Thread: lid on pump basket

  1. Back To Top    #1

    lid on pump basket

    The lid on my pump basket is on so tight that I cannot get it off.
    My pump won't prime either.
    Any ideas on how to get the lid off?

    Brook, welcome to TFP!! Without knowing which pump you have, it's very (!) hard to help you. There is a sticky in the "Pool School" section http://www.troublefreepool.com/viewtopic.php?t=52 which tries to explain the need for specific info about your pool when asking questions (the person who wrote it is awesome!!! ) Without knowing you pump, you can try to loosen the lid with the pump running - this often works. Other pumps have 'torque points' which can have a 2X4 or wrench applied to them so as to facilitate lid removal.

    If you'd post back with the pump type, someone here is almost sure to have a similar model and can give you specific help 8)

    Again, welcome to this forum!! we will do our best to help answer any future questions you may have!
