Hey all - Does anyone have any experience with solar cover reels? Do they work, hard/easy to turn, recommended model?

I really want to continue using my solar cover but putting it back on after a swim (and heating) session is just such a PIA. Not looking to try liquid solar covers however.

I considered cutting mine into 4 pizza sections and trim sides with PVC, but not sure. Any solutions for ease of removal/install is greatly appreciated.
