Solar Reel Cover

Pool Size
Just recently bought a 30’ x 18’ splash-a-round pool. The solar cover is massive and heavy. I’m getting a reel installed on the 26th. It’s the one in the picture. Will it hold that heavy weight? Does anyone have a reel for a pool like this? Is this the solution?

(I couldn't get the play button to work, but I found the link in the page source:
As is mentioned in the video, the reel should be closer to the pool, but otherwise, it's perfect!
I would suggest a sliding piece of wood on the side of the 4X4 on the right to lock the handle.
