Installation & Maintenance
Oval Shaped In ground Pools
Installing a Rocky’s Reel System is quick and easy. Please see our instructional videos for a step by step installation guide.
Oval Shaped Pool
Place your reel at the widest point of the pool where the corners stop curving. This will allow you to roll up the bulk of the cover without having to run long, varying lengths of strapping from the cover to the tube. Hang your straps straight down from the reel and attach them by folding the cover and putting the grommets through the fold and strap (pictured below). The smaller section of cover will roll up at the same time as the bulk of the cover and float back into place when you put the cover back on your pool.
Over time solar covers develop a memory and the cover will float into place by itself, the first few times you might have to help guide it into place. Depending on how drastic your oval is you might have to place the reel farther over the pool.
We bought a Rocky's 12 years ago and it works perfect. We would highly recommend one of these reels.
