    Ok. mental note - don't remove the mesh from the drum to clean. Big mistake.. the mesh curls so I'm going to have to spend hours disassembling the filter to extract the drum and refit it. *facepalm*

    Curls ??

    You should be able to fit it in situ still by clamping one end first then feeding it around ??

    Ooooohhh no. I thought it would only take 45 minutes yesterday to remove, clean and refit.

    I spent three hours removing the the drum from the filter and reinstalling the mesh before putting it back together again.

    The mesh curls from the edges inwards - not around the drum.

    Anyways - back together, clean and working really well.
