Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Swimline 8040 Professional Heavy Duty Deep-Bag Pool Rake. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 4.00 stars, and the price range is $14.99-$23.07.

Swimline 8040 Professional Heavy Duty Deep-Bag Pool Rake is strong, structural molded leaf rake with deep fine mesh bag. The frame is made of superior quality plastic and nylon bag.  It handles both big clean-up and small debris above water or bottom of the pool. The small plastic at the front of the rake helps in scraping the bottom to pool, and the big bag holds the trash easily so that it does not float out while removing the rake from the bottom. It is easy to fix and disconnect. It has lip design and curved edges to scoop up the trash easily, meaning no sharp spots to damage the pool sides. It is light weight and fits in most telescopic vacuum poles.

However, some reviewers think that the rake should be heavier with sharper scoops to handle large amount of debris and leaves. Some also experienced the bags ripping out easily. The bag has a tendency to disconnect from the rod as it is glued to the ring. 

Overall the Swimline 8040 Professional Heavy Duty Deep-Bag Pool Rake is a recommended product which makes life easier and saves a lot of time in cleaning pools. This is a good value for money for the work and quality it provides.
