    Best way to clean basket

    What's the best way to clean this bad boy? I tap it against the side of the trash and all the loose junk falls out, but the wet debris just sticks in there. Anyone have any best practices? Thanks

    I have a faucet with a short hose and a sprayer near my pump. When it gets dirty, it gets the hose.

    Jet stream on the hose nozzle. Do it over the lawn. Sometimes it needs a brushing from the outside to push the crud through.

    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.

    Hose, shooting from the outside in, and blowing the gunk back towards the top opening. Takes a bit of experimenting to get the right feel for how to do it quickly and efficiently.
