2 weeks ago, I changed the "O" Ring on my Hayward Leaf Canister. The new "O" ring was really hard to put in (it seemed just a very tiny bit oversized - 1/10th oversized), but I lubed it up really good and fit it in.
I tried opening it up yesterday to clean it and it wouldn't open/unscrew. I tried it on and off for 3 hours and nothing. I took it out to dry today, and tried again... to no avail. I even broke the handle off of it in my efforts.
Does anybody have any tips on how to get the friggn' top to unscrew or am I S.O.L. and should just go buy a new one?
Thank you in advance.
Attached is the same type of canister that I have.
