution - new pool cover pumps will have to be purchased to remove water while these pumps are evaluated. No confidence with the product or customer service, will have to spend more money for new (different) pool cover pumps and to send these 4 pumps back. Save yourself aggravation, time and money - AVOID THESE PUMPS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cover Pump Review No Assembly required. Pulled it out of the box, plugged it in and watched it work in a rain storm for the next two days. The only problem I had was the tons of debris that kept piling up around the unit. I had to keep moving it around the pool and clean the debris (no fault of the pump). Seems to work fine. Doesn't pump as fast as I thought but it works and that's all I need it to do.

Working fine and it has a solid construction. The real test will be this winter with snow and ice. As of now, I think it's a sturdy pump at a fair price as compared to others on the market. I use this pump on a solid Loop-Loc pool cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wayne 1/4 horse pump Delivered faster than the promised delivery date. Good pump for the money, but, I do have to question the Gallons per Hour the manufacturer states that it pumps.

So far so good, I keep an eye on the forecast if the temperatures drop below freezing ( Pennsylvania) I remove it from the cover. My previous pump only lasted 3 seasons. It is a quiet pump and has performed well to this point. We are expecting a large amount of rain in the next few days.

It is the second one I have purchased as the first died after only three winters of use . I was disappointed with the short life but as the design works so well I took a chance that this purchase will give better service.

I looked at many different pool cover pumps but based off the reviews I chose this one and I am so glad I did. It was so easy to use. It was more money than some of the other ones but I'm glad I didn't go off price. You will not be unhappy with this pump.
