    18" vs 24" brush

    Do you guys always prefer the larger 24-inch brush? I've always had 18" but thought the larger may end up less stokes?
    Having a kiney bean-shaped pool means there are almost no flat areas on the sides, so only the bottom is flat.

    Do brushes go on sale as winter approaches?

    I prefer a smaller brush because the larger one is a pain to manuver into the corners.

    Yes most pool stuff goes on sale toward the end of the season. You have to be on the lookout though, everybody is looking for a deal.
