Pool Brushes

Pool brushes are invaluable for pool owners. Brushing your pool regularly can help keep your pool open. Sounds crazy? If your pool gets too dirty, you have to close it until it’s suitable for swimmers.

Plaster pools especially need to be brushed regularly to prevent dirt from occupying the pores in the walls.

Steel bristled pool brushes are especially effective for scrubbing algae off the pool walls. However, a steel bristled brush should NOT be used on a vinyl lined pool.

If you brush your pool regularly and properly, it can reduce the amount of time you spend vacuuming your pool.

To brush your pool properly:

  • Brush from the shallow end of the pool towards the deep end in overlapping strokes
  • Circle the pool towards the main drain

This will cause most of the dirt to be swept into the filter. Head over to to check out our collection of pool brushes.
