    Skimmer Baskets

      Agree with "great pre-filter" description
      I was so happy in the different this lightweight mesh bag with a sturdy rim and handle. I bought a second one so I will have a backup in case I even need it. Catches everything (bugs and pine needles mostly) yet it is so easy to turn over, dump out, put it back in my skimmer basket without even needing to wash it even with perpetual use. The frequency of changing out the cartridges in my filter went way down since using this simply-designed-yet handy tool.

      Easy to use
      Easy to attach & I no longer have to stick my hand into unseen territory that has possible spiders. The handle is a huge asset.

      When I bought my pool in 2003 this was the skimmer basket that was used and over the years it wore out, which was completely acceptable, what was not is that I could not find a local company that had a replacement, greater Phoenix, Arizona area. So search online and found your site, intheswim and you had exactly what I was looking for, this item. So bought 2 so would not have to go through the hassle of finding a replacement again. Of course now I know the name also, Hayward, SP1080 Skimmer. ... read more I book marked this site and will always search here first for any other pool or spa items I need, thanks.

      All inclusive package.
      This unit came complete with seal, trap, vacuum attachment and backwash preventer. The only down side is that the basket does not snap in but dislodged when the pump is turned off. Engineering over site

      NICE replacement skimmer with auto fill...
      I bought this to replace the A/G Wide Mouth Thru-Wall Skimmer (#Z5980) I previously used due to replacing the liner. This skimmer is a one piece construction, which means less assembly time and effort, and less chance to leak. It feels and looks very sturdy. the lid is about the same diameter, buy slightly thinner, but still feels sturdy though. The new gasket is also a one piece design. It overlaps the pool wall and liner, a nice touch! TIP: One need to cut the liner to exactly the same size ... read more as the hole, no overlap, or the liner will wrinkle. A nice add-on is the automatic fill and overflow system. If one connects a standard garden hose (or the screwed-on(!) quick disconnect, which requires an additional part), the adjustment under the lid makes sure the water level will stay the same. There is a 1" overflow exit port, that needs to be connected to a drain. The skimmer flap, that keeps floating debris in the basket, has sliding pins that will lock it in place, not some plastic tabs that break on first removal. The cons: The adjustment with in the auto fill or auto level feels kind of cheap, since it is all made of plastic. The 90 degree over flow exit port is also made out of plastic. I am certain these will not last long. The skimmer basket is not locking in place, which means it can come (floating) up when the pump is off. Bugs will come out of the basket and keep floating behind the flap. But as soon as the pump comes on, the bugs will get sucked into the pump. This defeats the purpose of the basket IMO. Also the lid to get to the auto fill adjustment might be a little tough to remove, depending on the pool, since a pool rail could potentially interfere with clearance needed to open it. Also, if the auto fill assembly ever needs to be removed, there would the hole in the skimmers wall, and there is no plug included, but should be just in case Overall, I do like the skimmer, the design is solid, minus the somewhat flimsy auto fill adjustment. Nice gasket, all other parts like skimmer block off plate, flap and so on are included and seem to work well. A higher quality adjustment, brass drainage port, a plug for the potential hole, and I would have given this skimmer 5 stars.

      Skimmer Baskey
      These baskets are greatly priced but they will break if they get clogged with to many leaves which is no fault of the basket, I ordered 3 due to having so many trees around.

      Best Ever
      This is the BEST thing to have for your filter basket. With the pollen as high as it is now, it gathers ALL of it. If we didn't use this sock, most of the pollen would be back in our pool. It's amazing what all it collects. Tried using a nylon but it wasn't as fine mesh as this filter sock is. Would highly recommend this product to anyone with a pool. We run our pool year around with a sock on the filter basket. (Can't swim in winter tho.)

      A must during pollen season
      Pollen and dead algae are not effectively collected by a sand filter so most of those billions of particles get recycled back into the pool over and over again. These skimmer socks do the job effectively but must be checked and cleaned daily during pollen season. At the outset of pollen season, they may even need 2 or 3 cleanings daily. Otherwise, the resulting restricted pressure could harm the pump.

      Use with caution
      These work great to keep debris out of hair pot. We have a large fir tree over our pool and get lots of needles in the pool. We also get pitch in the water. The sock can get clogged very easily. If that happens the suction will destroy the skimmer basket. We only use the sock right after we remove the solar blanket to catch the needles and then remove it. Never leave it in place for more than a couple hours. It still is worth the effort.
