    The conversion kit is available direct from the company. You can also take the tail off of the brush that it came with and put it on your oversized brush as long as the holes line up.

    Was that comment really necessary??? For anyone brushing new plaster 2-3 times a day, this brush head can really save them some trouble . . .

    S, you seem to care about not only your pool, but other's. Therefore I am willing to discuss this. You are looking at the 'small picture' (the few weeks that a newly plastered pool NEEDS daily, repeated brushing), my commnts were about 'maintenance' brushing - the once a week variety that every pool owner should do. I don't doubt that this product will make brushing easier, and I said that if mwsmith thinks it's good, it must be. However, a lot of people come here to reduce the amount of money they have to spend on their pool, and, cool as it is, it's an expense that many folks can't fit into their budget.
    I try to post only when I can add something to the discussion, I don't really care about my 'post count', you may not realize this, as the 'old' material is gone. However, anyone who 'calls me out' is going to get a reply, and I was gentle with you.

    I just wanted to follow up after having used this brush . . . It does work and remarkably well, I must say. My pool startup guy used it and was sold from the first brush stroke. I haven't used a brush in years and he made me try the regular brush so I could appreciate the difference. It really helps the brush hold against the wall, with no jittering or skipping across the surface. Everything they say in the marketing of this product has held up to trial . . . Not sure about brushing the pool in record time, but it certainly helps, as one stroke pretty much does it . . . Hope this thread helps and Waste, sorry for getting off the subject, hope there are no hard feelings . . .

    Thanks everyone!!

    Thanks. I think I'll give it a shot.

    I was thinking before that it might be easier to push but that there might be more resistance when pulling it back, but it sounds like that's not a problem.

    Default Do I need one of these?

    Hi all....
    I'm an above ground pool owner. Is it necessary to brush the walls of a vinyl lined above ground pool?
    thanks,
    Dave

    When pulling the brush back the tail flops over allowing the brush to be pulled back with ease.

    I believe that Pooldoc has a riff on this at POOLSOLUTIONS - the sister site to this forum. Every pool needs maint. brushing, usually weekly is enough. The reason for it is that there are many areas in a pool where the flow and exchange of filtered vs. unfiltered ( treated vs. untreated) water is low and brushing 'activates' the water arround the brush and removes particles stuck to the surface.

    SJohnson; yes, no hard feelings! (Both ways ?)
    In the past I was prone to lengthy posts (waaay too much detail and rambling) and am currently trying to shorten my replies,to save myself, and anyone who chooses to read them, some time. I feel that keeping my posts to the 'nuts and bolts' of an answer may be better - if someone needs clarification for something I've typed, I'll gladly give it - if not, I'll have more time to check out other posts( given the limited time I have to 'play' on the site daily.)

    Default thanks

    Thanks for the reply Waste. I don't think I've ever once used a brush in the three years we've had our pool. I guess maybe it's time to buy one of these things and start using it.
    Thanks again.
