    Mine are on hooks on the side of the pool fence.

    I usually lay the skimmer and brush across the the top of the raised spa (that we rarely use) mainly for the sake of convenience. When we have guests, then I put them behind the fence with the pool equipment.

    I'm fortunate enough to have a small shed to store all of my pool tools. Keeps them out of the weather and especially the hot Texas sun. As for chemicals, I learned (the hard way) not to store those in that same shed unless I want to see everything get rusted big-time. (Right on the box - "Corrosion"!; did I pay attention - nope.)

    I built a big wooden "corral" to put inflated floats in and usually just lay my pole across the top of it. I use the brush and skimmer net waaaaaay too much to bother putting them up!
