Picture of PVC Pool Tool (DIY Shepherd's Hook)
The backyard swimming pool can be a joy for all.  But, after the fun is over, sometimes it's tough to get all those toys out of the pool.  I needed some kind of pole with a hook on the end to speed up the process.  What about those long fiberglass or aluminum poles they sell at the pool store?  Too heavy.  Too long.  Too expensive.

This instructable will show you how to make your own PVC pool tool for minimal cost.
