I had the same problem, someone on here recommended a thin carrier bag. Fill up, put the carrier bag over the hole, screw the lid on over the bag. Works a treat. When you start work remove it. 👍

A thin layer of Vaseline around the seal will help stop the gasket stretching and 'folding up'. The round o ring seal doesn't seem to have the same problem. It seems to affect the square gasket.

You can seal the vents with mastic, then drill a small couple of holes just small enough for the width of pole hose either on the top of the tank or the lid itself.

Cut 2lengths of pole hose around 5 inches long and squeeze them through the holes and seal around the edge with silicon.

This will let the tank breath so no vacuum occurs and the water will not be able to splash up the length of the hose 👍

Take the lid off, put a thick carrier bag or similar material over the hole and then screw the lid on over the top of the bag. Simple but effective.
