The Zodiac Cyclonic Leaf Catcher has an innovative vortex collection method, which is used to trap leaves and debris before it reaches the pool weir basket. The product is made from strong plastic materials and does not add extra strain on your pool pump. The larger leaf canister ensures that you can empty the basket less frequently. The Zodiac Cyclonic Leaf Catcher is compatible with Zodiac Twist and Lock hoses as well as standard pool hoses. The product comes with a 2-year manufacturing defects warranty.
