Improved pool skimming net apparatus
5FIELD OF THE INVENTION
[001] The present invention relates generally to to pool equipment but more
particularly to a pool skimming net apparatus.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
[002] Using a skimming net to pick up debris on the water surface of a
swimming pool is well known. There are two main types of swimming
pools: in-ground and above ground. When skimming an in-ground pool,
the net is placed slightly below ground level to reach the water surface
and as such, the user holds the skimmer's handle downwardly. When
skimming an above ground pool, the user obviously need to hold the
handle differently depending on how high the pool is and how short the
user is. Because of the two different orientations of the handle, the
skimming net may not be adequate or optimized for both situations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
20[003] In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known devices
now present in the prior art, the present invention, which will be
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide objects and
advantages which are:
[004] To provide for an improved swimming pool skimming net which has an
adjustable net that can be oriented into a variety of different angles in
relation to the handle.
[005] In order to do so, the invention has a handle member connected to a
skimming net member by way of an articulated joint member.
[006] The articulated joint member is connected to a primary frame member
interface. The primary frame member interface extends perpendicularly
from a circumferential frame member portion. The skimming net member
consists in a frame member formed by the circumferential frame member
portion, and at least one cross support member connected between a top
portion and a bottom portion of the circumferential frame member
portion. A net member is attached to and located within the frame
member's periphery. The handle member pivots from a substantially
parallel configuration in relation to the frame member, to a substantially
acute angle thereof. A retainer member setts any angle in between the
parallel and set acute angle configurations, also providing a secondary
attachment point between the frame member, and the handle member by
way of a retainer pivot point member extending integrally from the
circumferential frame member portion. The primary frame member
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

3
interface is located approximately a third of the way onto the top portion
of the circumferential frame member portion, and the retainer pivot point
member is located approximately two thirds of the way onto the top
portion of the circumferential frame member portion so as to provide a
separating space between the primary frame member interface and the
retainer pivot point member both located on the circumferential frame
member portion as well as a separating space on the handle member
between the articulated joint member and a resiliently deformable friction
clamp member, located at a distal end of the retainer member and
releasably connected onto the handle member by way of the resiliently
deformable friction clamp member.
[007] The pool skimming net has the handle member is attached onto a handle
clamp member which is fixedly connected to the circumferential frame
member portion.
15[008] The retainer member is clipped onto the frame member by way of a
retainer clip member.
[009] The handle member is preferably telescopic in configuration.
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

4
[0010] The handle member is disconnected from the retainer member and
reconnected to the handle clamp member and change in configuration
has the pool skimming net change from an in ground pool optimized
configuration into an above ground pool optimized configuration.
5[0011] The cross support member being used for strengthening the frame
member so as to reduce undue warping of a net member.
[0012] The separating space between the primary frame member interface and
the retainer pivot point member providing leverage so as to reduce
torsion stress onto the articulated joint member, as well as spreading
load caused by water friction onto two points on the handle member.
[0013] 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
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.
[0014] 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
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

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.
5[0015] 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.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
[0021] An improved pool skimming net (10) has a handle member (12)
connected to a skimming net member (14) by way of an articulated joint
member (16).
[0022] The handle member (12) pivots from a substantially parallel
configuration
in relation to the skimming net member (14) to an substantially acute
angle thereof. In order to secure any given angle, a retainer member (18)
provides a secondary attachment point between the skimming net
member (14) and the handle member (12).
[0023] A secondary handle clamp member (20) located at the distal end of the
retainer member (18) secures it to the handle member (12).
[0024] The skimming net member (14) consists in a frame member (22) and a
net (24) as is known in the art of skimmers. The handle member (12) is
preferably of a telescoping configuration as is known in the art. The
articulated joint member (16) is also a configuration well known in the art
and need not be further discussed. Optionally, the handle member (12)
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

can be attached onto a handle clamp member (26) fixedly attached to the
frame (22). Also optionally, the retainer member (18) can be clipped onto
the frame (22) by way of a retainer clip member (28).
[0025] The frame member (22) further includes at least one cross support
member (23) connected between the top and bottom frame member (22)
in order to strengthen it.
[0026] In use, the skimming net (10) can switch from one configuration for an
above ground pool (30), as shown in fig. 4, to another configuration for
an in ground pool (32), as shown in fig. 5, simply by disconnecting the
handle member (12) from the retainer member (18) and connecting it to
the handle clamp member (26).
[0027] 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.
[0028] 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
CA 2805649 2019-01-23

8
illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are
intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
[0029] 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.
