    Question Leaf Vac

    My pool has a built-in debris collection system that sucks debris from the deep end and collects it in a mesh bag. The bag is in a unit that looks similar to a skimmer - I.E it has plastic round cover that is built into the pool deck. Under that is a round glass cover (about 8.5 inches in diameter)that seals the system.

    That cover is cracked. The problem is, I don't know the industry name for the system to find a replacement part. I am hoping someone here might have an idea.

    Thanks!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Does your pool have an in floor cleaning system (pop ups)? If so, look for a manufacturer for it. Your in deck leaf catcher is probably from the same maufacturer.
