Was hoping for some suggestions on a higher than average quality poles and brushes I can buy from Amazon. I've purchased the bargain poles from our independent pool supply and big box hardware stores, but the locking holes always seem to get elongated. Plus the twist lock sometimes get pretty hard to unlock. Also, the brushes seem to fall apart pretty fast.

So how should I spend my money? Side note, this isn't an unlimited budget kinda thing, since any money I spend on the pool takes away from the other 100 hobbies I currently have :)

I have a net made by PoolTuff products that I bought from Amazon. It was very highly rated and has a lifetime guarantee. I think when I registered it I am now on their mailing list and they are supposed to launch a kickstarter type thing for a pool pole with a same type of lifetime guarantee. I figure I will get one of those when they come out in about a month or so.

BTW. The pool net is holding up great. The last one I had shredded pretty quickly so I figure the lifetime guarantee should make it worth the price.

The sweepease looks like a winner... any advise on which of the two vesions to buy for a Stonescapes mini pebble finish. One is a 100% nylon, while the other is a SS / Poly blend.

There is also a 3rd smaller one called the algae-zilla. I have all 3 but mainly use the nylon brush on my pebble finish. I would start with Nylon.

Thanks again for the tip on the Sweep Ease brush... that thing really sticks to the walls. I did have issues with my old cheapy pole collapsing in, because the tightening collar wasn't making the pole tight enough. I figure the JED pole I'll be getting the next day or so will alleviate that problem.

I have just added the sweepease nylon to my shopping cart on amazon (supporting TFP of course!). I was debating getting the SS/Nylon one but one of the reviews said that it was shedding steel bristles on it's first use. I look after 3 pools and one of them is frequented with kids so I will stick with the nylon. I hope I never have to use the Algae-zilla!

I will get a Jed pole next. I think there are more expensive ones out there (the young lad from pool swimming tips has some reviews) but the Jed mentioned above seems to be the sweet spot for me. It will leave me more pennies in the jar for my Riptide :D

I need a new pole and brush. How to I purchase on Amazon and support TFP. Is there a shopping link to Amazon that does this?
Look into Amazon Smile. You can set up a charity for Amazon to donate through your account settings. Must make purchase through smile.amazon.com

Received new pole last night. A little heavier to handle, but the level of quality is so far above the one I was using. When extended as long as possible no bending. Looks like I should have bought this years ago.
