Can you take the part off that the bag is attached to? It looks like you just turn it until the *dot* is in the opening by it and then pull it up.

Tome it does not look like that can be taken apart up there. The line looks like it is where the two pieces are bonded together. Can you take a pic where the bag is trying to come out. Someone may have some ideas.

Yes., I will get a better pic. There is a separation between the fixed part of the plastic and the collar that holds the bag. it does spin around but just doesn't seem to come off.

Update on this:
I spoke to Pentair. They claim you can take it apart and change out the bag as needed. They suggested I take it to my PB, who happens to be a Pentair warranty center, and they should be able to take it apart and re-seat the mesh bag.

I guess we will see what happens after I try this.
Thanks for all the feedback.
