Great pumpMonday, February 21, 2011
Wish it had included the stand for the pump. The pump works great.
Shorted out after < 1 seasonSunday, February 20, 2011
This is my second Rule pump. First one lasted 6 years, which I understand is pretty good for a pool cover pump. Bought this for a spare one when my first started making grinding noises. The new one went in service about Oct 2010. By February, it was shot -- totally shorts when submerged (doesn't when dry). Also, unlike my old one, the new one stayed on and wouldn't turn off when conditions became icy, so I was always have to manually turn it on as snow melted. From reading other reviews, sounds like this is a common problem now with this pump. Moving to Little Giant ACPC-1700 next.
Stop staying on, shorting when submerged
Pool Cover PumpThursday, September 23, 2010
I have used this pump to empty our cover for one Spring and it worked very well. It does a very good job of screening out debris and pumps at a consistent rate.
It won't burn out if the water is too low.
