    Gloves to wear whilst pool cleaning??

    Hi,

    Just joined this site. Im currently living in Spain and working as a pool cleaner. Anyhow the days are getting colder and the pool water as well. Just wondering if people use gloves at all and if so what type?
    My hands were freezing this morning!

    Yeah they look good. Was thinking neoprene myself as someone posted above, not sure how they work though cos they aint waterproof are they but actually traps a layer of water next to the skin to keep them warmer.

    thanks.

    those look pretty good as long as you don't have to go elbow deep. Years ago, I wore a pair of brown jersey gloves under kitchen rubber gloves. Lots better stuff available now.
