Product Description

Non-corroding aluminum reel 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 at one end makes turning the reel easy. Precision sealed bearings allow a single person to effortlessly glide the solar blanket off your pool.

Our premium reel is built with a heavy-duty 3" tube that will not sag or flex. It will support solar blankets up to 24-ft. wide by 50-ft. long (please note:  this references the maximum blanket size the heavy duty tube can hold, not the size blanket that fits this reel.  This reel is for pools up to 16' wide).  Standing only 12" high, this low profile reel can fit under most diving boards for easy storage when not in use. Includes all straps and necessary hardware. Base and frame are aluminum. Optional locking casters can be added for easy portability.
1-Year warranty.

Tube Diameter: 3"

Max Pool Size:
16 x 32 ft.
Tube Width:
16 ft.

   (4 out of 5 Stars) Great Solar reel

Reviewed By: from Parkersburg, West Virginia ()

Pros: Easy to assemble and use

Cons: Will not fit under my diving board when the the blanket is rolled on it.

Excellent reel for the price and ease of rolling up the blanket for storage or just for the time the pool is open.
