Telescopic Pole

One of the most basic products that you need is a telescopic pole. These poles are made of aluminum or fiberglass and a wide array of accessories such as leaf nets, rakes, brushes or skimmers can be attached to it.

Vacuum Heads and Hoses

If you are not utilizing an automatic cleaner, you should also have vacuum heads and hoses. Pool vacuum heads attach to the telescopic pole and the hose attaches to the vacuum head. Some have wheels for use in concrete pools and others have brushes to be used with vinyl pools.

Brushes

Swimming pools should be brushed at least once a week and this can be done with pool and tile brushes. This process removes algae and other buildup from a pool surface. Stainless steel brushes should be used on concrete pools while plastic bristle brushes should be used on vinyl pools. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
