Kreepy Krauly Seal - Not sure what's going on here. The seal is generally easy to remove. If it's an old unit, the seal may be corroded on. Try moving it in its groove to free it up. It should eventually move easily. Then try pealing it up out of the groove. If that doesn't work, try soaking the bottom of the cleaner in a mild TSP solution for a couple of hours.


Having a heck of a time getting the old seal off. Any suggestions
