    Solar cover reel holder for above ground pool

    Hello veteran pool owners. I'm looking for diy ideas for creating an elevated holder (rack?) for storing a solar cover reel at the end of an 18x33 above ground pool. We are in our 60's now and would love to simply lift the rolled reel from the end of the pool to elevated posts? brackets? whatever it may be, when we want to swim. For 15 years we've been hauling the reel around the corner of the deck which holds it when not being used...too much for us now! Any ideas would be helpful.

    Check out pinterest for pictures of PVC cover holders folks have made for their above ground pools. Some very clever ideas there!

    Thank you for the information and for the welcome! I'm afraid that's not a look we want our neighbors to have to see on the back of our pool. I'll keep searching...pinterest is a good resource! Thanks again!
