    Question regarding mounting solar reel

    I have a 18ft round above ground pool with curved rails on top. Solar reel mounting requires flat surface. Any conversion kits available or do you have any suggestions? Would like to mount to pool rails vs. using posts. Thanks!

    Re: Question regarding mounting solar reel

    Sorry, no one replied to you. I have an 18 ft intex pool so I don't have the standard above ground pool top rail. I thought about buying a reel and mounting to posts, but I didn't want to see anything above the pool, so I built my own solar cover holder out of PVC pipes. I've tweaked the design a bit since my first attempt, but so far, it's working out great and is easily removable for winter.

    I mounted mine behind the pool, using wood. Mine is similar to the one cowboy casey did. The link to the page with some photos is below ...
