I think this idea can help everyone who has a pool. It keeps all kinds of debris from ever reaching your filter, especially all those particles and debris that can pass through the fairly large openings in a standard skimmer basket.
You can find these in the kitchen gadget section of most stores. Measure the top of your skimmer basket and find a screen type strainer the same size, I then ground the handle off.
it is amazing all the "stuff" this catches, you can even see in this pic, some fine material on the screen.
keep it from ever reaching your filter.
what do you think?
