    Can someone help me find an older post re: DYI PVC solar blanket rack?

    Weather is warming! I know I saw a post last fall (might be older than that) where somebody was experimenting with a hanging rack for a solar cover, but my search skills seem to be lacking. Anybody remember that or any other links to something similar? Almost bought a reel yesterday and then though hmm I wonder if that rack was less money...

    Also interested to see if you find another one.

    I did look around and those were the only ones I could find. I think it was a good idea. 😎

    I almost bought a reel a few weeks ago. Then, I decided to do what some have and cut my cover into three manageable sections. This has worked great for me and I am glad I didn't buy the reel.
