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 4.5 out of 5 by 118.

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!

I have a 22 ft AGP and Just this week I put this pump together and used it for the first time. It was easy to assemble.What a great item! The pump exceeded all expectations. It started immediately and pumped the water out fast and in any position, sideways, upside down, etc. My pool cover was choked with leaves and it suctioned through with pounds of leaves around it. I bought the 1 1/4 drainage hose with it to facilitate rapid draining. The pull to shore rope was helpful and well used. You can actually throw the pump into the middle of the pool cover and haul it back using the shore rope. I highly recommend this product, it is well built and effective. I found nothing to dislike. I did not have a pump last year and removing my pool cover without one was impossible, all the debris and putrid water fell into the pool. I had to drain and clean. This pump saved me days of hard grueling work as well as the cost of refilling my pool once drained.

Now the pump keeps checking for water but wont actually run the pump. The impeller is free and clear so it would seem the controller is messed up. The controller box is clear and clean as it suggest in the trouble shooting, still no pumping water. On to search for something that will work.

We get a lot of pine needles so we added a piece of fabric screen between the pump and base as an added protection against sucking needles into the motor. It did not affect the draining power.

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.

The initial pumping of the water that had built up on the cover over the winter went quickly. Pump is heavier than previous ones I had. The extra tow rope to position the pump is a nice addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wayne pool pump Works great. Does a fantastic jump pumping water even in the presence of leafs. Auto switch works great. Glade I spent the extra money on this pump vs much cheaper similar models that had questionable reviews. Good choice for pool pump for covers.
