2 years old. Recently, it started making a new sound when running water through the group head. When this is happening the water intake hose bounces around the water reservoir. I don't notice any other changes. I would like to intercept whatever is loosening/failing. Thanks.

Is the intake hose partly clogged at some point?  When the vibrator pumps are trying to draw a vacuum, they are very loud and it would explain the hose getting active.

That makes sense. I think it is twisted or crimped. I could easily slide it up or down. sliding it up seemed to help. I will open up the housing if it persists. Thanks.
