    Re: Pole holes

    I'd take a hose clamp, screw it on and drill through that. A hose clamp as in a metal strip used to join water hose or secure flexible tubing to a rigid tube/pipe. It has a screw that engages slots in the metal strip around the pipe. For more security of the holes use some extra liner between the clamp and pole.

    The more I think about my redneck roots if you have a bicycle innertube slap that around the pole, hose clamp around that, drill, done and secure.

    I'm very happy my pool that came with the house I bought had an old school aluminum pole. No problem putting some force on that thing.

    A few ideas.

    1) Cut off the end and drill new holes.
    2) Drill new holes at 90 degrees to the existing holes.
    3) Use a stainless bolt and nut to hold the brush, or net, on.

    Note: The clips might also be worn and might need to be replaced.
