    Recommend pool brush.

    We are in need of a new pool brush. The one we have is just wore out and the bristles are coming off in the pool. This was the starter brush the came w/ the pool starter kit. We have a plaster pool and have a SS brush but I only want to use it for algae. I looked at the whale tail brushes. They got great reviews but I wanted to check with you all to see what you might recommend. The whale tail brushes are about $30. I am not opposed to spending that much just want to see if there are brushes that are cheaper and just as good.

    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!

    Richard,

    Thanks for the wall whale threads. I just did a search for pool brushes. I think the wall whale might be the one.

    Re: Recommend pool brush.

    When you look around at all of these pool service guys, none of them use brushes like this and they are cleaning hundreds of pools a week. Wouldn't you think if an item was so great, a "professional" would be using it? Wouldn't they want to save time so they can clean more pools and make more money?
