    Filter Debris

    My pool is located around a bunch of trees. I am constantly getting debris in my skimmer
    which is small enough to get to my pump basket. My concern is this tiny stuff is eventually
    making its way into my filter and will eventually contaminate/clog it. Is there any kind of
    finer screen or mesh I can put in my skimmer or pump basket to further filter out the tiny
    debris that may be going into my filter. Thanks

    Check out "skimmer socks" or rig knee-high hose to cover your basket.

    Be careful not to go too long without checking it, as you could starve the pump of water if it accumulates too much debris.
