A good piece of advice I learned from here was running a skimmer sock (aka hair net) when i find extra debris or heavy loads of pollen. Found here...
I ordered these last year, worked great from what I remember. Hubby left them outside most of the summer (in shade), but it gets pretty hot here in Southeast Texas. It seems like they are way more fragile, sometimes get a hole in them just pulling one out of the bag, and the "stretchy" elastic part does not spring back, so many times the net is all collapsed in the skimmer basket on the sides. Is that how these normally are, or did the heat degrade them?? Or does anyone use a different type/brand that may be sturdier, but not the actual socks that are not disposable?
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!!
