A: Did you install it as per the diagram? It needs to be in a vertical orientation in order to continue to function properly. The main reason an air cushion device stops working is that the air cushion disappears, in order words, the air chamber has filled with water. This can happen if there is a crack in the device allowing water to populate what should be the air chamber (in this specialized case the air cushion is under the very water that you are pumping through the pipes). If there isn't a crack, somehow the device has filled with water and you need open it up and drain it to get it working again.
