    Recommendations for pool brush and rake/net

    Hello,
    I am looking for recommendations for a pool brush and pool rake/net. I've been told it is worthwhile to buy "nicer" ones than the ones given to us by the pool company. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've done some searching on the forum but haven't found what I'm looking for yet.
    Thank you

    Hello and welcome to TFP! I've purchased a couple after-market brushes. One made by "Gorilla" and the other is the "Whale Brush". Both are quite sturdy and seem to be well-built. I suspect others may have other recommendations, but that's a start. Nice to have you with us.

    It works great and they really do give you a free replacement if it fails. Check out the reviews.

    any wale tale style brush. I almost think it should be required to start with a brush with out a tale so you can fully apricate what the tail does for brushing.

    I got this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and it appears to work well and looks sturdy but I haven't had it a week. It came with a certificate for lifetime warranty replacement.
