    Has anyone used the "Solar Roller"?

    Check out the website: here. I use a solar cover on my pool during the winter months to try to eliminate as much evporation as possible. However we do not have space around our pool for a normal cover reel. I was wondering if anyone on this forum has used this system and how well does it work.

    I have one and it works fine for me. The whole key is cutting the cover to make it more managable. I can remove my cover in about 3 minutes using the roller by myself, and while I can deploy the cover by myself, it is much easier and quicker to deploy it with 2 people.

    I have one as well and I would echo jmas65's comments. Roll up seems easier than the unroll. Sometimes I need to adjust the cover by hand.
