I re-read what I wrote, and realized: I didn't mean to imply I haven't CLEANED the prefilter in over a year! That gets done with the regular WC's. So get the filter and at least 2 backup sponges so...

Yea looks like to me that you have assembled it totally bass-ackward. You want to pressurize them not create a vacuum, which it looks like you're doing. And I suspect that you have the inlets and...
