Skimlite's Maxi Series incorporates many of the great features of our previous models into our newest and patented design. The pocket "stays" are sewn into the pocket to to create a large opening for skimming, yet closes when pulled straight back. Using the Maxi Series like a brush on the bottom of a pool makes cleaning even the dirtiest of pools a snap! By keeping the pocket open, emptying this rake is easier. Whether you use the leafing edge or the rounded edge of the protective tubing, the Maxi Seri es allows debris to float into the pocket with every little effort. All of the components of the Maxi Series are replaceable and can be done while at the pool.
