need help with excalibur skimmer
I was in the process today of test-driving my new 75gal setup -- to make sure the plumbing works, no leaks, etc. But when it came time to set up the Excalibur SV2 skimmer, I was totally stumped. The directions make little sense, so I had to start guessing, but I have no idea if I got it right.
The directions say "connect the pump to the clear tube", but by doing so there is no air supply for the bubbles, so before long the skimmer overflows. So, that can't be right.
The pump (RIO RF10) comes with oodles of little parts and attachments, one of which was a little connector with an air hose, so I tried putting that between the pump and the skimmer. Seems to work (i.e. skimmer chamber fills with bubbles) but I'd really like to know if this is the intended installation. Anyone know?
