It's a bit heavy, so depending upon your cleaner, you may also need a very short piece of hose to keep it close to the pool wall (to keep the hose from tangling)

In-line Leaf Filter works well
I bought this to put in-line on my water bug pool bottom cleaner. Easy to put in service. Relatively easy to empty, but you will get wet doing so. With pine trees in the area, I always seem to collect needles and this stops most of them from getting to my pump.
The only drawback is that the lid can be very hard to pull open. I found that useing some petroleum jelly on the screws and gasket make getting it open much easier.

I use this with a Hayward Super Pump and a Kreepy Krauly
suction side pool cleaner in an in-ground pool. When we are not in the pool I can pretty much leave the Pool cleaner in all the time now. The pump basket no longer fills up with leaves and debris from my neighbors dirty silver maple and black locust forest.
Everything goes in the bag! Awesome! My water is cleaner
and I haven't had to backwash as much this year. Lots of pool "Gadgets" don't always do what you hope, but this thing I love.
