Are there any tips on how to get the dome lid off the top of a old Baker sand filter? The cover appears to be a synthetic material of some type with 4 fins on top. I just broke the fins off trying to get into the filter. I need to replace the lower outlet gasket.
If times were better I'd replace the filter, but I'd like to keep this one going for a few more years. I replaced the motor and pump about 2-1/2 years ago and at the end of last season I had to replace the bearing in the motor; seems like the new stuff doesn't last.
