I have been ordering solar covers each year because the plastic sheeting supplied had to be tied down. The cover would get damaged at those tie-down spots. This new cover with the velco strip running the length of the reel worked great, easy to put on and take off. When I uncovered my solar cover today, the cover looked brand new, no damage. The cover did fray at the ends but it was easily 2 feet longer than I needed. I only gave it 4 stars because of the fraying otherwise it's a 5.

After finally getting the cover on the rolled up solar pool cover it wouldn't stay put. Also the pool cover cover did little to protect the solar cover. The solar cover still deteriated in the sun. That was the reason I had purchased it to protect solar cover from the sun. Not worth the time and effort to place on reeled up solar cover.

Not exactly what I expected
This is nothing more than a sheet of white tarp material, cut to size, and you attach the peel 'n stick Velcro. The price for the product was reasonable, but after you add the shipping you'd be better off buying a silver colored tarp, cut it in strips, and add your own Velcro; you'll even get several covers from one tarp if you measure it correctly. This is what I'll do the next time around. On the plus side, the material is white and will reflect the sun. Covering your solar cover is a wise thing to do, unless you have the $$ to buy a new one every year.

Have ordered this tarp before which had full length of velco closeures. New one only had two single velco closures. New immediatly that would not work on our 20ft wide pool. Would not recommend the new one. Returned tarp ASAP.
