    How to Store a Solar Cover Reel When Using Pool??

    I have a really dumb question. How does everyone store their solar cover reel while using the pool (above ground - round)? I bought the reel last year but never got around to actually using it. I was thinking of buying or making some large U shaped hooks to attach to the fence near the pool or possibly installing 2 metal chain link fence posts by the edge of my property for the socket of the reel to sit in? I have this type of reel seen in the attached picture.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Was using Trichlor with an inline chlorinator, but switched to BBB last year and water has been perfect ever since! (after draining 75% of the water to get rid of the bonus CYA that the Trichlor provided!) Thanks TFP!!!!

    Do a search using the Google search at the bottom left hand coner here, there is someone that made some really neat cool looking hangers out of PVC I think, they are a great idea.
