?     Asked on 10/2/2020by Ray

Is there a filter/strainer of some kind on this pump to keep debris from clogging it?

A  Answered on 10/19/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hello Ray, unfortunately, this cover pump is not designed t have a strainer attached to it so you may have to net the leaves off of the cover manually first before using this pump.

I have a loop loc cover. I dread the water condition. When I open the pool in the spring. So, I decided to purchase pool cover from your company and it sits over the top of the loop loc. There is some water building up. So, I need a pump to take the water off the top. What do you recommend?

A  Answered on 10/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello, Sue, it would be your personal preference if you want to have the water on the cover and allow the water to slowly drain or you can use this pump to remove the water faster.

Tools Needed


I had a lot of water on my pool cover.

Written on 8/18/2019 by Guest

It was very simple. I took the pump out of the box, screwed my garden hose to the pump, plugged the pump in, and put it in the water on my pool cover. The water began draining immediately.

Were these instructions helpful?
