I posted this in the "Just Getting Started" forum, but deleted it after no responses. Maybe I'll have some better luck here. Anyway, is there a way to clean the basket in the device next to the pump without having water shoot everywhere? There are no valves on my pool/hoses so I can't stop the flow to the thing. I know I have to shut the pump off and turn the filter to the 'Closed' position, but even when I do that, when I get the cover off, there's just too much water shooting out. It's not really dirty yet, but it will be. Is there a solid plate I can put in the skimmer to at least slow the flow down while I'm cleaning the basket in the pump? Any info would be appreciated.
