boston below deck reels

Many pool owners know that pool covers are a good idea. The right pool covers are easy to use and they come with loads of money and time-saving benefits. Pool covers help reduce leaves, dirt and debris from entering the pool, warm your pool by up to 4 degrees, and thanks to less evaporation, they can halve a pool’s running costs. However, these clever owners don’t want to look at their pool reels or trip over pool covers when they’re not in use. The answer? Concealed pool cover reels under their decks. Brilliant!

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