During the winter months when your pool is not being used, water will accumulate on the top of the swimming pool cover. It can be a frustrating and expensive job removing the water. There are a couple of things you can do about this problem. First, you might just dump the water into the pool, which will create a huge cleaning job later, or you can hire a company to come out and pump the water off the cover for you. This is the easier choice, but it can also be very expensive because of the high hourly rate that these companies charge.
Swimming pool owners have another choice that many are not even aware of. This alternative is to purchase a swimming pool pump. Swimming pool pumps work quickly and efficiently, and cost between $80.00 and $100.00. This will save you a ton of money in just a few years. You can pay double or even triple to a pool company to come out and pump it for you.
Many of these pool pumps are compact, lightweight and easy to use. They can pump up to 205 gallons per hour or more and they shut off automatically when the job is done. Some of the pool pumps work submersed for better efficiency and they come in non-corrosive housing made from Nylon. Other pool pumps are thermally protected so that they will not overheat after a few hours of use and can be used for the really big jobs.
When you invest in a swimming pool you are really getting more out of your swimming pool. You do not have to wait until the weather warms up to drain the cover. You can use your Best variable Speed pool pump all year long and when it comes time to go swimming, you’ll be ready to just remove the cover and jump in!
