Have a less than a year old pool pump. The lid comes off fairly easy, but I have trouble replacing it. It's Really tight. Have to use a rubber mallet. Is their a trick to putting it on.

It helps if you put pool lube on the seal and the plastic lip. Also, it helps to loosen the lid while the pump is on. Just don't turn it all the way or it will pop off when the pump is turned off.
