Are you certain the waterways are clear in the powerhead? I've known the tell tale to block from residual salt crystals, even when running on fresh water for a few minutes.
it seems like there is something floating about in the power head and blocks up every now and then.
how can you flush out power head

how do you flush out power head
would there be something floating about inside blocking it
You can get treatments that remove salt build up in powerheads however if it something else that has built up then I am not really sure.

I would be checking any plastic pipes, thermostats and housings etc first to make sure there are no other blockages.
