I am using skimmer socks in my basket to catch small needles that come off a cedar tree near my pool. The trouble is that they only last a week and I feel that for the money I am spending, I could find a more permanent solution. I was able to find this http://ep.yimg.com/ay/yhst-914256006...mesh-bag-3.gif for the debris canister coming off my main drain, but haven't found something similar for my skimmer basket. I am half considering buying another of those bags and cutting it down and attaching it to my basket with a zip tie. Has anyone come up with something better?
