    Type of brush?

    What type of brush do you guys recommend? I have an in ground pebble interior. I've been using a plastic bristle brush for a couples years. I do have a slight mustard algae buildup that I'm currently prepping my pool chemistry for shocking.

    Several folks on here have recommended the Wall Whale, which I am interested to try. Unfortunately I just purchased a plain-Jane nylon brush, which is working okay for me in the mean time.

    Nylon is for vinyl, fiberglass, tile, and plaster that is less than one year. (Plaster includes any exposed aggregate and marcite finish, btw!) Combo brushes are for older plaster. All stainless are for algae (very stubborn green algae and also the ONLY brush for black algae.)

    You CAN unscrew the Wall Whale from the nylon brush it comes with and screw it on a combo brush if your plaster is over a year old. Newer plaster is really too soft for anything other than a nylon brush.
