    Looking for skimmer sock, good deal on Amazon?

    Hey all, I'm looking for a good deal on a skimmer sock. I have a hayward skimmer like shown in the picture:

    Seems kind of pricey. I get 2 pr of queen-sized knee-highs at Walgreens for $1.09. Others have reported bigger quantities at lower prices at Walmart. They do get brittle and start to run after a couple weeks, but they do the job and there's no waiting. http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...on-Illustrated

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I bought the same brand last season for $5.95 from Amazon. One sock lasted the whole season so they seem worth the money to me.

    Gary, might be worth it at that price, but $7 in shipping kind of torpedoes the deal for me. Unless of course I sign up for prime, which is $99/yr... not ready to take that leap, but if/when I do, I'll definitely look at this again.
