Product Details

For removing sunken leaves and debris, this heavy-duty leaf rake is designed with an extra-strength aluminum inner core for maintaining its shape throughout the life of the rake. The close-mesh net measures over 16 in. In length to gather a healthy load of leaves. The close-mesh weave ensures a clean capture so smaller debris doesn't fall back into the water through the net. The perimeter PVC rim protects the pool wall, steps, or any surface from scratches or scuffs.
  • Measuring almost 19 in. Wide and 16 in. High, this heavy-duty leaf rake is large enough to capture heavy loads of leaves that gathered along the top of pool's surface or have sunk to the bottom
  • A deep pocket features a close-weave net that measures over 16 in. High which allows you to capture large loads of leaves
  • The foundational core of the skimmer is constructed with heavy-duty aluminum to support the capture of large loads of leaves and debris and to ensure the skimmer maintains its shape
  • The entire perimeter of the skimmer is covered in a pvc framing that securely fits over the aluminum frame and ensures that no scratches or scuffs are made on the pool floor, walls, or steps
  • An extruded aluminum handle adds strength to the overall skimmer where it connects with your swimming pool pole - sold separately (store sku #568587 / model #61316 and #569049 / model #61308)
  • The handle sports a REINFORCEMENT CAP that bridges the frame and handle together providing extra support in a slick finished look
  • For use with standard 1 1/4 in. diameter swimming pool poles - sold separately (Store SKU #568587/ Model #61316 and #569049 / Model #61308)

Answer This Question

A:  Either will help the net stay fresh, but the most important way to do it is to keep it covered and out of the sun when not in use. Fortunately, I store mine in the shade of a tree, hung up on a fence, so it gets protection from the east and the west. I have never rinsed my net and it has lasted fine being protected from the sun.

A:  I don't believe either will help. What will help it last longer is prevent it from snagging on any sharp objects, and not allowing the mesh to rub against rough surfaces. I hang mine up horizontally at the side of my pool (in the sun and rain) in a location (off the floor/deck) where it is not abused, and it lasts reasonably long.

A:  I keep my net stored out of direct sunlite in a shaded area

A:  Thanks for asking! Yes to both - rinsing the net with fresh water after use and storing away from direct sunlight are excellent ways to extend the life of your skimmer net.

    A:  Yes, if you clean it with water from the hose, not the pool it will last longer. Sun destroys everything. Keep it stored out of the sun.

      by|Apr 6, 2019

        A:  Hi Robert. Thank you for your question. The pole for this item can be purchased at your local Home Depot in the same ae where the net is located. Check with your Garden Associate for more information. The Sku for this item is: 568-587. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

        by|Jan 29, 2019

        A:  Readily available at Home Depot or any pool supply place.

        by|Mar 7, 2019

        A:  Most any pool store will carry the pole. I haven't seen the poles in Home Depot. The connector ends are all generic sized and will match.

        by|Jun 26, 2019

        A:  The pole is actually available at Home Depot as well but they don’t carry a lot of them. First part of the season is the best time to pick one up

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  If the net tears easily, it could well be an import. Try storing the net from the hot sun ... it may prolong its life.

                  by|Aug 3, 2016

                  A:  This is an add on to my previous answer. I don't see any way to replace the net if it tears or falls apart.

                  by|Jun 11, 2016

                  A:  Don't know. Only had mine 2 months and it's still in good shape. Maybe find out who makes it and go to website ??

                  by|Jun 10, 2016

                  A:  We're sorry, but this item is sold as a whole good only, and the net is not replaceable. However,depending on how you use your leaf rake, you may consider look at Poolmaster's new Swivel Skim Elite, which does have a replaceable net. (Available on Homedepot.com - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Poolmaster-Swivel-Skim-Elite-29012/206346878).

                    A:  Replacement mesh is not available for this rake. If you feel there is a manufacturer's defect please call 800-854-1492 to discuss with the manufacturer.

                      This is a well made standard swimming pool leaf rake. It will get a lot of use in my Phoenix pool with all the trees around the pool. It's a well made product and I know I will get several years of service out of it.

                      A nice Leaf Rake that works very well.
                      I'm replacing a leaf rake that is perfectly fine but the net is so stiff that it is hard to empty and is a pain to use so when I had a chance to replace it, I jumped at it. This new net is much more pliable which make it easier to empty. The size and shape works very well for my inground pool. I use it frequently to remove the frogs that jump in the pool and this net does it without harm to them. Overall I'm very happy with the unit and I would recommend it.

                      Hi,
                      Sorry to hear you have been disappointed!
                      May we suggest you rinse with clear water from your garden hose after use, and store out of the sun (and away from chemicals)? Testing the pool water regularly and keeping the water balanced may also help with product longevity.
                      Sincerely,
                      Customer Service Poolmaster_HDX

                      Good frame, netting could be stronger
                      Well constructed aluminum neck and frame. Fits my pool poles. Netting could be heavier. My rose bushes easily put holes in the netting which is why I replaced the last one.

                      I didn't realize how soft the net was. Makes it hard to get the leaves in the pool. Net folds to easly and gets tangled within itself.
