This is just great for draining all that rainwater from the pool cover before opening the pool for the summer. this is the second one I've owned.
Recently, I was in a jam because my Little Giant decided to stop working after about a year and a half of usage and I needed a pump badly.
I saw this pump and based on the price decided to give it a chance.
It works great. You can't beat it for the price. It moves the water adequately but the placement of the output hose in the top of the pump makes it difficult to stay on its rubber feet. Just lay in it on its side and problem solved.
Good alternative to a more expensive one and if breaks no great loss.
This little pump works like a champ but 500 gal/hr might be a stretch. It is simple to use and let's face it, it's a lot better than using a garden hose and getting mouthfuls of dirty pool water!
...or the MLP as I like to call it! What an awesome little pump! It may have been designed just for pool covers, but I used this pump to actually empty a 15' round pool! Worked like a charm! This is definitely a pump worth the money!
I have no complaints.I have an above ground 24' round pool,and my cover somehow either got a hole I can't detect or is just so old that it became pourous because there was no end to the water being pumped out.After the third day I lifted the cover to find 1' of water left.The pump is rated only for use with water accumulated on the cover,but this little pump had no problem with a large amount of water.I was also skeptical about how long it would take,and was pleasently surprised.It's like the little engine that could and the price was great.
This pump is great it works very good for the top tarp of the pool. It even sucks through the leaves, well worth the buy.
I was very disappointed in this product. We have an in-ground pool and I was hoping to pump out the water that had accumulated on the pool cover from rain storms this past Fall. Before buying this product I read all the reviews on Walmart's website. There were a few negative, but most were very positive. So, being an optimist, I went ahead and ordered the pump. I was looking forward to a great deal on an easy to use pump. Reality hit once I and then a repairman who happened to be at my house, tried to get it to do what it advertises - 500 gallons an hour. The reality is BARELY A DRIBBLE, IF ANYTHING AT ALL WAS DRAWN OUT OF THE POOL. This product DID NOT do what is advertised. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AT ALL! The good news is, when I returned it to a local Walmart, they were very gracious about the return and even credited my credit card for shipping.
My husband and I had tried another pool cover pump last year. We purchased it at a pool store. It took days to clear the water from our pool cover. This year we ordered a pump on line from Walmart. What a difference! This ia a fantastic product. Our pool cover is pumped dry in a few hours. The pump is easy to use. We are very impressed.
It worked great. We used it to drain an 18' above ground pool. Not just the cover. We were also able to use it to start other hoses syphoning and really speed things up. We are very happy with it.
FANTASTIC value and superior construction!
Small but does a good job pumping water off the pool cover. Great price
I recently had to replace the liner in my 33', 25000 gallon pool. I got most of the water out with a hose but when it got down to the bottom foot or two of water, the hose wouldn't work anymore so I purchased this pump as I was up against the wall. I know it says its for pool covers but I dumped it in the middle of the pool and it removed all of the water. It's a little slower than I would have liked, meaning, I'm not sure it pumps 500 GPH as the specs say but all and all, it did the job!
We have a 15' intex pool and needed something to get the last 3-4" of water out of the bottom. This little pump did the job, it was slow but that is ok, for the price you can't beat it.
works pretty good overall. filter/screen plugs up pretty fast & almost stops all flow. works good if cleaned often.
This product works really good. It was easy to install. I'm not sure it pumps as much water at a time as it claims, but for the money, I am happy with this product.
It's a good small pump worth the money. I use it for removing rain water above my pool cover. Since it's not automatic, I have to set it up after every rainfall.
The pump is small but the outflow of water is quite good.
Would recommend, if you are looking for a simple, cheap pump.
While this pump is stated to run at 500 gph, I think it runs closer to 50 when the valve is completey open. I used this to empty the water off the solid cover of my 16x32 in ground pool and it took almost 36 hours to empty out approximately 3000 gallons of water. once it was complete the unit ran dry for a few hours without burning out so it is pretty durable. The price for the unit was excellent, but don't expect this to do it's job quickly. If you have time then this is a good value.
I believe this pump would have been ideal for my use if only I coudl have used it. It connects to a standard garden hose to pump out water, however the adapter to connect it to the garden hose was missing. Why in the world this is a separate piece I do not know. It should be made into the unit. I still wanted to use it so I've attempted to contact the company on several occassions and have yet to receive a call back or e-mail response. I will be forced to simply return this item back to the walmart store and I'll just spend the extra money at Lowes or a local pool shop for my sub. pump needs! My first site-to-store purchase with Wal-mart and it bit me....
does not pump 500gph slightest bit of debris clogs pump
As I have only owned this pump for a few days, I cannot make a definite recomendation. It was easy to setup and worked as soon as I plugged it in. It has worked for two days now very well. It is very quiet and so far has done the job.
