Aquamaxx Hob-1 Problem

Hey all,

I recently purchased an Aquamaxx Hob-1 second hand and after I plugged it in the skimmer is not creating enough bubbles to send the bubbles into the collection cup. Is this a problem with the pump and does it need to be replaced?

Thanks!

First I would take everything apart and clean it in a vinegar solution. Then I would give it some time to see what ends up happening. If it isn't working as intended, I would try to adjust either the height of the collection cup or the air flow into the unit.

I have cleaned the whole thing and even tried changing the height of the collection cup but that did not work. How do I change the air flow?
