Mediocre reviews, but most of the low ones are due to the limitations on the warranty. Solar covers are never going to last 5 years no matter which one you get. Most will not even make it a full two years. $44.45 is by far the cheapest I’ve ever seen one of these. If you go into this knowing that it’s only going to last one season, but that it will do a good job during that one season, it’s more than worth it. I bought two, but may buy a couple more simply due to the price and will take them to be recycled after closing the pool for the year. While they will deteriorate quickly in the sun, they should last indefinitely in storage.
