I have one of those standard pool poles that the builder supplied when my pool was installed about 3 years ago. Its failing. The plastic screw collet that holds the pole extended has cracked and is fast approaching the point where the pole will no longer lock in the extended position. I am going to have to buy a new pole to replace it. My question is: Is there a pole with a decent locking mechanism that might last. I could see one made of aluminum instead of plastic lasting much longer.
Any suggestions as to brand or source?
