Swimming Pool Glossary: Skimmer Basket

The skimmer basket is what traps dirt and debris that has been floating around in your pool. Usually it is about 16 inches long and has a lot of holes in it, so that it doesn't limit the flow of water into your pool. You can easily remove the basket and replace it when you need to at little cost.
