Model # NS980
Warranty 7 Year
DESIGNED FOR LARGE COMMERCIAL POOLS, THIS REEL IS SUPER STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT, AND EFFORTLESS TO USE!
Our deluxe commercial reel is the finest solar reel we sell. Designed for rugged use by large commercial pools like YMCAs and universities, we have made this exceptional reel available for private pool owners who want the best. Featuring an extra heavy gauge powder-coated aluminum frame, this reel can easily support up to a 60-ft. long solar blanket. This frame is lightweight, yet strong, and will never rust or corrode. The big 3-1/2"-diameter anodized aluminum tubing is reinforced and will not sag or bind like reels of lesser quality. Stainless steel bearings and hand crank at one end ensures effortless removal of your solar blanket.
The reel stands 24" high and allows you to operate it comfortably without kneeling. Because of its height, it clears most diving boards and easily rolls out of the way on its large locking casters. Our commercial reel comes complete with casters, blanket attachment kit, and is easy to assemble. The 2" wheels are spaced 16" apart from one another.7-Year Warranty.
Tube Diameter: 3.5"

Does this come with all the hardware to set up and use, like all the straps, and do the wheels lock?
Hi. Yes, all of the hardware is included. The caster does have a wheel lock feature.
I have an 18' wide pool. Which of your commercial in ground reels should I order. Two models cover 18' and I cannot see any difference between the two so I am guessing price is the only consideration?
Hello, There are 2 types that would fit, Commercial Solar Reel I/G Pools 14'-18' Wide - NS980 is only for 14'-18' wide. Commercial Solar Reel I/G Pools 18'-20' Wide - NS983 is only specifically for 18'-20', both reels are for 18' so either one would work for you. To have a little more space I would recommend 18'-20' only because if you wanted to extend to have a little more room around your pool you have the room to extend.
Can this reel be used with a 16' round pool? Can 1 person move it?
Dona, Unfortunately, this will not work an an above ground pool. You can view our above ground solar reels here.
Can this reel support 16mil cover for pool 18-35'? Without sagging? And can I insert my old 3 1/4" tube into 3 1/2" to store them away and make your tubes stronger?
Hello Ana, This solar Reel features an extra heavy gauge powder-coated aluminum frame. This reel can easily support up to a 60-ft. long solar blanket so this should be no problem for your 35 ft blanket. This frame is lightweight, yet strong, and will never rust or corrode. The big 3-1/2"-diameter anodized aluminum tubing is reinforced and will not sag or bind like reels of lesser quality. This solar reel cannot be modified to fit a 3 1/4" tube as it is designed for the tube that comes with it.
If I am using 12 mil solar cover @ 15' wide, how many feet can this reel handle?
Ray,This commercial solar reel can support up to a 60ft long solar blanket.
what is the shortest length this can be adjusted to? My pool is only 14' wide x 38' long....
Hi Reubin, The Commercial Solar Reel I/G Pools 14'-18' Wide can be used on a pool as small a 14' wide. It can also work for your 14'x38' size pool.
is there a hand crank at each end
Hi Kevin, This Solar reel has one crank and bearings on the other side.
