A swimming pool inline leaf canister is designed to trap leaves and other large debris before they enter your pool's filter system. They are used inline, that is attached in the middle of two lengths of hose in between your automatic pool cleaner and the skimmer box.

If you are constantly emptying your filter box due to trees dropping leaves, the leaf canister will trap a large amount of leaves. You wont have to clean the filter box out as often and as the leaf canister is clear, you can easily see when it needs emptying.
