    Removing O ring from Hayward Tristar pump lid

    Is an O ring removal tool or pick recommended to get the O ring out of the cover of strainer basket on Tristar pump? I don't want to destroy it by using a screw driver. It may still be good. Does anyone know of something around the house I could use to get up under it?

    How about a table knife or a cheese spreader? They're usually thin and dull. Slide around both sides to loosen any hardened grease before you try lifting it.

    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.

    Thanks Richard. I found a cheap tool at Auto Zone but think I will try the knives first.
