fishfrik, Yes I have tried to adjust it again and I have replaced the pad, I guess I am just going to have to live with it for now until I can get the money for a different skimmer.

One other thought if my PH 8.0 is low and Cal is very high (630 using the Salifert test) and Alk is 3.82 (I think off of the top of my head since I am not at home at this time to check what I have written down) would this make any difference? I have posted pics of what I am talking about on this same subject.

Thanks for the help.

Well, if u've tried everything being suggested on the link on gave u and nothing work. I would say a solution for u is to get a sump and put the skimmer in there instead of getting a new skimmer. Build a good bubble trap baffle in the sump and ur problem is soved. I don't think the skimmer has anything to do with ur low PH and high Ca. It actually keeps the Ca low lol.
