Hello! First year pool owner and first time poster here. The pool has been a source of stress for me but hoping to be able to enjoy the pool soon!

The pipe that returns flow to the jet my Polaris connects to has a filter, which I believe is called a Jandy Energy Filter. It is obviously not doing a good job since the Polaris runs 30 mins and then stops due to its little filter on the hose being clogged.

I am trying to replace the filter cartridge inside but can’t take off the bowl. It should twist but does not budge. I feel like it could have been glued on. Any way to remove the glue and the bowl?
