I've spoken to Sam at Vyair, and he's talked through the pipework, and confirmed it's all correct. He's identified the issue to almost certainly be the flow restrictor. Apparently, as they need deal with all the dirty water, you can get build up in them after several years. Mine is about 6 years old, so it's the likely cause. A new one is in the post. I'll update once it's installed.
If I follwed what Sam said correctly, it's the flow restrictor that creates the pressure build-up in the membrane chamber.
I don't understand how the flow valve either clogging or flowing too freely could cause what you're seeing.
If it chokes all the water would be forced through the membrane taking the dirt with it , if it's not there you wouldn't build pressure to get water through the membrane .
