    Solar Reels

      Great Solar Reel
      I installed it today and it is the greatest product I have ever purchased. Operation is smooth and quiet.

      Easy to assemble and use
      I have tried several options in solar blankets, the crank type and then the solar rings, BUT this is by far the easiest for 1 person to use of all of them. I am very pleased with this item

      Worked great
      We installed the remote solar reel early this summer and it worked well, once we changed the fuse, for 7 weeks. It has stopped working although the batteries and fuses seem to be fine. We are disappointed because it is such a handy thing!

      Works great. So much easier
      I bought this for our 20x40' in ground pool. It's our first solar cover reel and I must say it was worth the price. What used to take two people about 10 minutes to do with a lot of hassle, now takes only one person less than five minutes. I chose this reel because I wanted something that would last and was tall enough to roll over the diving board with the cover reeled up. I also like that it has a 5yr warranty when many of the others only had a 1 yr or 3yr at the most. I am a little leery of ... read more the pole as it sags in the middle with or without the cover reeled up, but 20 ft is quite a distance for poke to remain perfectly straight and rigid without being made of solid steel. The straps for hooking up the cover to reel worked great and look like they will hold on well. It took a little bit to setup the main polevel as it required some drilling to customize the length to fit yur pool. It was well worth the effort however and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to a friend.

      Held up to the winters
      Great reel...no issues, assembly was fairly easy but needed to drill my own holes, no big deal. Much better than other reels friends or I have had in the past. Left outside during winters, still in perfectly good working condition after 4 years.

      Average roller for the price
      I have only used the roller for a few days but here is my experience so far. 1. The assembly process was tougher than it needed to be. The directions are horrible. You do need to drill to set the length but it is not clear. This could be assemblied so much quicker if the dirrections were more than a page and a half. 2. I have a 40 foot long cover and this does roll that cover up but I was a little surprised that it took some muscle. With improved bearings it would be a great product. I am ... read more sure that if you are not in better than average shape you can do it. My 66 year old father and 27 year old sister stuggeled to do on their own. 3. Very stable 4. Overall it is good product but I am not sure for the money it is worth it. A few small changes and it would be something I highly recommend, not sure I do right now.

      Velcro is useless, but there is a way around it.
      Do not waste time with the Velcro! If you have an old set of straps, you can reuse the buckles (or purchase extra buckles that are compatible) and wrap the straps securely around your reel. Simply start by threading the non-Velcro end through the buckle around your reel, tighten it, then following the remaining instructions. You will never have to worry about Velcro coming off and it works amazingly well! There is plenty of strap length to do this, but it does require two buckles per strap which ... read more is not included.

      Good quality
      These straps hold up the best! We've tried others and they started to disintegrate from sun and chlorine. Because our pool is kidney shaped the directions were helpful to measure and set up the straps for the solar cover to roll up properly.

      Easy Installation
      This is only the 2nd set of straps we have used on our solar cover. This set was faster and easier to install. The 1st set (not the same brand) started to fray and come apart in the 2nd season - so we will see how long this set lasts. Hopefully more than 2 seasons.

      Great idea but flimsy brackets
      The saddle does indeed make removal and installation of the solar cover a simple and speedy 1 person operation. However the brackets that attach the saddles, or hooks, to the top of the pool edge are made of plastic and break extremely easily. I just re-attached to the pool edge using electrical ties, and it works great, and a bonus is that when the cover is on, you can fold the hooks to the side of the pool out of the way. Someone creative could fabricate brackets out of metal. The product is a ... read more bit over priced for what you get, but I would spend the money again for the ease and time saved in 1 person cover removal and install.

      Keeps everything neat and off the ground
      Product works as listed. The only thing I didn't like is I had to drill 10 holes into the rail to attach, but the screws are barely visible. It's easy to take the cover off with one person, but two is much easier to get it on instead of one. I have a thicker cover though with bubble type material underneath, so it's hard to pull up without getting stuck on the lip of the pool. So far it seems to hold the weight of the cover, hopefully it lasts for many seasons.

      Solar Saddles are GREAT !
      I have an 18 x 33 oval above ground pool and installed the saddles on both ends of the pool .I cut the solar cover in half and store half on each end making it much easier for one person to handle the cover born on and off !

      Excellent except for one thing
      Bought this about a month ago and overall it is excellent and a good value. Works well and looks like it will hold up good for many years. My only complaint is the plastic attachment clips for the cover. They have very poor fitting plastic threaded plugs. I deformed them with vice grips to tighten the grip and now they hold fine. Other than the clips I am satisfied though I may buy another handle to attach so that it can be rolled up from either side.

      Great reel
      Great unit, bearings make rolling and unrolling very simple. Very little effort is need to reel in the 38 ft cover

      Easy Operation
      Great reel! Would recommend casters for oval pools. They allow the reel to move, keeping the cover centered. My last reel was a plastic, stationary unit, sold here. Always a hassle to get the cover even and the sun ate up the plastic in about 6 years.

      This roller is great!
      We got this roller this year to replace another that has sagged in the middle and broken after two summers. The other roller was hard to work with, this roller is stable, has a low center of gravity, locks to the deck when you don't want it to roll, rolls well when you do want it to roll. I wish I knew two years ago to get this roller. This roller comes with the best cover attachment equipment that I've seen.

      Hopefully the last reel we need to buy
      we have a 24x48 pool, this reel is perfect. 1 person can manage, but 2 people makes covering and uncovering a breeze. We have had this reel for 2 years now, it has shown no wear. We do put it away in the harsh Pa. winters. Rolls very smoothly, we uncover pool toward steps, then push back out of the way.

      Very easy to use
      I just bought this reel this year. At first I tried to use it without drilling into my patio to anchor it, but that didn't work. Once I anchored to the patio it worked like a charm. So easy to roll-up the solar blanket now - even my seven year old daughter does it. We are very happy with this reel!

      Worth Every Penny
      When my 16 x 34 fiberglass pool was installed last year, the $10,000 to $12,000 it would cost to have an automatic pool cover installed was not an option. Needless to say, I soon tired of pulling my solar cover on and off and then laying it to the side. This took up all of my usable space on one length of the pool. Once I started looking for solar cover reels, I was pleased to find that the Pool Boy III was within my budget. I have been using my Pool Boy III for a little over a month, and it has ... read more been worth ever penny. It fits directly underneath my diving board and looks very neat and tidy. In addition, I don't have to worry about pulling and tugging with the fear of ripping my cover. You do need to buy the Solar Reel Attachment Kit for In Ground Pools though. Otherwise, you will not be able to secure the cover to the reel. The only con is that I am starting to see a few rusty areas here and there. If it lasts for many years to come, I will have no complaints.

      Life saver!!
      I've been using a hand crank reel for years and when it was time for a new one I opted for this one and boy I have not been disappointed! It's so easy to use! I don't know how I did it without this!! I'm in love!!!

      Just purchased this battery operated reel. I was going to purchase the Pool Boy 2 with an electrical plug but I had no outlets nearby and an extension cord would be unsightly. I'm so glad I bought this battery powered reel. It was easy to install and set up, it took me and my son 2 hours to assemble. The reel is solid and sturdy, it doesn't wobble with my 20' X 45' heavy 16mil solar cover. That little battery powers up the cover in both directions in under a minute. The only drawback is the ... read more that there is only one remote and it must be re-activated with each use by pressing both buttons for a few seconds as a safety I guess. If the battery holds charge for two weeks before recharging , I'll be satisfied as it only takes 6 hours to fully charge. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase as it was also delivered within 3 days from purchase. Thank you IntheSwim.com
