Pretty sure Home Depot should answer questions about inventory availability. I like the pump by the way. Three years and still going.

Hi. I use it for my in ground pool that has a a tight loop loc cover. I put it on the first step of the pool before the pool is closed. once the water gets above about 1.25 in, the pump is triggered to start pumping. If there's a heavy rainstorm it continues pumping until it gets to 1.25 in and then it stopped. I'm not sure how this pump would work on a tarp tight cover because of the weight of the pump.pushing down on the tarp with water on it. I suppose it could work. I like that it automatically turns on and off. I might use a smaller less powerful type of pump on a tarp cover.

After awhile my pump will not go on on top of the pool cover, but it will work in my hot tub. Any...

Purchased 4 of these for a customer's in ground pool. 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!

This is the perfect pool cover pump. It has a sensitive switching system that allows for water to accumulate and then kicks on to drain. This gives the pump the ability to drain the cover down to almost totally dry! Other pumps do not get the accumulated water down nearly as low as this one. The The included bottom ring, prevents clogging from debris.

After 6 years, I'm still using this pump. Every now and them I have to unscrew the bottom to clean a primer port (use a paper clip) due to some debris getting caught in it. Other than that it's been trouble free and works well and quickly to remain water from the pool cover before opening it.

Just bought it and already doesn't work. It tries to work, but then stops. Does that a few times and then stops altogether. Definitely a bad purchase.
