HURRICANE "PREMIUM QUALITY" LOW PROFILE SOLAR REEL
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 20' 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.
Tube Diameter: 3"
*Recommend using a 4” Solar Blanket Storage System for pools 600 sq. ft. and larger when used with thicker mil solar blankets.

Hi, Paul. This specific reel system does not have casters or have the means to use casters. You will have to purchase a reel system that has casters or modify it to use casters.
My pool is 14x30 16ml solar cover. what is the best reel to buy?
Hello, I would recommend the NS974 solar reel.
Looking at the video, It does not appear the reel will fit under a diving board. Also,is the NS974 the only option for a 16 Mil Cover?

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.

Reviewed By: Fred T. from Foley AL ()
Pros: attractive, light weight, sturdy, easy to use
I now own three of these reels they are great looking very functional sturdy but light weight I bolted mine to the pool deck so I don't have to worry about alignment with the pool and don't have to hold them down while reeling in the cover
(4 out of 5 stars) Pool Cover Reel
Reviewed By: Cookie from Port Washington, New York ()
Pros: Easy to use -
Cons: A little difficult to build.
does the trick in winding up the solar pool cover and keeping it neat and easy to use a second time. A little difficult to put together, and highly recommend fastening to ground if you can - although it works well not fastened.
