    Replacement Skimmer Basket Options

    Does anyone have a good replacement skimmer idea for a Waterway plastic strainer basket? The plastic handles in both of mine pop off all the time and it is a royal pain in the rear to get the basket out without the handle. I bought a replacement at Leslies Pool that I thought would fit and it was too big. [attachment=0:25qwf03m]WaterwaySkimmer.jpg[/attachment:25qwf03m]

    How about ScumSocks...does anyone use them? Are they a waste of money and time?

    Thanks

    Is the picture the one that fits?

    Mine is a Waterway but it looks completely different than that.

    Yes, that is the one that fits. I am thinking of trying to rig a shaft that fits flat in between the two holes, but haven't figured out what type of handle I can use.

    I use Skimmer Socks and like them. They do a good job collecting scum, and actually make it easier to spray out the basket. The only thing is - they go inside the basket. I had to remove the handles from the baskets to get the socks to fit.
