I will likely use the expensive version right now while I am having pollen issues. Then switch to the cheap versions. Thank you for your help!These are the expensive version -
Amazon.com : Jed Industries 80-852 Pool Skimmer Sock : Swimming Pool Skimmers : Patio, Lawn Garden
But now I use these -
Amazon.com: Disposable Hair Net, Spun-Bonded Polypropylene, White, 100 per Bag: Sports Outdoors
Note, the hair nets will likely not help with the pollen.

From my experience, using the fine skimmer sock really cuts down on the fine particulates going into the filter. My filter definitely stays cleaner. The cheaper hair nets are great for the large debris and it allows you to just pull the net out with all the gunk in it and throw it all away. No need to rinse out the strainer basket with a hose or anything.Can I ask why you would want to use the nets? I have a Pentair 520 4 cartridge filter that does just fine. Are you trying to avoid cleaning your cartridge filter after pollen season. Our pollen season is just starting to get real bad and just curious.
The hairnets are $6 per 100. I know the knee highs are reusable, but they don't last very long because the chlorine eats the elastic. You just toss the hair nets and you have to clean the knee highs. That's why I switched.an even cheaper method, knee high pantie hose from Walmart..
