    Shopping For New Brush

    Unfortunately, Wall Whale co. is trying to relocate to USA - which is a good thing. In the meantime, I can't buy one. So, I need to buy a good combo brush and I will transfer to the Wall Whale fin once they start selling them again. Or does anyone know of a vendor still selling the Whales??

    Sorry, but I'm confused.

    It is available for purchase. The company is located in the USA and is in Keller, Tx about 5 hours or 300 miles from Texas City, Tx.
    Is this not the product you are looking for?

    The company's parts have been made in China, and evidently problematic enough that they're looking to have parts made in USA now. The XLs sold out already - which is the brush I wanted.

    I heard the XL is too hard to push. I have the regular one and love it.

    Thanks for the input. I can get the classic (which is the regular sized).

    Shopping For New Brush

    I have had the classic for over two years now. Works great, no problems except for normal nylon bristle wear & tear. Honestly I don't see the advantage of the XL as it has the reputation of being a lot harder to push. I have a 16k gallon in-ground pebbletek pool and I can brush it with the classic WW in less than 15mins.
