    i cut up sponges and soak them in hot water that works great for me and place them around the turner .

    Quote:Remove the screen, and line the bottom perimeter around the water wells with 6 Maxi-Pads. Soak them to the "Max" with warm water.........will hold water for several days. Ideal for "lock-down".
