Reybeast Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 I have a Euroreef CS6-2 with the Sedra 3500 pump, and my pump is making wayyy too many bubbles, to the point that it comes out the riser tube (even with a foam filter on it), the sump water turns white with bubbles, then my main tank turns white with bubbles and you cant see anything. I have tried letting the skimmer run for a while and let the fish bump into stuff, but it never stops. I then tried mixing some fresh salt water overnight, then putting the pump in a clear bucket to watch the action, and it looked like someone dumped a box of Alkaselzer in there, it was foaming and bubbling like crazy! So it cant be my tank water. I even tried moving the 1/4 inch spacer from the front of the impeller to the rear and that did reduce the amount created, but it seems the bubbles are so small, it just foams. Any thoughts? Oh, the impeller is about 3 months old and not missing teeth. I pinged Euroreef and they gave me some tips and pointed me to http://www.euro-reef.com/euro-reef-product-maintenance.asp I was wondering if any of youse have a skimmer that uses the same pump and if I can bring mine over to try on your skimmer. That way i can see if the problem is with my pump? This is my impeller: http://euro-reef.com/pdf/reference/euro-re...er-assembly.pdf This is what my pump looks like, it has the 3/4 inch outlet: http://www.f3images.com/IMD/250/AG1633/AG1633_1.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
