Does that too white ring come off. The bag with mesh net is hooked in it but can’t pull off or twist off. What is it supposed to do??
Hi, The white ring cannot be removed. That is the lip that helps secure the bag to the Leaf Eater assembly.
How do I use it
Robin, You would attach your garden hose to the leaf eater. The pressure from the garden hose pushes the leaves into the bag.
Can I use while pool is full
Robin, Yes, you can use it while the pool is full.

Pros: Works as it should
Cons: INYO's price, hose connections seems weak
This works well I just wish it came with a finer mesh bag. Lets a LOT of debris through. I worry about the hose connection breaking before long.
(3 out of 5 stars) Works ok. Hoped for better.

Pros: Picks up larger leafs
Cons: Hard to keep flat on pool surface
Bought the to take care of some of the larger leaves we have in our pool. Found it hard to keep flat on the pool surface. The front wants to keep riding up. Am considering adding a weight to address this.
(5 out of 5 stars) Sturdy

Pros: Well made
This is well made in my opinion and works like a charm. We have not been able to cover our pool in the winter ever since we found one of our older 150 lb dogs standing out on the cover one winter when the pool froze. We were afraid she might go out there and fall through the ice and get tangled in the cover. My neighbor has giant maple trees so we get a lot of leaves. This is the best way to get some fresh water in the pool and get the leafs out at the same time.
