In other words, are the holes in the net small enough to capture fine particles and debris on the pool surface?

Answer: 
The net on this skimmer consists of a mesh with gaps of approximately 1.5 mm. It is best suited for leaves and debris, rather than fine particles.

Answer: 
You will need a 1 1/4" diameter pole to effectively use this item. We recommend our 16 ft. Standard Telescopic Pole, Model # 61301/SKU # 568587 (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Unbranded-16-ft-Standard-Telescopic-Pole-61301/203796253);
or our 8 ft. Standard Telescopic Pole, Model # 61309/SKU # 569049 (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Unbranded-8-ft-Telescopic-Pole-61309/203796264).

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done I have been using this skimmer at my gunfire pool with good results.It is of aluminum construction with a heavy plastic outer rim to prevent scratching etc on the pool surface (if you have a liner I am guessing). It has held up well. When I installed it on the handle however, the black plastic plug dislodged and is somewhere in my pole handle, never to be seen again. This is not critical, but it did keep the rough edge protected. My only other concern is the screws which keep the rim and handle in place as I cannot comment on their durability. I wish the net was cut neatly rather than sticking out where the rim meets the handle. Sloppy finishing. I do recommend this skimmer, however, as it gets the job done and the few things mentioned should not bother most people at all. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pool Leaf Skimmer Nice wide collection net. Fits standard Pole. Easy to installl and remove for storage. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD DESIGN AND DURABLE THESE SKIMMERS ARE TOTALLY NECESSARY FOR GOOD POOL MAINTENANCE. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worth the extra money I've gone through 2 of the light weight skimmers in the last two years and this one is much more solid and durable. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Works great. Some skimmers have larger mesh but this one works great. July 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Adequate for Light Duty Use I have just used this net for the first time, so my observations are a first impression. The first thing I noticed is that the neck of the frame is fabricated from metal, which suggests greater durability than one made of plastic. However, the skimmer pin connector would not catch on the second hole of my skimmer pole, so it stood proud of the pole by about 3”, leaving only about another 3” of the metal neck sitting inside the pole to provide support (see picture). When sweeping the net through the water to gather debris, I noticed the net bend backwards slightly against the water pressure. This causes me some concern that over a period of extended used, it will break, particularly if it is prone to abuse (for example, using it to retrieve or push something heavy, which speaking for myself I will admit I have been guilty of doing on rare occasion). Otherwise, the net seems to be reasonably well made, with a fine mesh that will capture most debris, and it is easily inserted into a standard pool pole (see pictures). I think it is a reasonable value for the price paid, and would recommend it to pool users for light duty cleaning. November 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Leaf Skimmer Real sturdy skimmer. You can tell it is made from quality materials and is heavy duty for long use. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light Weight and Strong enough to lift out heavy leaves This Leaf skimmer works great and has the strength to lift out heavy wet leaves from your pool. I have used to it to help with saving lizards that have fell into the pool as well. It is nice to have so you don't have to touch those little creatures. May 10, 2016
