Having a swimming pool requires heavy-duty maintenance especially during rainy and wintry weather. These are the times of the year when you need to install a swimming pool cover to keep rain water and melted snow from collecting inside the pool. However water can easily collect on top of the pool cover too.
If left unchecked, this will hurt your pool cover and cause damage to the walls of your pool as well. Investing in a special type of pump helps to eliminate this problem, keeping your pool cover and swimming pool in pristine condition throughout the year.
Choosing a electric swimming pool covers utility pump
While you can always drain the collected water manually, an electronic pump can accomplish the work easily for you. Using a hose in draining the water can be time consuming and physically exhausting, and doing all the work yourself may be hazardous during the winter season.
This is why many home owners use a cover to easily siphon off the water. If you have problems with excessive water collecting on your swimming pool, an automatic pump can drain all the water away even without manual intervention.
Manual or automatic/electronic?
Before buying a swimming pool pump, you need to understand first that these pumps come in the manual and automatic or electronic varieties. Manual pumps require monitoring and manually turning the pumps on or off, before and after use. While this demands some effort on your part, manual pumps are priced cheaper than the automatic ones.
