Solar pool covers save energy and water when you use them. They have to be removed before you use your pool. It can be difficult for one person to remove the cover or put it back in place. That's why you need a solar cover reel. The reels make it easy to remove your cover and put it in place.
There are reels available for in ground pools and above ground pools with full decks. Most reels are portable so they can be moved for winter storage. The cover reels keep your cover or blanket wrapped tightly keeping it clean and out of the way. They also extend the life of your solar cover which may be damaged by pulling or folding.
There are a number of options available for solar reels. You may choose an automatic reel. The automatic reel operates on water power. You simply hook up a garden hose to the reel and flip the lever.
It takes the automatic reel about one minute to roll up your solar pool cover and the water it uses goes back into your pool. This takes all the hassle out of removing your cover and makes it simple to put the cover back in place when you are done.
Other reels operate with a hand crank. These are easy to use and work on any pool which has a full deck. Rolling your solar pool cover onto the reel is a snap and it can be done by any adult. No help is needed.
When you put your cover away for the winter, you may also purchase a tarp which rolls around the reel and fastens to protect your solar cover from tears and damage while it is being stored.
