This backyard customer video show Debra easily rolling the cover directly on the water into a nice tidy roll. As she rolls the water the otherwise trapped water sheets off while at the same time water drains out the end of the tilted roll. The resulting bubble cover is lightweight and easy to remove typically weighing under 25 lbs.
Once the cover is rolled you can either pull out to a shady part of your yard to keep the roll from cooking in the sun, or float off to the edge of the pool to remain cool eliminating the need to lift the cover at all.
To put the cover back on, just pull open along the deck and raft into place. Notice how Debra is shifting the cover to maneuver it into position. Then remove the handle and the roller system is completely hidden. This means there’s nothing on your deck.
