Question about Rowenta DG-980 Iron
Depending on the age of the reservoir, the earlier version had two pickup tubes that were "Y" together to allow water pickup along the extreme ends of the reservoir. Later versions had a single "L" tube arrangement that was shorter, but did the same thing. As long as the split is submerged, the pump should still be able to draw water when the level is quite low, but once air gets in, the pump will "cavitate" sucking only air and lose prime (like a siphon hose that picks up air). As for the brown filter screen, you will probably have to ask a Rowenta service center, and hopefully get some friendly advice...!
