manual below deck reels

Many pool owners know that pool covers are a good idea; they reduce leaves, dirt and debris entering the pool, extend the swimming season, and because they prevent evaporation, they can reduce a pool’s running costs significantly. However, these clever owners don’t want to look at their pool covers, or trip over them, so they install concealed pool covers under their decks: another good idea.
