Strainer Basket - 355318
does the handle have to be on the basket in order for the basket not to come to the top
Hi, Peter. The handle does not have to be attached in order to allow it to float to the top. The amount of debris in the basket will determine that. The handle just is there for convenience.
Making sure I am ordering the correct strainer basket for my in ground pool. The number on the top of my basket is 38024. However, the dimensions are just very slightly different? 1/4" , or less? I'm thinking the 355318 is indeed what I need?
Thanks for your time, mike
It's a Pac Fab Nautilus NS 72 filter system on the pool.
If what you have is a PacFab Challenger pump then that strainer basket is the correct replacement.

Pros: Great website, easy ordering.
I ordered this basket to replace a badly cracked and broken original basket. The new basket arrived quickly and was installed in minutes afterward. It works much better than the old broken one!
