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.
