I run 2 skimmers and they both foam. I don't think lack of organics to remove is it. My 2 skim together at times, seperate at times, etc. However when I cause the water chemistry to change they both stop foaming and usually they are affected for different durations.

Is the water depth the same in the new placement? I know if my sump gets 1" deeper the skimmer overflows and 1" shallower it doesn't produce.

I tried it at all different levels and it didn't seem to make a difference. It's producing ski ate but it's not foaming like I think it should.

Did you clean it well after bringing it home? If you did it may need to break in again for about a week.

Nope literally took it out of the bucket, put it in the car, brought it home and put it in my sump. No changes.
