    thanks very much for your help. it took me six hours to do it but it finally works now. cleaned out the filter but it still trickled so removed the waste hose and it was clogged with limescale. put it all back together then the waste pipe started overflowing so cleaned that out too so now works perfectly. very proud of myself
