I keep getting stuff clogged in the hot water hose, that is coming out of the side of the block. ( which according to the instruction with the shower is the suggested place )

Has anyone hooked this hose to the circulation pump. like the heater is on a car. ( I have a outlet on mine that is plugged )

Would this give better flow?

Are you saying that the outlet port on the block is plugged or your shower inlet screen?

The block was not clogged. but the screen at the mixer.

Happens all of the time. I have made a backwash hose for this because it is easier than taking the the box out and cleaning the screen.

Do you flush through the pump or do you connect upstream of the pump? I assume the pump is a positive displacement type in which you can only flow one direction.
