Skimmer is working!!!

Postby Studioksr on Thu Feb 24, 2005 8:07 am

Just wanted to let you know my skimmer is working!!!!!!!! I have asked several members for advice over the past couple of months . . . thanks!

I think the problem was the original air injector part that came with the Otto pump was so tiny it kept clogging up -- I replaced it with a different type of part (from Lee at Aq Spec. -- need to give him credit) It has been running and skimming beautifully since Sunday!

Now I can wake up in the morning without the dread of finding an overflowing skimmer. The good part of this whole thing is that I learned a lot about skimmer problem solving and theory by asking questions here and on reef central and reading everything I could find.

At least for awhile, I hope . . . always a few mysteries and problems to solve but this was a critical one.

Matt, I am so glad the frogspawn is happy, it was great to meet you and your wife the other night!
