    What size Solar Cover Reel Do I need?

    My in-ground fiberglass pool is 14' x 38'. What size reel do I need for this? "Most" seem to be in the 21'-22' range..., I don't need or have room for one that size. I don't want to spend a lot of money, let's say I'm frugal, so advice on brand/model would be greatly appreciated.

    What have you found on Google?

    Being frugal- could you make something? It looks like something one could design easily enough, but hey, I'm a design idea person and leave the actual labor to Skippy. LOL

    I saw some on Google that are just the ends, and also one that was 16". They're out there. Good luck!

    My pool if 16' wide and I have a GLI hurricane reel. It's the only one I've tried but seems to work well. The width is adjustable during assembly. The spindle is telescopic.
