Product Description

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.

Where in the hose line should the leaf canister be attached?

A  Answered on 4/9/2009 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

According to Hayward, you would have one hose coming out of the skimmer and the W560 would connect to the end of this.

Can I use this w560 leaf cannister to keep leaves from getting into my lines or pump basket?

A  Answered on 9/16/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

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.

Hi Jerry, The Skimmer Socks can be used with this Leaf Canister, either option will work just as good.

Cleaned large filter. Opened and closed different valves to clean them out. Added leaf canister to keep pool sweep from bringing new debris to large filter.
