    Skimmer Basket Broke

    Hello, so my skimmer basket basically shattered (it was very old and brittle), I'm not sure how to go about finding out how to replace it? I found one website "aqua-man.com" but it didn't help. The top diameter is 4 1/4 in, and it seems to be either 5in, or 5 1/2 inch in height depending on how you measure it.

    Here is a link to a few picture of it, if it can help.

    Are there any identifiers or numbers on the skimmer, lid, basket, etc. that could be used to identify the brand and model?

    Oh duh, I was on the Doughboy website but didn't realize it was only showing "top products". Thank you so much.

    Shipping is 13 dollars, how lame.

    Now that you know the dimensions (height, width at the top & bottom) & the model #, you can shop around online for a generic that might be a better bargain. Given the cost of gas these days, reasonable shipping charges are worth it.
