should leaf trap sink?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The leaf trap should not sink, but they do. I purchased one for my pool and one for my parents' pool. After contacting pentair, I was told to keep the rubber o-ring free of debris. This really didn't help. I ultimately cut one of those floating pool noodles to size and put it around the handle, which did the trick. I also noticed that when I put my pump at a higher speed (2150rpm) instead of only 1250, it seemed not to sink as often. Hope that helps.

Works great
The only drawback is the longevity, I have to replace this every 3 years

Great design
Ive had the Hayward leaf trap for years and it was always a pain to empty it because of the threaded lock ring. This Rainbow flip-top lid is a great feature and allows you to easily open it without having to remove the hose or unscrew a lock ring. Much better than the other models out there.

Makes cleaning the pool easier
Incredible product, the snap close lid is very convenient and easy to use. Love that it is clear so you know when it is getting full. You may need to empty a couple times depending on amount of leaves.<br>

My pool gets lots of leaves. This helps keeps the system going between weekly cleanings. Tough to close the "snap" lid for me is my only con.

Kreepy - I gave up on it because it continually missed certain areas of the pool. Had to watch it and move it manually to those areas. The problem might be the odd shape of the pool. I do like the sectioned hose and use it when I do a regular vac of the pool. So this product I would rate 2 or 3 stars, relative to the pool shape I have.

In-line Leaf Trap - Very pleased with this product, and always use it when doing a manual vac. I give this one 5 stars.

Great product with some help
Works great. Having two makes cleaning easy. Just swap them. Giving time for used one to dry and clean. I also use a "Twister" between it and the pump. Keeps pool perfect with minimal work and no stuck on the steps issues.
