Replacement Skimmer Basket
Exact part needed
I ordered the basket on Thursday morning and it was delivered on Friday morning, wow what a delivery time !!!. I had searched the internet for this replacement for a Hydrotool skimmer basket and found nobody that came close. With the measurements listed here, I got exactly what I needed and it was in a Hydrotool package. I also ordered the weir and it too was an exact fit. In The Swim has never let me down on chemicals, parts, or delivery. I am a loyal customer for life.

lasted two months
I have to replace one that is about two months old. It cracked around the rim, and the shape has deformed as if it has melted. I am using the filter saver screens, which can increase the pump pressure when they start to get clogged, so that may have been part of the problem.
But, the holes in the mesh are large enough that I wouldn't want to use it without the filter saver screens. We have a mimosa tree hanging over part of the pool, and the tiny leaves and fuzz would slip right through the basket mesh into the pump and filter.
Overall, I give it a "meh".

My pool was purchased about 5 years ago from a Canadian company, so sometimes it's not easy to find replacement parts. Since the measurements were clearly provided on the site, it was easy to see that it would fit perfectly. No other sites that I found provided this kind of detailed information. Shipping was extremely fast and the basket was just what I needed. Same quality as the original.

Very strong and well made. Order it one day used it the next. It was a little too small for my Jacuzzi skimmer and I mean a very little difference, but still works. Great product!
