I struggled with that for awhile. It finally broke in after over a month.

ive had this one for prob 6 months, if not very close. it was broke in and running completely fine, but ever since i started vodka dosing it is worthless. i guess its time to back off the vodka dosing and see what happens.

I have a bubble
Magus 77 and it took a few weeks for it to be dialed in, I have to make a raised platform for it, but it works great now. I looked at their website to see how high they recommend it being in the water column. Prob clean out the entire cup ever 4-5 days.

thats whats really upsetting me...i had it in 9-10" of water for several months and was crusining like a champ...then BAM it just starts overfoaming like a B!. ive made pvc pipe legs that bring it up to about 5-6" of water and the adjustment is wide open and its still foaming up through the cup and pushing the lid off. i think i just need to break down and email bubble magus. i REALLY want a DC powered skimmer, but between the wedding next year and my races...i simply dont have the money for it. only thing i could possibly do is lift it even further out of the water...but that would put me like 3-4" of water and idk if that would affect the performance.

Idk about performance and how that would work out. Have you tried cleaning out the intakes and pumps/impellers? Usually when mine starts to act up I clean everything out and it works perfect again.

yep, 3 times actually. had it torn down to individual pieces. even took the impeller out, cleaned the tunnel and impeller. really think its the vodka doing it. i stopped dosing prob 3-4 days ago and i actually had to lower my skimmer to get the level up high enough.. its still overflowing a bit but it seems to be slowing down
