    New leaf net

    I have this leaf net now and it works well but it needs to be replaced. Should I get the same or do you all suggest something else?

    That's a nice looking leaf catcher! If that one has been working for you I'd stick with it. It has a nice flat surface for the bottom of the pool to catch things, and a big net so you don't have to keep emptying.

    Not a bad price either.

    It says lifetime warranty! Make 'em send you a new one.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Not sure if the warranty covers a puppy, lol.

    I use the same one and like it a lot. It helps that I got two of them for $10 each at a clearance sale.

    This looks the same as the one I got off ebay advertised as a Red Baron knockoff. I'm really happy with it.

    I bought this one. It might be the same frame but with a different bag. In fact, if you look at the second picture, it seems to show the one you referenced (though the brand is listed differently). The difference is the porosity of the bag. The Silt model does "catch" the water making it provide more resistance than the leaf model would. I've used mine for four seasons and it's in good shape.

    He is a lab/pit mix. Definitely has all the traits of the lab though. Can't keep him out of the pool and wants to chew everything!
