Collector net and bracket for a pool filter
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
[001] The present invention relates generally to pool accessories but more
particularly to a collector net for a pool filter.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
[002] A filter intake in a swimming pool typically has a screen incorporated
therein so as to collect debris so that they do not cause damage to the
filter. However, that screen needs to be manually cleaned up from time
to time. Especially when there are a lot of leaves and/or wind.in the
area. When people leave the house for a few days, it is likely that the
screen will fill up and block the filter intake.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
[003] In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known devices
now present in the prior art, the present invention, which will be
described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide objects and
advantages which are:
[004] To provide for a way to eliminate the bulk of debris caught by the
screen by providing a catch net in front of the screen.

CA 02823725 2016-12-07

[005] In order to do so, the invention consists in a collector net apparatus
having a net section adjustably connected to a bracket section, wherein
the bracket section is adapted to adjustably connect to a pool frame.
The net section comprising a net member, a net frame attached to the
net member, and a handle member removably attached to the net frame
and adjustably attached to the bracket section. The bracket section has
a first bracket member telescopically inserted within a second bracket
member, and a threaded nut adapted to hold the first and second
bracket members in a desired position and length, wherein the second
bracket member includes a pair of legs separated along a length thereof
a distance such that the bracket section is adapted to be placed stably
upon the pool frame, and a strap member adapted to wrap around the
second bracket member and the pool frame to thereby secure the
bracket section to the pool frame, and thereby secure and hold the net
section in place with respect to the pool frame and pool filter system.
[006] The collector net apparatus has the bracket section include a threaded
bolt and wing nut placed through a distal end section of the first bracket
member that is distal from the second bracket member, and the handle
member of the net section is formed having an elongated space along a
length thereof, such that the threaded bolt and wing nut can be placed
through the elongated space of the handle member and tightened and
secured to a chosen portion along the elongated length, thereby

CA 02823725 2016-12-07
3
adapted to adjust and secure the height of the net section with respect
to the pool frame.
[007] The collector net apparatus has a first of the pair of legs of the
second
bracket member securely attached thereto, and a second of the pair of
legs connected to a movable leg bracket that is formed to fit around and
slide along a length of the second bracket member; wherein the
movable leg bracket includes a threaded nut that passes therethrough
and contacts the second bracket member, such that the distance
between the first and second legs can be adjusted and secured to
thereby adapt to a variety of pool frame shapes and sizes.
[008] The collector net apparatus has the net frame attached to a substantial
portion of the edges of the net member.
[009] The net member is formed having an internal volume in the shape of a
rectangular volume, and the bracket member has a cross-section
formed in the shape of a rectangle.
[0010] There has thus been outlined, rather broadly, the more important
features of the invention in order that the detailed description thereof
that follows may be better understood, and in order that the present

CA 02823725 2016-12-07
4
contribution to the art may be better appreciated. There are additional
features of the invention that will be described hereinafter and which will
form the subject matter of the claims appended hereto.
[0011] In this respect, before explaining at least one embodiment of the
invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited
in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements
of the components set forth in the following description or illustrated in
the drawings. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of
being practiced and carried out in various ways. Also, it is to be
understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein are
for the purpose of description and should not be regarded as limiting.
[0012] As such, those skilled in the art will appreciate that the conception,
upon
which this disclosure is based, may readily be utilized as a basis for the
designing of other structures, methods and systems for carrying out the
several purposes of the present invention. It is important, therefore, that
the claims be regarded as including such equivalent constructions
insofar as they do not depart from the spirit and scope of the present
invention.
[0013] These together with other objects of the invention, along with the
various
features of novelty which characterize the invention, are pointed out with
particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this

CA 02823725 2016-12-07
disclosure. For a better understanding of the invention, its operating
advantages and the specific objects attained by its uses, reference
should be made to the accompanying drawings and descriptive matter
which contains illustrated preferred embodiments of the invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
15[0019] A collector net and bracket (10) for a pool filter (not shown) has a
telescopic bracket member (12) having a first and a second section (13,
13') attached to a pool frame (14) by way of a strap (16). The bracket

CA 02823725 2016-12-07
6
member (12) connects to a net frame (18) which holds a net section (20),
by way of a handle member (22). The height of the net section (20) can
be adjusted by way of a threaded bolt (23) and wing nut (24) used for
tightening the handle member (22) to the bracket member (12).
5[0020] The telescopic bracket member (12) adjusts the distance of the net
frame
(18) to the pool frame (14). A threaded nut (26) locks the telescoping
sections (28, 28') in a given configuration.
[0021] The bracket section (12) has two pairs of legs (30,30') so as to steady

the bracket section (12) onto the pool frame (14), The strap (16) then
attaches the bracket section (12). Because pool frames (14) have
different width, one of the two pairs of legs (30) is attached to a movable
leg bracket (32) which slides along the telescoping section (28') and is
locked in place by a threaded nut (26).
[0022] In use, the collector net and bracket (10) is simply installed as
described
hereinabove and placed proximal the pool filter so that the water
movement inside the pool naturally draws floating debris towards the
filter and thus into the net section (20). Because the process is
automatic, there is no need for anyone to operate the device, except for
removing the debris from time to time.

CA 02823725 2016-12-07

[0023] As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the
present invention, the same should be apparent from the above
description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of
usage and operation will be provided.
5[0024] With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that
the
optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to
include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of
operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious
to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those
illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are
intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
[0025] Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the
principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and
changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to
limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and
described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents
may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
