    Skimmer Basket

    We have the Hayward 1080 vented skimmer baskets (that came with the house and pool) and one has developed a crack where the vented portion attaches to the basket. I need to replace it and having never had a standard basket are these vented baskets worth the extra money?

    If you have a lot of trees nearby, it would be a nice safety feature for your pump. I'd think it would be worth it just for the handle so you don't have to stick your hand down in the bugs or carry a hook to pull the basket.

    I have never seen a vented skimmer basket in person but it appears you can't use a skimmer sock with them. Maybe important to you or maybe not.
