Owning a pool can be quite expensive. Your water bill is enormous and don’t even get me started on the maintenance fee of a swimming pool. However, pools are prone to dirt and moss growth. This is why it is vital that you should keep a routine when it comes to cleaning your swimming pool. When you maintain a proper pool cleaning routine, you can save up more money because you can reduce the possibility of having damaged pool parts.
One way to clean your pool is to brush the sides because this is the part that is easily exposed to growth of bacteria. You just scrub your pool to remove any dirt build up that can lead to residue build up. Moreover, when you brush the sides of your pool, the dirt will loosen up. Once you drain your pool, these contaminants will also be drained out or they can get trapped into the filter.
Pool brushes can be made of different materials. Brushes can come in the form of stainless steel, nylon, or wire, while some pool brushes can be made from hybrid materials. You can choose the pool brush that is most effective for your pool. Moreover, you should pick one that would not compromise the quality of your swimming pool. It is best if you choose a pool brush that would not scratch the surface of your pool.
Since there are several options when it comes to pool brushes, you might become confused on which pool brush to choose. Luckily, we used to have the same problem, which is why we have tested five of the most popular pool brush. Find out the results of our review in the article below.

Blue Devil B3518 Wall Brush Deluxe, 18-Inch
The next pool brush that we have reviewed is the Blue Devil B3518 Wall Brush Deluxe that measures 18 inches. It comes with a metal frame and poly bristles that can clean your pool wall and floor.

You can use the Blue Devil Wall Brush to brighten up the steps and corners of your pool with this pool brush as it is able to clean up a large part of your pool surface. Moreover, it can also be ideal for thoroughly cleaning your floors and steps. On the contrary, it may be a bit tricky to get through the corners as it is a larger wall brush.

You just need to be very careful with how you scrub to ensure that the bristles stay in place.

It allows you to have full control over the pool brush to ensure that you can clean the surfaces thoroughly without missing a spot due to the wideness of the attachment. The Wall Whale Classic Swimming Pool Brush weighs a pound a half, which makes it easy to glide through the waters to ensure that you can maneuver the pool brush quickly. The fin attached to this pool brush allows you to operate this easily as it is able to control the force of the water in the pool. The movement of the water on the pool can be tricky to predict so it is harder to clean a swimming pool than a regular surface. This design has been well thought off and it makes this pool brush a must have if you have a pool at home. However, you have to take care of the bristles on the Wall Whale Classic Swimming Pool Brush to ensure that it is stored in a cool, dry place to avoid unwanted oxidation on the bristles.

Another pool brush that we have tested is the Swimline Hydro Tools 8610 Premium Pool Maintenance Kit. It comes with an 8140 triangular weighted vacuum head with a handle and an 8210 18-Inches wall brush. There is also an 8420 dual test kit with case, an 8005B skimmer, and a 9298 scoop thermometer. You just have to buy the telescoping pole separately to begin using the brush and you also have to buy the hose for your vacuum separately. At its price, you are really getting a bargain as you are getting six items for the price of one. You can clean the walls using the wall brush and you can pick up all the loose leaves that are floating in your pool using the skimmer. Moreover, you can easily test the swimming pool for its chlorine or pH level without subjecting yourself to the high price of professional testing. The thermometer was hard to read, but it was working nonetheless. However, the quality is not always consistent. The skimmer ended up with a hole, while the test kit stopped working after a month. The vacuum does not seem to suction well despite the fact that I have tried several methods to get it to work. Moreover, the bristles on the brush started to loosen up immediately and I was left with several bald spots.
