This pump gets an overall excellent rating from the vast majority of those who have bought it. One of the key points in its favor is the large number of places it can be used and the various different drainage problems that it can solve. If for example you have a swimming pool where the water has turned green and it is also filled with fallen leaves and other garden debris, this pump is for you.
As reviewers point out that you could use a larger more expensive pump, this pump will do the draining job steadily and effectively. The pump comes with its own filter however if the water you are draining is full of debris you can make an effective additional filter of a bucket with holes to limit the amount of debris that hits the pump’s own filters.
Another advantage that sets this pump apart from others is that it will not suffer damage if the drainage area runs dry. While it is important to keep an eye on the pump and check the water level, you will not have to worry about the pump overheating and running the risk of seizing up, should it have no water to pump. This positive feature is available thanks to the pumps internal cooling system. On the con side, and it is difficult to find criticisms of this pump, the power cord is considered to be a bit inflexible particularly if you need to use the pump in cold weather conditions.
Setting this pump aside from many of its competitors is the minimum level of water that the pump can handle. While one critic claimed that it needed a minimum base water level of 1 inch, others have stated that it would work fine with just 1/8th of an inch of standing water.
Superior Pump 91250 can be considered an excellent buy at its price performance point. If you need a more heavy duty pump, prepare to spend more for one with a superior performance to this pump. However for everyday requirements, even acting as a back up to another pump such as a sump pump, you will find this pump hard to beat. Not only is its performance well above average, its flexibility and ability to be used in many different situations is also a real bonus!
