Fits Under Most Diving Boards

Engineered for smaller hotel and motel pools, this reel is designed for heavy use. Its powder-coated heavy gauge aluminum frame is super strong, lightweight, and will never rust or corrode. The large stainless steel crank with handle makes turning the reel easy. Precision stainless steel bearings allow a single person to effortlessly glide the solar blanket off your pool.

Our premium reel is built with a heavy-duty tube that will not sag or flex. It will support solar blankets up to 18-ft. wide by 50-ft. long. Standing only 12" high, this low profile reel can fit under most diving boards for easy storage when not in use. Optional locking casters can be added for easy portability. This reel includes solar reel attachment kit.

I was thinking of purchasing this reel with a 16x36 16mil cover. I saw in a separate Q&A that, when a customer said they had a 16 mil cover, a reel with a 4 (four) inch reel was required/recommended. Will this particular reel support a 16 mil 16"x26" solar cover? Thanks.

John, You can use this with a 16 mil cover.

1) can I use this for a 10 X 50 foot solar blanket and do I need to shorten the tube? 2) can I anchor this to pool deck so it doesn't move around (or into the pool)?

A     Answered on 9/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Phil, The Tubes are telescopic for proper adjustment. The solar reel is equipped with casters that can be locked but does not comes with any anchors. If you would like it anchored you will have to rig something up.

I have had both 3 an 4" aluminum reels and both sag in the middle terribly after no time at all. What is different about yours? I need to know before I purchase. I am almost to the point of saying the heck with it and not even using one. Tks jh

Jim, As stated in the product description "Our premium reel is built with a heavy-duty tube that will not sag or flex. It will support solar blankets up to 18-ft. wide by 50-ft. long and is backed by a 5 year warranty".

If the size of your pool is 16' X 32' what size reel would you order? The reel we have now is 21' and was here when we moved in. We purchased the solar blanket size 16' X 32' last year and it fits in the pool perfectly. Please advise thank you.

A     Answered on 4/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello CarolAnn - You would require a reel that, at a minimum, is designed for 16' pools. The NS970 would be a suitable reel for your pool.
