Trying to get to impeller of Varios2-s skimmer pump. Can't for the life of me get the pump head off to get the impeller out for cleaning (pump quit) impeller. Can anyone provide guidance? TIA

Which cover does your pump have... the screw on or the one that pops on?

What skimmer do you have? Can you take a pic of your pump? If its the shroud it should either half turn come off or if its after the shroud it should be a pop off cover that just pops off.

My Varios pumps you take the red bottom off by sliding it then turn the side cover about a 1/4 turn. You do have to use force.
