Is a roller really required?
Yes – in our experience if you don’t obtain a roller with your solar blanket, you will get one very soon after! While a solar blanket without a roller is theoretically possible, in reality if you don’t have a roller you will leave it folded up in the garage.
Options? – Domestic rollers vary in terms of component materials and whether they are stationary or mobile. In either case they are not normally fixed in place so they can easily be moved out of the way if needed, and come with an overcover to protect the blanket while it is rolled up on the roller.
