I'm gonna go on a limb here and disagree with Kevin.
From what I see on the manufactureres web page, the pump should go on the upper fitting. The gizmo in the center looks like an air infuser (different from a venturi, I forget the name). The counter current only happens in the center chamber, the outlet at the bottom prevents bubbles from returnng to the sump. With so many micro bubbles being produced in the current configuration, I don't see how it could work with the inlet/outlet reversed. I think the weak skimate was a result of overskimming. He needs to throttle the pump and/or air a little.

I think your right "Anemoneman", not that I do not think that kevin knows what he's doing, cause I do value his opinion, but no madder how much i adjust the pump, it either fills up slowly or fast, but either way when it's hooked up the way kevin suggests then my cup fillith-up and runnith-over with water and out onto the floor. thanks anyway T
