I have seen growth, barnacles and mussels pack the line from the sea chest to the saltwater manifold. mussels especially like this area because of the waterflow caused by the AC pump when in a marina. I have also seen blades on the metal impeller of the Calpeda pump break off. I have also seen a AC pump with a suction-side leak caused by a mechanical seal failure. Any/all of these are possible issues which can cause lack of flow. I am sure there may be other causes.
