Probably a silly question but is the solenoid on and the needle valve open? Also, I think your diffuser may be upside down.

Thanks Jeff Yes its open I can see a cpl of bubbles per second in the bbl counter. I thought it might be facing the wrong way as well but when I tried to turn it up facing the tubing pinched

Yeah the stone in the diffuser is bad.

Opportunity is often missed because it's dressed in coveralls and looks like work.
