    I have this aqua lifter and my problem was little flaps inside of the diaphrams. I opened it up and superglued them in place so they couldnt fall out of where they were supposed to be. It seemed to work. I havent had a problem since

    I used a piece of string trimmer from my weed wacker. Stuck about 3 in. in the hole and twisted it back and forth in my fingers. That broke all kinds of crap off the sides and I flushed it out. I did this while the overflow was off the tank.

    I took the overflow box off yesterday ( I am glad I used unions on both sides of the ball valve on the plumbing out of the overflow) and I flushed the box as clean as I could get it and I didnt see any gunk in there, other than coraline. If this new pump does not work I will have to buy another overflow box. Keeping my fingers crossed.
