    Hayward Filter Lock Ring...came off!

    So here's a first...I cleaned the filter and vacuumed the pool, no problems. It was pretty dirty so I was going to clean the filter again when I was done, and had a little problem...the lock ring on the filter came unscrewed from the lid itself and came off! I can't get it to lock back onto the lid so now the lid is stuck on and I can't get to the filter. Any suggestions??? Is that supposed to happen or do I need a new filter housing???

    26,000 gal, AG, cartridge filter.

    Install date unknown (pool came with house I bought in 2012)

    This happened to me too- not sure of the best way to handle, but I took my rubber mallet and was able to lossen it. I also have issues getting the ring to lock properly so I often need to give it a whack to seal it. Try using some lube (Jacks Lube works well) to help.

    Good luck.
