Removing Water From a Winter Cover

Removing Water From a Winter Cover

Using a cover pump is an effective and efficient way to remove water from a pool cover. Here are some steps you can follow to use a cover pump:

  1. Place the cover pump on the pool cover: Position the cover pump on the surface of the pool cover, ensuring that it is centered and level.
  2. Connect the hose: Connect one end of the hose to the cover pump and the other end to a drain or an area away from the pool where the water can be safely discharged.
  3. Turn on the pump: Plug the cover pump into a power outlet and turn it on. The pump will start to remove the water from the pool cover and discharge it through the hose.
  4. Monitor the pump: Check the pump periodically to ensure that it is working correctly and that the water is being properly discharged.
  5. Turn off the pump: Once the pump has removed most of the water from the pool cover, turn it off and disconnect the hose.
  6. Remove the remaining water: Use a pool brush or broom to sweep any remaining water toward the pump location to ensure the cover is completely dry.

It’s important to note that cover pumps should only be used on solid pool covers, and not on mesh covers, as they can cause damage to the cover. Additionally, you should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using a cover pump and exercise caution to ensure your safety and the safety of others around the pool.
