Just let it run overnight and then see how much crud is in the cup and adjust from there try to get the foam as dry as you can

That's the plan. It's running now. Luckily, I just remembered that my kitchen sink was also on, making RO! Probably would've had a massive flood. I'm not planning to wake up for a good six hours!

Anyway, it's 3:30a here so I'm off to bed, and I'll do a picture or video update in the morning.

This is (10) hours of skimming... Looks like a wet skim, kinda like tea. The skimmer is in 9" of water. What do I need to do to get a drier skim? Less standing water or do I mess with the gate valve?

Adjust the gate valve just a little then recheck it in about an hour . Keep doing that until it's how you like it.

Okay. Which way do I adjust it? Right now the bubbles are just making it to the top of the tube before falling back down the pipe. If I adjust the valve even a little, it starts overflowing a very wet skim.

Here's a quick video I took. Crappy, but you get the idea.

Just watch the water level in the skimmer while turning . One way will raise it and the other lower it. I try to get my water level where the collection cup meets the body . I'll cant check the video I'm sneaking on AA at work lol.
