Anyone make a squeegee that attaches to a pool pole?

Now that we're well into the rainy season I've got a couple pool cover pumps set up. Water will collect in certain spots of the cover though without reaching the pumps so I've been pushing it around with a pool brush towards the pumps once every other day or so but this is annoying since I have some pine needles that fall on my cover and then they get all stuck in the brush.

Just wondering if anyone makes a squeegee head that uses the standard pool pole attachment. Id like to use my adjustable pole that I already own instead of having to buy a squeegee attached to a 6 or 8' wooden pole.

Maybe an adapter will work. OP on this thread didn't come back and report either success or failure.

I looked into that one but it seemed a little spendy...$25 minimum order from that company and then $10 shipping. I found a similar one that was $15 but the reviews weren't great as someone people said it broke (would snap in half) if they applied too much force. I ended up ordering it and seeing if I it'd be ok for my uses. I'm just wanting to push and inch or two of water so the force would be in line with the pole/adapter and not perpendicular to it like if you were using it with a paint roller.

Much to my surprise instead one one adapter, the company sent 10 of them...so if one breaks I have plenty of backups.

My squeegee head should show up today so I'll have a chance to see how fragile the plastic is later this week. One dude on the Amazon reviews said he filled a couple inches of epoxy and metal shavings inside the adapter to strengthen it. It's a bummer that no company offers a metal version of this adapter but hopefully this will work for me.
