Our Made In The USA Pool Leaf Rake Will Last Many Seasons

Are you getting tired of having to run out each year (sometimes twice!) to buy that pool leaf rake at the big box stores over and over again? You know you need a heavy duty pool leaf rake, but they always break on you. Maybe not right away - sometimes they do linger on, with tears in the nets, or with broken frames.

We can help with your frustration! Our pool rake and pool skimmer frames are made from "no-break" plastic resin, and our nets are made of stainless-steel. Our pool leaf rake's have replaceable nets, so when it's time to get your next pool skimmer replacement net, you'll only need to change out the net, and not throw away the whole kit-n-caboodle! If you want the best pool leaf rake - one that is made in the USA, and made to last, look no further than Pool Netr!

* While we're sure these will last many seasons, they currently have a 3-yr Limited Manufacturer's Warranty.

After using Our Nets, Your Pool Should Look Like This

There's nothing better than a pristine, clean pool or spa. To help you get there, we now have three distinct lines: the pool netr is a surface skimmer, that will help remove larger debris like twigs and leaves, the leaf netr will help you with all of the debris and build-up on the bottom of your pool (it comes in two versions, our standard version, and a version for silt and sand), and for your hot tub or spa, we have the spa netr. It's a handheld net that you can use without ever having to leave the warmth of your tub or spa. Whichever products you use, you'll have peace of mind knowing that our nets are made with "no break" plastic resin, and feature a three-year limited warranty.

A sneak peek at our new hanging tags...

We've had square tags for some time, and we started thinking -- why not have circle tags that match the shape of our pool & spa nets? Well, we designed them, and they're going to look like these! We'll be able to use them for all three of our product lines, and they will really simplify things! We'll roll them out after we exhaust our other supply of the original tags. Look for them soon! (the purple color is on the digital proof only - they'll be white on both sides, with room for barcodes on the back!

How Strong Are Our Leaf Netr Nets?

We did a little experiment. We brought out the forklift, balanced a leaf netr between the forks, and Kim stepped in one net. She's about 100 lbs, and it held her just fine. Nothing tore, nothing pulled out of the frame. Then Steve, who's about 200 lbs. did the same thing. We got the same result: no rips or tears, nothing pulling out of the frame.

Try doing this test with nets you see at Wal-Mart or your local pool supply store. Try this with all of the usual nylon nets and we're betting if you do, you'll soon find yourself wanting a leaf netr!

This is a special version of our spa netr in Empowering Pink!

This is a special version of our spa netr in Empowering Pink!

This pink net is all ready for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October - but also for special summer and fall events. If your local pool supply store isn't carrying this, ask them to contact us, and we'll make sure they stock these very cool skimmers!

Colors may be a bit bright in a few spots, but that's the camera's fault. Cough.

Working on a new hanging tag design

So  we've wanted a smaller hang tag for some time, and I just created this new design. It measures about 2" x 3.5" and it will be on string around the neck of each pool netr and spa netr. It has a simple elegance, and will give our stores and dealers an extra branding opportunity. I also have a prototype of a counter top POP Display being worked on by our local box company. This box will hold 10 skimmers and will leave a compact footprint in any store that chooses to display our products using these. 

At first, we'll offer these high-quality cardboard versions as an incentive, giving away one with each ten purchased. Later, we'll be working on a metal version (our top incentive, for larger orders places) that will look a bit like a guitar stand (but cooler). As always, lots going on in the Marketing Dept. at Pool Netr!

We're Days Away From Showing You Our New Spa Netr™!


Before the week ends, I hope to show everyone our latest product (and our first foray into the spa and hot tub market). It's the SPA NETR™ and while it's a smaller version of the Pool Netr™, it is unique as well. It will have a contoured handle that will allow for a strong grip, and the same durable plastic resin will be used on the frame. As well, it will feature our impressively strong stainless-steel screens.

Look here for an announcement when we start putting these into production, but my guess is we're looking at this in the next few days!

The Spa Netr™ - Coming very soon!
