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.
