    I cleaned my strainers out the other day and possibly a bit of debris has gone into my pumps, the water flow has slowed right down. What do I do to clean them out? Is there an easy way without having to pull my tank out to get to the pumps?

    Sounds like you've used the resin past its life. Same happened to me with my trolley. Open the pump and clean the diaphragm.

    ...and get rid of the water in your tank, as it'll happen again.

    Not me, do the same stupid things over and over! Like getting out of bed, can't believe I still fall for the idea that there's something to get up for!
