As usual...you come through for me again! Your mention of "Milkly Bubbles" did it. I was only getting less than 1/2 the bubbles that I was getting with the Rio 600...even with the air adjustment wide open.
...Well..it just so happens I do have the Pre-skimmer...and the Maxi-Jet 1200 DOES fit in it.....BUT...it is a closer fit with the Venturi addition...
...come to find out...I had the Air Intake crimped in the Preskimmer..and not much air was getting through. I fixed that little problem...turn the adjustment air control about 1 turn....
I now have more bubbles than I have ever seen...and I have skimmate filling the cup already!
Thanks again Malkore!
