Eheim classic 2213

My tank has been running for almost a year, and I noticed my canister wasnt flowing as much as it used to so I cleaned the inlet candy cane tube and the spray bar and as much of the hoses that I could, that seemed to work for about 2 weeks and now I'm noticing a low flow again. Anyone experience this problem w their eheim

Have you cleaned your filter media, I assume you have. Check the part where your hoses go into the filter and clean those and if possible clean the actual pump aswell.

I changed the media yesterday and not much change, but I think I'll put some water in my sink and see how much the head pulls.
