    i was just thinking;) the bottom nozzles have 2 rubber caps and two rubber sleaves...do you think it will work it i increased the leight of the bottom rubber sleave to keep the fine fert. dust?i think it is the venturi that is clogging...

    Try a cheese cloth as a filter when you are adding water. If that doesn't help then install an inline filter like a gas filter, it should help.
