    I guess I didn't clean it good enought now there's dirt in the top. Could I use the kitchen hose to stray it. If I'm not going to use it until next year it should dry out?

    I wet one of those plastic scour pads to clean mine. I would not spray water in the top part, it might get the electronic parts wet and ruin them. Let it fully dry before storing it.

    Quote:I wasn't going to use it until next year and tomorrow I was going to put it in the sun to dry so you don't think I could wet the insides and it would dry out ok? Maybe I could take it apart and then clean it and put it back together again.
