Don't Buy This Pump!!!!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

This pump seldom works. It will be pumping fine then quit. It easily clogs with debris. I had a Little Giant that lasted 12 years this thing didn't last 12 months...

Worst Ever

Saturday, March 10, 2012

I may be the one needing a review. I have bought three of these pumps and not one has made it more than a month. I have returned one through Home Depot just to find the same result; that it would cycle once and then shut off. Eventually all three would not even do that. Flotec should redesign or just discontinue this disaster of a product.

Even the price is high

Ask Me Later

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I will be happy to review this product when I get it to actually work. Obviously my extension cord is sub-par and my 5/8 water hose to small for this extra-sensitive piece of machinery. If I plug it directly into an outlet, hold it by the cord in the water without attaching a hose to the outlet, it works GREAT... But add either the extension cord OR the hose and it insists on cycling off and back on for a split second every few minutes. I think my pool cover will be empty around May 6th by my latest calculation...

Nothing so far

For it to work as advertised annd actually pump some water

Flotec Pool Cover Pump

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Overall not good. It pumps good when working. It clogs frequently, which requires unscrewing three screws on the bottom and taking it apart to clean. When there is heavy rain I end up having to use another utility pump (not a cover pump) because this pump clogs so frequently when there is alot of water bringing in any loose stuff. This is about my fourth cover pump in 12 years and the only one that has clogged.

Pumps good when it pumps

Better screen that didn't require taking the pump apart to brush it off

Great Service, Good Product

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Despite careful handling that includes removal from the pool cover when not in operation, this cover pump acts oddly. It runs sporadically rather than continually pumping accumulated water-- and then shutting-off. When the pump has drained the cover, it will continue to run for a few seconds (it's clearly audible from a distance) before shutting off again, automatically, in continual 3-minute cycles. The only way to stop this useless cycling that will wear it out is to pull the plug-- the water level sensor is not good. Otherwise, the price was fairly reasonable, if these quirks don't indicate that longer-term viability will be an issue. Easy to hook up to a threaded drain hose, and it pumps strongly while it is in the "on" mode. Drill Spot, on the other hand, delivered exactly as they promised, on-time.

Price, effectiveness while running, easy connection to drain hose

It has a very odd operating cycle. Even with substantial water around it (and no clog of the filter) it will shut off awhile before automatically resuming operation. Doesn't sense absence of water once it's pumped it all out, therefore continues to run for no reason in short bursts

This Pump Sucks Because It Doesn't Suck

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Just bought it today. Its cycles on for 1 minute and shuts down. It comes back on about 2 minutes later. Can't pump a pool cover with this kind of performance.

Awful Product

Saturday, March 12, 2011

This product is awful! There are so many "protections" in place that it is constantly shutting down. I have had two Rule pool covers for my in ground pool and they each lasted about 5 years. For some reason, I tried this Flotec Model. It has been on the cover for 5 days and I have already ordered another Rule pump. When I contacted the Flotec support group, they informed me that I need to plug this pump into a non-gfi plug with no extension cord!!!! The power cord is 24 feet long! Really! They designed a pool cover pump that can not operate reliably when using an extension cord! Really! They were not apologetic. Stay Away!!!!!

Don't Buy It

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Worked fine yesterday, but today decided to keep stopping. I took off the bottom, nothing to clean out. Everything looks clean. Impeller is spinning. But this pump will just not stay on. Start up for a few seconds then stops. Then starts and stops. I think this pump is not going to be very useful anymore. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

Badly made, it would be better if it worked!

Flotec Just Clogs Up Instead Of Flowing

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

Bought this pump with great expectations. When it works (until the filter system plugs up), it is a beast. Problem is that yard debris and dog hair in the water on the pool cover make it through the wide filter then ends up in the interior filter all collected and clogging up the water. Pump still cycles, but it doesn't pull any water. So, every other day I have to go out and unscrew the bottom assembly, clean off the screen filter, then reassemble. Cool engineers decided to use metal screws for the assembly. Uh, it's a pump that sits in water. So, the metal screws are beginning to corrode now. Would be awesome if the designers had thought through design to put a finer screen on the exterior system rather than interior and find a way to assemble without the use of metal screws. Save your money.

Power and flow when working

Flotec Pool Cover Pump with Sensor

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Using for one months now. Easily keeps up with the rainfall. Actually I don't have to think about it. The internal sensor is great. No more time spent checking water level status. I would recommend attaching two furring strips with electrical ties in a "cross pattern" to keep pump at approprite level on cover.

Pool Cover Pump

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Works fine except it runs on the 2 1/2 minute cycle and goes off for 5 secs. Eventually it drains the pool cover but does not run continuous like the instructions said. And it runs this cycle even if the cover is dry.

It eventually drains the cover

Have a float value that turns it on when there is water present and does not run when it is dry

Well built pump. Constructed of noticeably better materials than other pool cover pumps in the price range. Extra long heavy duty cord.

How well it was constructed

Price could always be better
