with the pool I received a telescopic pole that is so flimsy that the holes to which the tool attaches are worn out already (twice the size) and I can deform the pole with two fingers. Sometimes the brush falls out when I apply and kind of force because it deforms so easily. BTW the problematic lower tube is a thin blue "corrugated" aluminum tube.
So after googling I orders a "deluxe three piece pole" from Leslie's which is just as bad - I'll return it unused.
Where can I get a decent pole these days ? Mail order or real store ... (I am in NJ)
Thanks a lot !
