    SKimmer Basket Stuck

    Something funky must have happened when I was vacuuming with the vac plate, and now my skimmer basket is stuck under the lip that is supposed to hold it up. ANy hints on how to get it back out without destroying it? Tips on what to use to cut it out if thats what it comes to?

    Do you know which skimmer you have?

    I'd try gently prying it loose with a large flat screwdriver.

    I'm not sure of the exact model, just that its a hayward skimmer. I saw a bike tire lever on my counter this morning and was thinking of trying that. Same general idea.
