Well, I just learned a lesson yesterday. For those of you that may be new to solar covers like me, FYI, when there is a fair amount of wind and your solar cover is on, there is the possibility of the reel flying INTO the pool !! Not once, but twice yesterday that happened. I finally rolled the solar cover up on the reel to keep it from flying back into the pool. Just a lesson learned that I thought I would pass along.It's not fun fishing that thing out of the pool.
Hope this helps someone!
