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 4" tube that will not sag or flex. It will support solar blankets up to 24-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. Includes all straps and necessary hardware. Base and frame are aluminum. Optional locking casters can be added for easy portability.
Tube Diamter: 4"
We have a 30' round pool that has a deck all the way around it. We want to use a cover reel but I don't want to have to purchase a 30' industrial grade that could handle 30' X 100'+ . . . I don't want to pay almost as much for a reel as we did the pool! Lol!!! HELP!!!
Hi Kim, I would suggest going with the largest above ground solar reel which is the 28' Solar Reel and using a 28' round solar blanket. You would have 1' of the pool which is not covered by the blanket but this would be insignificant in terms to heat loss. Going this route would save you quite a bit of money vs. going with a large commercial reel.
How high is this unit?
The height on this reel is 12" without the casters/wheels and 15 3/4" with the casters/wheels. The base on the reel measures 16" Long x 2" Wide.
Do I need to purchase a strap kit with the reel to attach the solar blanket to the reel?
No, you would not need to purchase a stap kit. The reel includes all straps and necessary hardware.
(4 out of 5 stars) Great Solar reel

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.
