Basic thing to check: Remove and clean the check valve thoroughly. Good ideal to try and thoroughly drain tank also.

Thanks, I created a new thread of the issues I'm having with it. Also here's a video of when it was running fine. https://youtu.be/t3JiIV6SFgo

So i guess an admin combined the threads. But anyway the check valve is fine. I just soaked and cleaned it.

Look for a collector in your area to help you these things are a pain sometimes I run about 25 Hercules but I find the 3 and larger are easier to run
