IMPORTANT AUTOMATIC PUMP INSTRUCTIONS:
FOR SOLID COVERS THAT DO NOT HAVE DRAIN PANELS
The automatic cover pump supplied with your solid cover is used to remove water that accumulates on your LOOP-LOC cover. In addition to water accumulating due to rain and/or melting snow, water may seep up through the material seams during the winter months when snow and ice force the cover to come into contact with the pool water.
Left unchecked: there is a strong possibility that a substantial amount of pool water may be pumped out of the pool. Once the cover begins to exceed the depressed level of 16" below the deck, excess stress is placed on the cover, hardware, pool, coping and deck. At this point, cover/hardware failure is possible, which will void the cover warranty. Loop-Loc is not responsible for any damage that may occur due to this condition.
If this pool-pumping condition exists: it is necessary to correct the pools' water level immediately. By removing accumulated snow from the skimmer box, you will be able to check to see if the water levels have dropped and if additional water needs to be added into the swimming pool. If uncertain, please contact your swimming pool professional immediately.
When snow and ice accumulates and remains on the solid cover it is recommended to disconnect the pump if it will be frozen in ice for an extended period of time. It is important to immediately reconnect the pump once the snow & ice begin to melt.
When leaving your home unattended for extended periods of time: it is highly recommended to have your swimming pool professional periodically check your water levels, or if that is not possible to have a friend or neighbor check on and fix the above conditions.
