Aqua Medic Turboflotor 1000 Multi SL Skimmer Problem

Hi there,

I am currently running this skimmer on a 75 gallon as a hang on. The problem I am having is that I am not getting enough foam to collect in the collection cup. There is foam in the bottom but it never gets high enough to overflow. Not enough air? I have tried shortening and lengthening the air line and nothing seems to change.

I have tried tweaking the flow valves on top with no success. The pump itself is 5 or 6" below the water level. (I shortened this line). In the instruction manual it states that to increase the amount of air and water by:

"removing the grey reduction piece from the suction side of the pump".

Wondering if anyone could show explain to me what this is or if anyone has encountered this prob??
