A Protein Skimmer Question

I have a Octopus-Premium-TS150-Protein-Skimmer and it has seem to really stop making as much foam instead it has more water in than it should. Also the outlet pip gets water everywhere from the water flowing really fast out of it since it points up. Do I need a better skimmer?

I`ve heard that octopus skimmers are one of the best. I dont have one so we`ll wait till someone comes on that does. Moving this to the General hardware and equipment discussion forum.

Check the venturi. It's the hole where the airline plugs into the side of the pump. The hole can get clogged with salt creep and block the air. Less air means less skimmate and more water flowing thru the skimmer.
