After reading several reviews on different canisters and inline catching devices, this one, the Hayward Large Capacity Leaf Canister, has a few pros and cons. Overall it seems to be worth it’s money. The pros and cons are listed below:
Hayward Large Capacity Leaf Canister review summary:
Hayward Large Capacity Leaf Canister is an in-line canister. Whenever you encounter a bit more debris in your pool then expected it will not split open. It has a bag net. And it is easily cleanable and store-able so it won’t cost you more time using this then cleaning your pool without this canister.
The rubber o-ring of the Hayward large capacity leaf canister can start to leak after a while. To prevent this you need to put a bit of seal grease on the rubber when storing the canister long term for example between seasons.
When using on a full time base to keep debris out of your pool you will notice small particulates sitting outside the net but thankfully still in the canister. Take care and not pour those back into the pool when emptying the water back.
Hayward Large Capacity Leaf Canister for Pool Cleaners Rating:
The capacity leaf canister gets all in all a very good score and is recommended to use.
