    What size of solar cover reel

    Apologies, as this may seem silly.. My pool is 16x32, and I'm seeing a lot of solar cover reels that say up to 16' wide pool. Would you guys suggest I go with one that is 16' or go with one that is longer, say 18' or 20'?

    Thank you!

    Rockys Reels recommends going 1 foot wider for strength and to give yourself some install wiggle room...I know cause I asked them in an email exchange. BTW, I just bought one of their system, seems well made, 10 yr warranty and excellent reviews for "sole" rollers...aka 1 person operation.
