Over the years, I've bought & broken and finally given up on aluminum pool poles from the box & pool stores:
My wife angrily threw away my prized yellow fiberglass pole after getting splinters, so I am trying to build a sliding steel pole out of fittings at home depot.
But I can't seem to get the fittings right.
Have you ever created a sliding pole out of cheap but strong (strong than aluminum anyway) 10' EMT tubing?
What fittings did you use so that you could slide & clamp the two ten-foot steel (EMT conduit) poles together?
