I used it for a 20x40 foot solar cover that was modified to fit the pool. Rolls and unrolls easily. Some of the instructions were unclear. You can鈥檛 put straps in the center portion of the roller after assembly. But, even using full width of roller it works fine.
Seems to work just fine.
Easier with two people as it will easily tip.
Astonishingly, a short (under 5?tall), overweight, out-of-shape, older woman (68 years) can crank this and remove my solar pool cover in less than 90 seconds with minimal effort. I do this 2-3 times per week (for swimming and/or pool maintenance). I love it this reel and how it helps me to conserve water (and heat up my pool water without the need for electricity or gas) with minimal effort on my part.
Pretty easy to assemble. 21' is perfect for an 18' wide pool.
Paid more for this type of reel but in the long run itʻll be worth it. Having the wheel makes the rolling out/on of the cover with minimal effort and the wheels make it easy to maneuver by just myself.
Reel seems solid and sturdy. Assembly was pretty easy. Figuring out how to fit all the tubes together to get just the length I needed and then drilling the longer screws in took the most time. The company was great. Responsive and helpful. I feel like I did well in this purchase.
I really like the product. However, the set screws fir the tube did strip out and I had to use the self tapping screws to hold them together. But, great so far, and looking forward to an easy summer with regards to my solar cover process.

I should have bought this a year ago! Very easy to assemble with clear directions. The roller is very sturdy and rolls the cover with ease! When not in use, the wheels and handle make it easy to stow on the side of the house. In winter we will add the roller cover to keep it dry.
