Good...but,

Pros: lightweight, moderately esay to assemble.priced reasonable
Cons: tube sags in middle, maybe the4" tube would be better but I wasn't offered that option
"I have an 8yr warranty solar cover the best and heaviest, pool is 20 x 40, the tube is not stout enough to support the cover. There is a lot of dip in the middle which makes the wheels camber in significantly. I like the low profile so it fits under the dive board, but it is so low that the cover binds on the concrete the last 8-10 feet of winding.
This unit would probably be just fine for a thiner cover"

Pros: works well, sits low to ground
Cons: none
"I like this product, it sits low to the ground so can fit under the diving board. Also I love that if I am the only one home, I can still take the cover off and enjoy some time in the pool because this reel is very easy to use with just one person."

Solar cover Reel,

Pros: Price
Cons: Difficult to put together
"Overall this is a good reel. Being able to reel the cover from both sides is nice to have. It was though to put together, as you have to drill holes in the metal rod that holds the cover. The reel is light weight and easy to move. But the weight has a downfall. As I have to put a foot on the reel when I start to unreel the cover, because if I don't the reel will slide on the concrete and not unravel the cover.
Overall this is a good reel"

"What a joke. The reel is too light weight to actually unroll the cover. The wheels just come out of the base and rolls right along with you while you are pulling it. It can't be rolled up with just one person (the whole idea of a solar reel)."
