When I first got my 8 gpm my main guy caught some serious air with it amd let the side slam into the ground. It bent the skirt bar. Then he kept using it without telling me what happened and bent the rotating bar because it was hitting the bent skirt. I ordered a new bar and skirt. I emded up just bending The skirt back to place because it was EXTREMELY HARD to get off. You might be better off just ordering a whole new cover with skirt already attached. Maybe not… Maybe I’m just lazy. But thats my experience.
