    New leaf rake

    Hey, I am a newbie here and with my pool that was completed in February.

    I need a really good and fine Leaf Rake. The one form Hoe depot of bought is fine, except I would like a finer net. Its does not get debris from the palm trees very good. That husk like material that blows off the trees.

    it just seems to go right through the net.

    Is the Red Barron leaf rake what I want?

    thank for any help and I will be here often with a TON of questions I have.

    You can buy a replacement net separately from the leaf rake, which will be less expensive.

    Hi H G and welcome to the forum

    Is the net you bought from HD blue or white?

    The blue net let lots of stuff fall through.

    The white net, I find, will let me scoop almost 'dust' from the bottom of the pool.

    In fact, there is almost no reason to vac the pool when I am done.

    The white one. Its a Pro Series. The holes in mine seem big compared to a Porpoise Brand I saw at Pinch-A-Penny stores here is FL.

    Oh, thanks!
