How do I keep my screen from clogging up?

Yep, I'm a beginner at this.

I am using Versatex super opaque white ink on black shirts and a speedball screen i bought at a local art store that did not have a screen mesh count on it. It seems I can only get one nice print out of the screen before it gets clogged and lines start disappearing on the next print. According to the Vesatex directions I added water to the ink to thin it out. This helped but now i have to make three passes for the ink to be bright on the shirt and the second print is still losing lines. Should I add even more water? Is there something else I can add instead of water? Does Vesatex ink just suck?

Thank you.
