"I use these gloves 99% of the time [Uline Industrial Nitrile Gloves]. They are great for handling chems, lubing o-rings, fixing filters/pumps, etc. Very durable, but not so thick that you can't feel the texture or details of what you're grabbing. A longer extension is also available."

"I use the Cold Resistant PVC Gloves in orange. They are a little bulky, but keep your hands warm and dry. For deep skimmers, I use the PVC Long Cuff Oil Resistant Gloves, which go up to your elbows."

"We service swimming pools year round and use Kenai Waterproof Gloves from Glacier Glove. They work great. Water doesn't penetrate the glove."
