Super skimmer 125

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im having a problem with my skimmer,,, when I put it on the lowest setting, it overflows. When I move the skimmer to a 5 gallon bucket full of saltwater, it works just fine.... This is a recent development and Ive tried just about everything,,,, Any suggestions ???

Ummm...what about water level in the sump?

I second. Is the water level in the sump higher than usual? That causes my skimmers to overflow in no time.

Interesting, that's a big HOB skimmer! Are you sure the tank water line is the same as that of the bucket? According to the manual the top of the pump should only be 1/4" above the water line

This is something that happened all of a sudden, the tank level has not changed... Thank for the help so far....

Fixed  it, it was the pump, when I took it apart, the impeller looked a little funky, fortunately, I had a spare, all is back to normal...
