london underground reels

Many pool owners know that pool covers are a good idea. They know a pool cover means a warmer pool, longer swimming season, reduced evaporation and reduced chemical use, thereby reducing a pool’s running costs by around half. However, these clever owners don’t want to look at their pool cover reels or trip over their pool covers when they’re not in use. So, they install concealed pool covers, which is another very good idea.

At BMH spa and pool covers, we sell clever below-deck reels to suit.

want an unobstructed pool deck?

The London Underground pool cover system is ideal for reels set into the ground. Set flush with the deck, only the moulded enclosure lid is visible, giving you an amazing-looking pool surround. We can supply complete pool cover reels for inground pools and the moulded in-ground enclosure.
