Part # W560
Dimensions 13" L x 7.5" W x 7.5" D
For pools with heavy debris, Hayward leaf canisters are available. The large capacity canisters trap leaves and other large debris before they reach the pool's pump and filter system. The superior design allows the water to bypass the debris and maintain proper flow to the pump. The lexan see-thru construction allows you to immediately know when emptying is necessary.
This leaf canister plugs directly into the hose system of the Hayward Pool Vac Ultra and Hayward Navigator Pool Cleaners. It is simple to install and will save you time that was once spent cleaning your swimming pool. This is a must have if you own a Hayward Navigator or Hayward Pool Vac Ultra.

my pool has side3 input for the skimmer line. Do I put the canister on the first section of pipe?
Hi. This Leaf Canister has to be installed between the two sections of hoses closest to the skimmer.
If I have 20 foot 1.25” hose connected to my filter what can I use to make the connection? I would buy a second hose to connect to the vac head, then place this between both hoses? Can you recommend any part numbers?
Can the 560 be used with the Lady Bug vacuum hoses and are there any other parts like clamps needed?
Hi Debbie, Yes this Leaf Canister can be used with the Lady Bug pool cleaner and there are no other parts like clamps that are needed.
Do these canister have to attached to a robot vaccum system via the skimmer or side suction? Or can they be attached in line with a manual vaccum head attached to a pole? If yes, then what type if any fittings are needed to complete the conections between the two hose ends and the canister?
That leaf canister fit in between the standard vacuum hoses so you would be able to use it on a manual vac, suction-side, or pressure side cleaner, robotic cleaner use their own filter system.
I cannot separate the canister from the cap to remove the strainer. Does it unscrew or does it pull apart. I was able to remove the clamp that holds the cap in place, but can't budge the clear plastic dome. What is the trick to separating the dome from the cap?
After you unscrew the ring you will be able to pull the cap off. It might be on there tight because of the pressure so you will have to use a little muscle.
Will the Hayward Leaf Catcher Part # @560 work with a Pentair Sand Shark Hoses?
Also, Do you have a leaf catcher that will set inside the skimmer and have connection to
the Pentair Sand Shark Hose?/?
Thnx, Mark O'Dell
Good afternoon Mark, This leaf canister will work with the sand shark hose. You can use a leader hose if you want to use it in the skimmer.
I have a leaf catcher plumbed into my system just ahead of the pump that has a crack in it. Can the w560 be used to replace it?
I bought a Hayward leaf canister w560 .... all my pool hoses are 1 1/2 inch with the standard 1 1/2" hose cuffs. How do I make the connection from the leaf canister to the Hose .... the canisters odd connection with the two protrusions ( 1 5/8 " ? ) I tried several standard 1 1/2 hoses / adaptors nothing works. Can you advise ?
Does this leaf canister work well for long Scotch pine needles?
Hello, This canister is designed for collecting leaves and larger debris before it gets to the pump basket. The holes are open enough to allow the occasional pine needle through. We have no specific information available to determine the effectiveness of this canister in relation to pine needles, but from a personal opinion viewpoint, you are adding another line of defense which is better than nothing.
I intend on purchasing the Pool Cleaner 4 Wheel Cleaner and this leaf catcher.Can pool skimmer socks be used in the leaf catcher to catch small debris? Would it be better to get a skimmer cap with spout for the cleaner hose to attach to and have the skimmer sock in the skimmer basket? Thanks.
Can I use this w560 leaf cannister to keep leaves from getting into my lines or pump basket?
Yes this leaf cannister amongst a few other ones are designed to catch leaves and larger debris. This keeps debris from reaching plumbing lines, pump baskets and it even makes emptying it out easier being that it is right at pool level.

DO NOT! Vacuum your pool without this canister. I was too lazy to hookup this canister one day and a small rock got wedged in the PVC between skimmer and pump while vacuuming. It took me 3 miserable hours to get it cleared. I will not vacuum my pool without this canister.

I am so glad that I chose the Standard Leaf Canister. I have two palm trees in my back yard that drop pesky leaves into the pool. With the leaf canister, my pool vacuum can clear up the debris. That saves me time and trouble I used to spend fishing leaves out of the pool with a net!
(4 out of 5 stars) Great addition to my Swimming Pool Cleaner

Pros: Easy to use and clean out.
Cons: Doesn't come with any instructions.
My pool is surrounded by woods so summer storms often pollute the pool with blown in needles and leaves. The design of my pool makes it inconvenient to stop and clean out the pump trap. With this device the leaves and debris are collected in-line. I can easily disconnect it and dump it.
