    Better Skimmer Basket Replacements?

    Has anyone found a suitable replacement for Hayward SPX1082CA baskets? The originals look like the picture below and they suck. If there is any debris in the basket the handle pops right off and dumps the contents of the basket into the skimmer. This is even more fun when there is a dead animal in there and I have to then scoop it out with a shovel. I see there are dozens of options out there with much better handles that should fit the opening. Has anyone successfully tried this?

    Here is the link to the actual (crappy) product: : Hayward SPX1082CA Basket Assembly Replacement for Select Hayward Automatic Skimmers : Lawn And Garden Tool Replacement Parts : Patio, Lawn Garden

    Have you measured across the top to see if a generic basket will fit?
