The cartridges, yes, sounds like they are nearing their end. As they do shut off, I see no problem in letting them go for awhile; but eventually they will reach a point where they will drip (not shut off completely). Personally I prefer OEM cartridges, not aftermarket.

The first thing that comes to mind is the shut-off valve under the sink (on the hot water side) may not be open all the way.

The second is that there may be dirt/debris in left in the hot side.

The third concern may be that the hot water may be restricted before it gets to the faucet. (Blockage, corrosion, kinks, etc.)

Good morning! please try to uninstall the water filter, then observe if there's water flowing on the tube, if there's water flowing then it might be the shutoff control valve that is defective which mean that we have to replace it. best regards

If the AC POWER LED is flashing, it indicates "excessive battery drain". According to the manual, the fix is to "stop the pump" and "allow the battery to charge." If BOTH the AC power LED AND the CHARGING MODE are flashing, it indicates that the unit failed pre-qualification test #1. The fix is to replace the battery. That would be my guess as well, the battery needs replacing. BTW, I wasn't able to find a manual for the A-5500, but I did find a manual for the A-5200. Different controller, but same LED indicators scheme and probably same under the skin. Here: https://www.pentair.com/content/dam/extranet/flow/manuals/simer/a5200-manual.pdf

Possibly foot valve stuck open. As it leaks down, pressure switch calls for pump. Foot valve leaking will cause loss of prime.

Take it for repair, this toilet is controlled electrically and need to be adjusted or repaired. This is something you not want to repair.

Remember correctly there should be a clip that you take out and there is a tool that you can use to pull the stem out to knows I'll just slide out but other times you may need the special tool you can pick up like at Home Depot or any hardware store

Sounds like air in the line. bleed it at the wall supply line.

Have a rag handy and loosen the line till it sputters then open(turn on) faucet. turn off and tighten line.
