    Questions about pool poles

    We moved into a house a couple of years ago with a pool. We had someone maintain the pool and this year I decided to do it myself. Looking through the shed, I found some pool poles and was hoping to use them since they looked like they were in good shape. One of the poles has a metal piece at the end of it with a screw (picture attached). I tried researching on the internet how I can get attachments to it but could not find anything. I was wondering if someone can explain how this pool expands.

    Another pole's had a plastic cam lock that cracked. I saw on the internet replacements for the cam lock but was wondering from other peoples experience if it made sense to replace or just buy another pole?

    Thanks

    I have no idea about the first one but the second cam lock is a ten dollar part on amazon. Probably worth repair over replace

    It looks like there is a brand name on the end of the pole. Try researching that. The pole looks pretty good, but I find that sometimes I spend too much time researching things to save a couple dollars, and that time could have been better spent. Good luck!

    Might be best to just get a new $20 pole over at your local pool supply place. Plus you might need a brush and a few other things.

    First pole is half of an internal cam lock pole. They are very durable, put pricey. This is what you see most pool guys running around with.
