Little Giant’s uniquely designed automatic pool cover pump is ideal for removing water from all types of pool covers. The APCP-1700 activates in approximately 2" of water and deactivates in approximately 1.5" of water. The pump comes equipped with a low energy consumption, permanent-split capacitor (PSC) motor. The motor is mounted in a sealed, stainless steel housing and cooled by the flow of the pumping fluid over the motor housing. The APCP-1700 has a wide base design for needed stability.
