Pentair, maker of all kinds of pool equipment, has recently just come out with a new submersible pump that is perfect for removing water from pools, fountains, garden ponds, pool covers…and more.
Its unique water level switch won't bind or catch in a pool cover. A removable skirt prevents unwanted tipping during important pumping jobs. The pump's simple, robust design allows it to function well in a wide variety of utility pumping applications. This submersible drainer pump is UL listed and CSA approved.
*Constructed of high-impact, corrosion resistant plastic for durable performance.
*Screened inlet and base prevent large solids from entering, protecting the pump and assuring long life.
*UL Listed and CSA Approved.

This unique pump is fully automatic in operation. The "smart" controller starts the pump every 2 1/2 minutes and causes it to run for 5 seconds. If it senses that there is no water to the pump, it stops. If it senses water, it continues to run until the water is pumped down to 1/4" deep, and then it stops. It then goes into a 7-minute quick-detection cycle, starting 4 times the first minute, twice the second minute, and once a minute for the next 5 minutes. If by the last check it has not detected water, it resumes its cycle (running 5 seconds every 2 1/2 minutes) until it senses water again.
It's faster and easier, which saves time and maybe even money... JT
