    I'm not sure how Intex skimmers look, but I use skimmer socks inside my in ground pool skimmer. Mine stretches over the edge if the skimmer basket and the handle clips back down into the basket which helps to secure it inside the skimmer basket. Then the pull of the water pressure keeps the sock pulled down into the basket. With the socks I just pull it out, replace with another and then shake out/hose out the debris in the first and let it dry until the next time I clean out the basket.

    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.
