Which skimmer basket should I purchase? The skimmer lid says Hayward model# SP1070/SP1010.S/SP1070-2/SP1070-2S.

Hello Jeri - The correct Hayward skimmer basket is part number SPX1070E (4042-15)

Which basket is correct......they all appear to use the same part number, but the 3 pictures appear to be different. The 2 end pictures appear to have a more slanted sidewall and the center picture has a less slanted side wall and looks more like my skimmer basket

Hi, Raymond. They're all the same dimensionally, the angle in which the picture was taken make it look a little different.

Our old skimmer basket would not stand down in it's place in the skimmer so we ordered a new one from INYOpools problem solved.
