Just getting started in this whole pool thing. Im sure I will have several noob questions over the next few months, so I'll apologize now.
I am in the process of getting the pool installed right now. It should be ready the first part of July. My pool is an in-ground, fiberglass pool which is kidney shaped and measures 12' X 24'.
I am going to purchase a solar cover to use with it but I'm not sure if I really need a reel. The size of the cover is probably small enough and light enough to manually remove/replace and fold up. I might be missing something here though. I'm wondering if the reel not only helps roll it up, but if it also helps with longevity that may be affected by folding and un-folding it?
