Cone protein skimmer

I just installed my first in sump skimmer I have a Vertex Omega 150.it has been running for a week now. My question is, is it normal for the skimmers foam line not to return back to where it was before you turned it off?

It can be, but why do you turn it off? When I remove the collection cup i just let the foam pour over until I replace it.

I agree. It will go back up, but just let it keep running. Should only take a couple minutes to dump it and get it back on . If anything bubbles over , the skimmer will grab it again eventually.
