Hi Guys. I was wondering if you can give me any advice on how to remove my pool pump lid. I never had a problem before until I replaced the filters in my DE pump. At the same time I put silicone lubricant on the O ring for the filter itself, I did the same thing (apparently stupidly) for the gasket on the pump basket/lid, and now I can't get it off.

And the lid looks similar (although not exactly the same) to this:
Any help would be appreciated!
