I'm just not sure what I am going to do. I think if I can't get this figured out I might ask the company to replace it or to refund my money so I can buy a different skimmer.

No I have not tried the PVC returning hose mod. I was missing with it tonight and noticed the red knob on top of the outlet tube is leaking air. I am just going to have to call Coralife and return it and get another one.

Like I said I can even have the grey knob shut off completly and I still get micro bubbles out of the diffuser, which I think since I am getting air out from around the red knob that is were my problem is just IMO.

Sounds like maybe a crack around the knob or a bad o-ring. Do you have a LFS that you could take that into and have them check it out? Some things need to be seen to troubleshoot.

Well I am sending it back I called them today and told them I have done everything that they had said and nothing will work, then I told them that where the red knob is that has air leaking from there and that it will pull up about6" or so.

So hopefuly the next one will work right for me.
