Pine needles stuck in the screens is quite a bother to me. I was told there is a tool that can be pushed along the screen, inside and out, that will cut the needles and uses the same pole that my pool vacuum and brush uses. Anyone heard of it? Pinch A Penny discontinued them and couldn't tell me the name. A few other pool places never heard of it.

If you mean slash pine needles, I find they are easy to extract, by hand...we have several big slash pines in our backyard between our lanai and the golf fairway, but even when I get back there in November, I don't find it more than 15 mins of breaking off the 'doubles' and sliding them through.

Never heard of a tool, but it may work; so do my fingers. ;>)

Here is some information from a blog I read one time. They advise to cut the branches back away from the screened cage. Use a blower to remove the needles that are on top of the screen and have not yet been lodged in. They make a couple of tools for removing pine needles. One is called Screen Maid, which is similar to a lint roller. And the other one is Pine Comb. It is like a rake and picks up the pine needles. www.pinecomb.com
Another option is when your screen needs to be replaced, get the smaller sized holes in the screen.
