The Intex Leaf Rake is used to remove debris from the bottom of your pool. This rake is compatible with an 1-3/16" inner diameter telescoping aluminum pole (not included). Look for the Intex 110" Telescope Aluminum Shaft Pole to match with the Intex Leaf Rake. This same aluminum pole comes in the Intex Deluxe Swimming Pool Maintenance Kit. You can upgrade to this kit if your pool is 15' or larger.
