It's a lot better then before. I'm gonna say when I took it apart for the mod I didn't put it back the right way.
I have broke some propellers that way glad it didn't happen to you

I'd agree BUT I said its working better then when I got it. I'm sure there wasn't any gunk or anything on any part of the skimmer it was new outta the box. I did the airline mod and like I've said I think I didn't seat the motor correctly when I put it back together. And when taking it apart today and cleaning it I seated it the right way. It made a click when I pushed the motor into the housing. And now it's working like a charm.

Like I said better then when I first got it. So I must have done something wrong.

Personally, my 9002 needs to be cleaned every 2 months. I also added an air pump to mine. Super charging it. It blows like a volcano. I'm going to get a bigger air pump and put some soda lime in a small bottle to create a co2 scrubber.

That's a great idea!! I'm going to try to do that to my skimmer, worth a try!

Well, tried the air injection thing with a Rena 300 and a 400 I had laying around. The 300 didn't seem to make anything different except making the water level higher, and the 400 pushed too much air ( using both ports ), making the whole thing seize up ( no bubbles ).
Ohh well, still looking for a better skimmer. Worth a try though!
