Are there basically two types of nets that you use to scoop things from the pool, or are there other types that I need to know about? So far I just see the big "bag" looking type for scooping leaves from the bottom of the pool, and then the shallow skimmer net for scooping from the surface. I think the shallow ones come in a few shapes and sizes or are they different nets for different things?
I know there are the nettings that you can use to cover the whole pool & the ones you can put in the skimmer to help it not suck in debris. I am wanting a rundown on some other basics about nets I guess.
Also, rather than $20 for a new leaf rake, should I use some needle and thread and sew up the hole in my current leaf rake? Or what is another good way to repair it? I have a heat sealer (the kind you use for shrink wrap -- polypropelene or polyethelene) and thought that might work but I don't want to mess up my heat sealer, so I would only try it if someone here knows it's okay. (Apparently a leaf rake is more like a net/bag?) Or just spend the $15-$35? They tend to break fast unless I get the more expensive good brands :\
Thanks again everyone!
