The base and dual handles are great, unfortunately the most important part is the tube. The instructions are poor. The tube comes in five parts and requires you to drill the holes and assemble. The end product is a tube which is wobbly and difficult to use. This is most expensive reel I have ever purchased and the most disappointing. You are better off purchasing a less expensive reel which usually comes in fewer pieces and assembles easier and end product is better. Save your money and don't purchase this unless the change the tube design.

4th of July Reel
Bought the reel for the 4th of July party & it came on time. But, all the hardware was missing. Used the old for the 4th. Contacted In the Swim & they had the hardware to me the following week. Assembly was fairly easy, but difficult to keep the tube straight. Ended up with a slight permanent bend in the tube. Once assemblied the reel works well. The unit as a whole is well made.

Worst reel purchase ever
This product is too difficult to assemble. Instructions are poor. It does not come pre-drilled. Tube ends up warped and difficult to use. I have purchased less expensive reels and they were much easier to use. I would not recommend this product until they change the tube design. Save your money and purchase a less expensive model.

Works great. So much easier
I bought this for our 20x40' in ground pool. It's our first solar cover reel and I must say it was worth the price. What used to take two people about 10 minutes to do with a lot of hassle, now takes only one person less than five minutes. I chose this reel because I wanted something that would last and was tall enough to roll over the diving board with the cover reeled up. I also like that it has a 5yr warranty when many of the others only had a 1 yr or 3yr at the most. I am a little leery of the pole as it sags in the middle with or without the cover reeled up, but 20 ft is quite a distance for poke to remain perfectly straight and rigid without being made of solid steel. The straps for hooking up the cover to reel worked great and look like they will hold on well. It took a little bit to setup the main polevel as it required some drilling to customize the length to fit yur pool. It was well worth the effort however and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to a friend.
