Yes, it’s that time of year.  Your pool cover will now become a per­ma­nent fix­ture in your back yard. A qual­ity pool cover is a big invest­ment.  So be sure to main­tain the cover by remov­ing water build-up from the rains and (dare I say) snow­storms, with a high per­form­ing  pool cover pump.

What pool cover pumps do is get rid of the water that builds up on your pool cover. Very sim­ple. Prices for pool cover pumps can range from $10 to $150 and up.  Man­ual pumps, while less expen­sive, have to be man­u­ally turned on and off.  If you ever leave town in the win­ter, this could be a risky choice.  Auto­matic pool cover pumps fea­ture an auto­matic on/off switch that will turn on as water accu­mu­lates and turn off when the cover is pumped dry.  Not a bad trade off for the higher price tag.

Whichever you choose, a pool cover pump is an extremely impor­tant win­ter­iz­ing tool for your back­yard swim­ming pool and can lead to cleaner, faster pool open­ing in spring.
