When the solar cover is rolled up, removing it from the pool area is a breeze. Heavy duty wheels on one end and a secure stable "T" base on the other. Simply lift the "T" base end and roll the entire assembly across your deck away from the pool to your storage area. Easy installation. Made with non-corrosive materials--built to last! For Pools up to 22' Wide.

Excellent Review by Jackie
I lurched the pro pick solar cover reel and couldn't be happier with it! It makes opening and closing cover a breeze.
Plus, there is the added benefit of a warranty. The handle broke on the retracting wheel and doheny is sending me one free of charge! Thank goodness that there are still some places with great customer service!
Great Solar Reel Review by Christina
Wish I'd have purchased this years earlier. Other than the lack of directions, this solar reel is fabulous and one person can open and close the pool easily. We cut a new cover and attached the ends to the reel so it fits like a glove and never blows off the pool anymore. It has a nice lock. Is heavier than it appears and more difficult to roll away, but that's ok. It's sturdy and was a good choice for the money.
Gets the Job Done Review by hulithedane
I had the same experience as many others -- instructions are lousy. Fortunately, the man of the house is both handy and creative and got the job done without too much head-scratching. My pool is 12W x 34L with 6-10ft of pool deck surround. We had to use a hack saw to cut the aluminum tubing to fit within the pool area. So collect your tools first before starting the job. Final result is quite satisfactory. It is easy to operate but because some of the parts are not particularly rugged I'm doing so with some gentleness and care.
pleased Review by dm
first, couldn't be happier with timely delivery...placed order on a Mon eve and received on Wed...reviews about poor instructions were true but not difficult for a 50+ year old woman to figure out..works great so far for my 16 x 32 pool (above ground with decking surround)...good product for the money!
Works Fantastic - Great Price Review by Jersey Pool
I just purchased this reel cover a few days ago and I'm completely satisfied with my purchase. The reel is very sturdy and there is absolutely no sagging at all in the middle of the reel from my 16' X 32' solar cover - I have the reel set at 18' wide. I can easily unroll the cover and the base does not move at all in the process and rolling it up is just as easy and stable. My guess is that this reel would easily handle a longer cover or heavier duty one with no problems or sagging. The tubing is very strong.
The instructions were a little confusing on a few points but were easily figured out by looking at the pictures. As others have said the reel will show up in two different packages, one of them showed up on Monday and the other showed up on Wednesday via FEDEX Ground. Also, at first I thought I was missing a tube since the instructions said there should be 3 tubes but then I realized the third one was inside one of the other tubes, duh! I thought the chords that attached to the solar cover itself were not going to work very well but it turns out they work just fine. I used a screwdriver to punch a hole in the cover and inserted the chord through it which worked just fine.
This is a great product which I purchased based off the other reviews on this site and like somebody else said there is no reason to spend more money on an expensive reel because this one works great, is very sturdy and is stainless steel (even the screws are stainless). Also, the reel is pretty lightweight. I had no problem picking the reel up by myself to move it to backyard to put by the pool (I couldn't use the wheels because the space was too narrow to turn the reel).
