cant get lid of chlorinator unscrewed

Postby MS Pool » Sun 20 May, 2007 10:35

I cannot get the chlorinator lid unscrewed. It has a long handle to add leverage and i have tried spraying wd 40 under the edge of the lid, but no luck. Also unscrewed the small screw valve thinking that pressure relief might help. no luck. any ideas? thanks

After 17 views I am surprised no one has suggested heat. Try a small wet hot towel on the cover. You could try pouring hot water but it might expand everything.

good luck.

I just place a 2 X 2 against the rim hash and tap the end with my hand

Well, i've tried all of the above, but it is STUCK!! right now i am chlorinating by putting tabs in the skimmer, but sure would like to get that thing off. when i used the block of wood, it even knocked off one of the "hash" pieces. i also tried heat an knocking in combo. Thanks for your input. if you think of anything else, please post it.
