1/4 HP Auto On/Off Pool Cover Water Removal Pump is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate Pool Cover Pump Well you plug it in put on the pool cover and it pumps the water off adequately turning on and off automatically. The real test will come when the pool is winterized and cover closed and how well the pumps electronics will detect ice, etc. This was the best feature of the Rule pool cover pump (discontinued) but also its Achilles heel in that the electronics would ultimately fail after 2 to 3 seasons of extreme temp/conditions. Although I probably will not leave it on the cover during the hash winter months here in Minnesota,, nothing survives -40 degrees....

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This pump works as advertised; that's a little unusual these days. It is quiet and fast.

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!

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.
