Installed on 4x6 post versus on pool railings for 12x24 solar cover. No sagging, even for 16 mil cover. Knob on top of reel is helpful to prevent sudden rotation when need to stop periodically for adjustments. Solid product.
I have a 16x32 intex pool. It was a total pain in the but to remove the solar cover to go swimming. Now with this product even my kids can wind it up.
Sturdiness seems good. It's 2 aluminum 6 sided bars that slip in to each other. And then you have choice of set screws on 3 sides or self tapping screws.i went with self tapping screws. All hardware is stainless.
Easy to assemble and easy to use. Takes two people to install. Would recommend.
This was fairly easy to assemble. the only issue is I wish there were better instructions on attaching to the rod. I don't know what the Velcro tabs were for. I did have to get some small bungee cords to keep the solar cover wrapped around the rod otherwise the wind unravels some of it.
All parts were in package, no damage. Fairly straight forward instructions. FAST shipping, told about 2 weeks, got it in 4 days.Longevity is yet to be seen, as I have not yet put it to use.And looks nice.
It's my first aluminum reel, I am very satisfied with the reel. It's just what I needed.
This is a solid pool reel, and doesn't sag with the cover attached nover the expanse of our 12ft wide pool.
It would work well with an above ground pool. Company was easy to work with
Great pool cover reel. Works great on my Costco 2021 Bestway above ground pool. My pool dimensions are 22' 12' x 4'.
