Pool Skimmer Basket

If you have a Hayward Pool Skimmer for an above ground pool. You should know a trick with the skimmer basket.

You can lock the basket in the Pool Skimmer.

If you don't lock the basket the basket will float around and at some point will get stuck in the skimmer basket. Then it becomes very difficult to take the basket out to clean it.

See this photo of how to lock the basket in the skimmer:

This seems like a very basic setup and common knowledge. However, for the entire pool season, it was very painful to get the basket out of the skimmer. We couldn't figure out why it was so difficult. Did we buy the wrong size basket?

Simple Instructions

Insert the basket so that it rests comfortably in the skimmer. Then rotate the basket so that the open slots lock into the skimmer baskets.
