    Pump basket sealant?

    Before I take the cover off the pool, I want to check and empty the basket right before the pump (not the skimmer basket). It says I need to apply something to the lid before putting it back on so it seals good, but it's Sunday and the pool stores around here are closed. Is there something I can pick up at Home Depot or an auto parts store that will serve the same purpose?

    Thanks, looking forward to another season of Trouble Free Pool!

    You want silicon grease. They should have it somewhere near the faucet repair stuff.

    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!
