I can't get to my old email right now but I think this is where I ordered a bunch of packages of these. I think the price has come down if so. That's a great price and they are good quality.anonapersona said:
I ordered a bunch of other stuff too. That may have been where I got the tires, bearing kits, scrubbers, etc., right before I sold my 280 to my friend for a steal. I don't remember if I did a google search or found them on eBay. My computer is out of commission right now so I can't double check on that. I think I purchased at least 10 bags of socks. The dogs have eaten some (a fact I always allow for when ordering certain things ) (they don't ingest them; just have a blast playing tug of war and chase) and I gave some to my friend (hey, great gift for pool friends) and I still have bunches left; all have been used but I wait until I have a bunch of dirty ones and then do some bucket dipping and a gentle cold wash with vinegar when I wash a bunch of Aquabot Nasty Bags. I'm not using the socks right now as they and the filter load so fast with the calcium scale that is lifting. I have to change out the socks several times a day and the big filter wants a daily backwash. BTW.... I love the Aqua Pearl filter media. It backwashes almost completely out, very quickly, no silica, and I don't have to take the filter apart to get it all out like I was having to do with the cellulose. The only issue, so far, is that it is hard to find on Internet, and it took forever to get here.anonapersona said:I really like that place for supplies, Polaris parts are reasonable. Last time I ordered from them I got a ton of stuff, something like 10 3 packs of Polaris tail scrubbers and 8 5 packs of skimmer socks, plus a few Polaris parts that I will need eventually.
Thanks - I like the marble idea too.britinusa said:dpool: Im not sure what you are referring to when you say trap? But i put mine over the skimmer basket, in the top, then just drop a small rock in there to keep it from floating when the pump is off.
HA! Is this true???Peter_S said:dpool: the sock has to go in the first skimmer basket...the one inside the pool. The basket with the clear top that is attached to the pump is too inconvenient to change and in most cases has a side entry that isn't suitable to use a sock in.
I assume you also have a basket in the skimmer that is inside the pool??
