Just my opinion, a skimmer sock in the skimmer basket just has flow against it so it'll filter as the water casually passes but in the pump basket I would not chance it. That has pressure and wouldn't stand the chance of staying put.

I tried that. My reason was to catch any debris that got into and past the skimmer while I was installing the skimmer cover for the vac. It tore a hole in the skimmer sock.
