Really great product,

Pros: Easy to use and easy to install. High quality components.
"We finally decided to order this because our manual reel broke last year. I'm so glad we did! We were a little worried about the cost- but using it for just a month we're so happy with it already.
I can finally take the cover on and off myself- which will be great during the summer when the kids swim every day. And I'm sure it will help save on heating the pool because I can cover it every night. It seems really well made too. We had to call the manufacturer to ask some questions about installing it- but after that it was pretty simple. I highly recommend this product!

Pros: Affordable, Simple to Use, More Pool Use, Too Good to be True
Cons: Could be more to install for the average person without knowledge or tools.
"This is by far an incredible reel system and Affordable compared to any other automatic pool cover system! I waited for over 2 years for a review and finally found one on another site who complained about the short cord - really?? That is not even a hiccup compared to how one person can pull off the cover and cover the pool back up with ease. Now for one we have an oval pool with steps. If you use a solar blanket cover this will work on any pool according to the Mfg. when I called. We kept the cover square where we attached the cover to the reel; we cut the cover on both sides so the seams of the cover are centered also. This is so the tether cord attaches on the seams to the poly rod which is underneath the cover. This would be for strength. We also got the adjustable Pool Boy and set it on the highest setting. Be mindful, the video does leave out the part where you do have to straighten out your cover at the start of reeling up the cover but after that, this is a DREAM come true. Wish I had it from the beginning, it would have save a lot of hassle."

Great Product,

Pros: ease of use, no hassle of putting on and taking off cover
Cons: no wheels with product, taking off cord from reel instead of electrical box
"I looked around the internet looking for reviews because of the cost. I was unable to find anything so I will give you my take on the product. It is absolutely awesome!!! It exceeded my expectations in terms of how well it extracts and retracts the pool cover. Pretty straight forward in terms of assembly. Two downsides- wish it came with caster wheels(went to home depot and put them on product-) and wish i could unplug unit from the electrical box instead of where reel is. If any of you are sick of taking off cover and putting it back on, I highly recommend this product. I was actually looking at buying an automatic pool cover but this does the same job at a fraction of the cost. I will use pool more often this summer because of the ease of use with this product."
