I have a in ground solar cover reel from GLI (their Pro Series) and I am ready to attach the "straps" to the actual cover.
They show two ways of doing it, one if your reel is in the middle of pool and the other if at the end.
Even though my reel will be at the end, it seems the install through the "fold" of cover material will be MUCH stronger and I can't see any downside of that method. My silly PB ordered me a super heavy 16mm cover thinking it was better, so it is quite heavy.
Please let me know if you all agree or if I am not thinking clearly.
