Red Sea Classic Skimmer

How much time do you spend adjusting this skimmer. I thought I was buying a good skimmer, but I've read some not so positive articles about how you have to adjust it all the time.

I bought one new when I first setup my tank. It would work most of the time, but needed a bit of tweaking to continue exporting.

I kept it 4 weeks, then upgraded to an ES5-3 - more expensive, sure - but works quite well.

I have had mine for a year now and I bought it used. I don't really adjust it. I just check it from time to time to make sure the bubbles are churning.

It has flooded on me twice though due to a mis-adjustment.
