I need a quality head for manual cleaning the pool. I used to have a good one; it was heavy and maybe made of zinc, but I tossed it out in the Great Mustard Algae Cleansing of 2014 - everything went, hoses, brushes, float, toys, and our vacuum head.
I replaced the vacuum head at Leslie's - at $60 it was their most expensive, at least her, locally. Well, I went out today to vacuum the pool and it was dead. A wheel had strewn its bearings all over, the springs and bolts were so rusted that I wouldn't put them in the pool even if everything else worked, and the part of the head that connects to the pole was deeply corroded - maybe an eighth-inch thick. The head lived where it shouldn't - in close proximity to the tub of trichlor - and I'll store its successor elsewhere, but now I need its successor.
So, where do I get a quality, heavy-duty manual pool cleaner/vacuum head?
