thanks lads, i reckon it could simply be the gauze filter, thanks a lot, i also looked at the other thread, thanks again, i had already had the pipes off, the ones i could see to check they werent blocked etc.

I will be well pleased if it is the gauze filter, thanks a lot friend for your suggestion.
