I recently purchased a solar cover and reel for my pool. I have someone coming out to help with assembly in the next week or so. I have a few questions after reading the assembly instructions.
1. Do I lay the cover flat out on the grass and figure out how it attaches to the reel that way or do I float it on the pool?
2. My pool is round. I would like to mount the reel on some 4x6 posts totally off the pool to one side. Where do I mount the posts? How far from pool wall? How high above pool railing? I saw one post that stated 3' from pool wall and 2' above the railing.
3. Where do I attach the straps to the cover? Attaching at the widest point seems like a bad idea with the reel mounted off to the side.
4. Is it worth it to mount off to the end, or should I just install over the middle?
