    Rake mesh

    Does anyone make a finer mesh leaf rake? I get a lot of floating fine "stuff" (probably pollen), that always ends up near one end (direction of wind, away from skimmer). Just falls through a normal scoop.

    I think I've read that some people have put a leg from pantyhose over their scoop... you might want to give that a try if you cannot find a tighter mesh.

    That's what a vacuum is for.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
