Customer Reviews for Replacement Skimmer Basket
Review 1 for Replacement Skimmer Basket
Exact part needed,
Date:May 6, 2011
from Roanoke, Va
from Roanoke, Va
Pros: Exactly what was needed, fit my Hydrotool wide mouth skimmer perfectly.
Cons: Nothing to say bad, exact fit for my skimmer and was made by Hydrotool.
"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."
"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"."
Review 3 for Replacement Skimmer Basket
Date:July 12, 2009
Pros: Fits my skimmer perfectly
"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."
"This replaced another skimmer basket that I bought from another company. It fits perfect and seems strong as any other I have had. The only con is that it doesn't have a handle. I've only had one basket that had a handle on the top and while it was nice, it isn't essential."
"Our skimmer basket broke so I ordered a new one. I called and simply asked for a new one to be included with chemicals I had also orderd. It arrived. We stuck it in the skimmer and it works - plain and simple."
