Their website is horrible. Full of broken links and no one ever answers the chat. Mickey Mouse operation.

What is the skimmer model number?

Are you sure that it's a CMP skimmer?

No clue the model but I am 99% sure it is CMP. The baskets I linked above are 99.9999% perfect and identical to what I have in every way except they have that flat spot that allows debris to pass through.

These are listed as 8-1/4", which should be close.

Hayward SPX1070E.

Sta-Rite SwimQuip 08650-0007 U-3 Replacement Skimmer Basket.

Catalog page 221.

IN GROUND GUNITE SKIMMER

25100-000-900 BASKET, UNIBODY

25140-000-900 BASKET, ABS/PVC

I think that the first one might have the flat sides and the second one does not.

I'm pretty sure that the Hayward SPX1070E or the Sta-Rite SwimQuip 08650-0007 U-3 Replacement Skimmer Basket would work.

What is the exact diameter that the basket needs to fit into?

The catalog shows part number 25140-000-900 for the basket.

The Waterway basket has cut sides because the Waterway skimmer has a locking mechanism where you insert the basket and then rotate to lock.

CMP part number 25100-000-900 is listed as "H" style, which I think means cut sides.

If the CMP skimmer does not use the locking mechanism, then I would think that the 25140-000-900 basket would not have cut sides.

In any case, just measure the diameter of the skimmer basket support lip in the skimmer, which I think is 8-1/4", which means that the Hayward SPX1070E or the Sta-Rite SwimQuip 08650-0007 U-3 Replacement Skimmer Basket should work.

  • Top Width 8-1/4"

These show the cut sides in the skimmer but it does not show a gap.



Based on the top dimensions, the Hayward or U3 basket should work.
