    Replace Skimmer Basket

    I have an 8" Jacuzzi skimmer basket that needs to be replaced. It is over 13 years old so I have no model #….

    Any advice on where to purchase and size/model replacement?

    If you just bring it into a pool store, you'll probably be able to find a good replacement for it.

    Thanks for this.

    However, I went to "a" pool store where as expected they got the glazed look and knew nothing. I bought a sturdy USA made one slightly over sized….well too wide at the rim soo…

    DIY…drilled holes, cut back the top a 1/4", used the old brass handle cutting off the ends. Its fantastic.
