    How to remove Orifice plate on Aqua Genie?

    I think I finally found my clog.
    I can see small bits trying to come out of the orifice plate (thin slits) and I think that is where my clog is that is raising my PSI on my filter. I used a very small thin screwdriver to try and dislodge it but saw a few plastic pieces that would not come out.

    However there are 6 screws holding the plate. AND it is underwater. I tried using a screw driver to remove the screws but I can't get it to grip and they look rusty....
    I tried using a shop vac to pull debris backward in the line before trying to dislodge, should I try again?

    If I can that plate off....
    Thoughts? Idea?
    16x32 in ground. At stairs 3 feet toward 5 feet deep across. DE hayward 3600 micro clear filter. Pump Hayward SP-3007EE 3/4 h.p. and Aqua Genie skimmer system.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Sorry about the slow response. I do not think many members have any experience with the Aqua Genie ... I know nothing about them and can not picture what you are referring too. Perhaps someone will have a thought ...
