I have a reliant pool pump, rl2730.

This season when opening up the pool, I leaned on it too hard when backwashing and caused a leak.

The problem is I don't have a good seal between the strainer housing and the pump cover.

The pump cover ended up getting stripped near where it seals, and so I ordered a new pump cover. I still have the leak though.

I'm sure it has to do with the 'clip' that somehow goes between the strainer housing and the pump cover. I have no idea how to get that in there.

Help needed...

Or if you know of a web resource for assembling the reliant pump I'm all ears....

Thank you
