Ok I was playing with the setting and totally messed it up so following the instructions I set it back to Factory defaults- There should be 6 Green LEDS on 0 I have 1 bottom amber and 4 green

Pointers really appreciated.

OK. I think that means that the pump can't output the selected flow. You may have seen this but the manual says to check the following:

Filter polluted.
Lever not set to fully “ON”.
Hose lines polluted.
Hoses buckled or too long.
Too many additional devices in the hose system (e.g.: CO2, UV clearer, etc.).
Suction basket polluted

Sorry if you've seen this and I'm not being much help 🙂
 
No your being a help, looking at the list

These are fine

Lever not set to fully “ON”.
Hose lines polluted.
Hoses buckled or too long.
Too many additional devices in the hose system (e.g.: CO2, UV clearer, etc.).

So I will check the basket first and see what that does and then if thats ok its onto the Filter

Suction basket polluted
Filter polluted.

Thanks, you were very helpful
I disconnected the filter and the top two sponges IE the Blue and White were blocked with all sorts of crap - probably from my initial planting and setting up - I rinsed them both in tank water but them back in and now I had 6 Green Lights - Thanks again
