    Pump basket cover

    Not quite sure where to put this. My pump basket cover was replaced this season and the new cover is so tight I have to use a bar to take it off and put it on. Any suggestion? It's the same part

    Sounds normal. You don't have to go any tighter than hand tight unless it starts sucking air in. You might steel need some leverage to unscrew it, though.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Good silicone lube (not teflon lube) will help a lot.
