Remove round cover on the sand filter

Hi All

How do I get the cover off the sand filter, if it is stuck.
In stuck I mean it turns freely to open position... there is a lot of give... but it wont lift off...

The filter has been winterised.. and so has no water and the tap at the bottom is open.

Im guessiing the turning of the lock on the top of the cover somehow allows air to pass between the cover and the body and although the lock turns easily, it does not create the gap needed.

I have had this happen before and the last time I had to call a guy out, so I am hoping I can resolve it myself.

Cheers
Oz

Okay.. so solved with an iron bar and a bit of force.
Put some wd40 on the screw part and put it back on...

Glad you sorted it Ossie, I remember writing a reply but the forum software was glitchy and lost my reply, I then forgot to rewrite it.
