    Hydro Tools Solar Cover Reel

    Anyone using those? What are the reviews? It cost half of what I will have to pay at other stores. $141 for 30 ft solar cover. No body come even closer to that price.

    I cannot use that. My pool is 30ft diameter and my wife won't be able to lift it with the cover on. Will be too heavy.

    I paid $20 for a used one, with out the cover though. It was an awesome deal and works great. $141, and it come with cover and reel? If so, that is a good price.

    They usually go for more than that, so your doing okay for a new one. I would keep looking for a used one.
