I had the same problem until I put a ball valve on the return pump. It works like a charm now!

Try a valve, if you can find a non metal valve that has the knob type (I think its called a gate valve) they are so much easier to make fine adjustments on than a ball valve (in my experience fine adjusting a ball valve is a pain in the ba-hooty.
I had both and wish I could have found a 1" gate non metal when I setup the 110 .
In any case being able to adjust the output of your return pump is usually a must...........
