    Pool Boy Powered Solar Blanket Reel Covers, Uncovers Pool with Touch of Button

    The Pool Boy solar cover reel is the fastest, easiest way to remove your pool’s solar blanket and put it back on when you’re done swimming. With the touch of a button, your solar cover will roll up into the Pool Boy powered solar blanket reel installed at the end of your pool, and it will unroll back onto your pool with another touch of the button. Hand cranking and tugging on the cover is a thing of the past.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Complicated assembly/ electrical I purchased the pool boy 1 so I would not have to worry about batteries dying and also because of the adjustable height. I definitely needed the highest setting. My pool is a lazy L shape and the cover has to be folded to fit the wheel. However I thought the pool boy would just plug into an outlet. That is not the case. There is a power supply box that has to be mounted on the side of the house and then that gets plugged into an outlet. The assembly of the unit itself requires drilling through the metal reel in addition to the grounding and running the power supply. It is definitely not for the average homeowner to assemble themselves unless you are an electrician and are more than mechanically inclined.... once it is assembled, it works fine. It does not come with the reel attachment kit as advertised. I purchased the universal attachment kit from in the swim and it literally just had adhesive strips to "glue" the straps on the wheel. Didnt even stay on for one reeling (cover is heavy and wet...terrible design). I went to the hardware store and purchased washers and screws and drilled the straps on with those. Has not come off since

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor assembling instructions We bought the reel couple weeks ago...we have not run it yet but I can tell you that instructions to put it together could be better. Would I recommend to a friend...don't know yet.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Awesome!!! Now that I have gotten everything set up and used this puppy for awhile, I highly recommend this product. It has made pool life sooo much easier. Yes, it is high on the price but well worth it in the long run.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I was very hesitant to buy this product because it's so expensive (still think it shouldn't cost so much) but I am really happy that I did. It works perfectly and makes covering and uncovering my pool a breeze. Fast, easy, and simple.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great product 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!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever! 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.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product 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.
