skimmer help

Recommended Posts

I have a reef Octopus Skimmer with pump OTP 2000 not making bubbles. I found that the shaft was broken in two, so I bought a complete impeller. I installed it today and still no bubbles, I can hear and feel the pump running. What's the deal? Already tried blowing thru it and pinching air hose and not a single bubble

Is it pumping water into the chamber and just no bubbles or it is pumping nothing into the chamber?

If getting water pumped into chamber and it's just a matter of bubbles, then you may have to have the air line clear and closed when you start the pump. Once the pump is running you can open the air and the bubbles should start.
